    Are we absolutely sure that the bolt pattern didn't get changed to 4x100mm? I'd be absolutely stunned if they gave us a 98mm bolt pattern - considering the fact that to my knowledge there isn't a single other car on the market here with that configuration... I guess I'd like to know what your source is; I realize the euro spec does use the 98. Might have to find some "wobbly bolts" I guess.

    Sorry to sound contrarian but...

    Are you sure? If you look at the photograph at the top of the forum site, the US fiat looks to use a 5 bolt pattern on the Sport model in any event.

    Now I could be wrong but it looks that way in the photo.

    Looking at this photo below all the stock 500 wheels, including the sport wheels, have a emblem cover over the wheel nuts:



    The only photo I have seen showing the bolt pattern is from the Mopar 500 at the Detroit Auto Show

    Oh, you're right, never mind then.

    I should've known that.

    I don't know why Fiat would change the bolt pattern just for the U.S. market.

    I may be wrong but I think the 4 x 98 has been a Fiat standard for decades, think the 850, 128, X1/9 and other used it (of course in 13" and 14" versions). Did they ever use any other? 4 x 100 does sound familiar, was that used on Alfa's?

    Jim M. is right about the 4 x 98 being a Fiat "standard". Does anyone know if the 500 uses lug bolts or studs? I used to hate those lug bolts on the X1/9. I changed them to studs on my race cars.
