    aftermarket wheels

    Hi, fresh on the forum, my question, is there any issue on putting 17 inch wheels on the 500E?

    11BDF9D8-F900-4B4F-9157-4D8F367A42C6.jpgIdk if they will fit. Its probably going to decrease your range and be a harsher ride with lower profile tires. I put 15 konig dial ins on mine.

    Are they 4x98s or 4-100s?

    Abarth wheels are a direct fit at 4x98, but switching an E to anything less aero it's best to get something light unless you don't care about range or acceleration. Stock E wheels are pretty heavy, so there's lots of room to lower the weight for better city range & zip, but nearly everything is less aero, which drops highway range.

    With wheels around 10 pounds you can break even with better city range & worse highway range, depending on your mix miles at slow & high speeds.

    Matching-width rims all-around works fine. Some users (including 2 of my friends) even had stock front & back reversed without any problem.

    Reasonably-priced light rims are a bit tough to find with 4x98, but many users including me are running 4x100s with floating-cone bolts, generally called "wobble" bolts, even though they do NOT wobble. The 12x1.25mm thread bolts are rock-solid. It's just the cones that slide into alignment & are solidly held in place once tight. IF like me you want service at America's Tire, you need the bolts to protrude at least 10mm from the back of the wheel, to engage 8 full turns into the hub. I happened on my bolts by accident, which protrude enough from MY wheels' hubs with 30mm shank length (from tip to narrow end of cone), but a quick Amazon search didn't show any that long, so it would be nice if someone else reading this can find a source & post it here.

    If you're willing to work with that, the best deals I found on light 15" wheels were at Good-Win-Racing.com

    Miata NA/NB 1990-2005 Wheels - Mazda Performance Parts (good-win-racing.com)

    I went with Advanti Storms several years ago, & I'd probably do it again...:

    Advanti Racing Storm S1 15x7 Titanium Mirror Finish for Miata , 15x7 (good-win-racing.com)

    The only exception is that for a bit more, the Enkei RPF-1 is lighter, but I don't like the look:

    You'll see a significant range hit. From what others have reported there isn't much room for extra tire. The 185/55R15 stock tire has a 23" diameter. A 195/40R17 would be 23.1" diameter and *might* fit and it's a very uncommon size tire.

    Thanks for the welcome, is there less room than the Abarth? Maybe 16's would work better. Any concerns with the brake regenerating system?

    Some 500e owners are running 17" Abarth wheels, and in general anything that fits a gas 500 will also fit a 500e.

    Here's one with a set from Madness: https://shop.500madness.com/fiat-500...-tires-pid1829

    Does anyone know why the front and rear wheels are sized differently? And is that something to consider when replacing them?

    This will be useful in case you aren't aware of it.

    185/55R15 - stock size tire is 23.0" diameter

    Outbackbill reported in the snow tires for Minnesota thread that a 195/60R15 tire rubbed on the inner fender while turning. This would be a 24.2" diameter and 10mm wider than stock.

    Fiat 500 Madness sells their kit with a 205/40R17 tire which is the stock Abarth tire size. This is 23.5" diameter and 20mm wider than stock.

    So it sounds like you could get away with some more width, just not much more diameter.
