    What is the largest tire diameter that will fit?

    Last Friday I bought my wife a 2013 Fiat 500 Pop. Like they say, it is so cute you want to huge it. She absolutely adores it. However, I noticed it doesn't have much ground clearance with the stock tires, just a little over 4 inches, and unfortunately the pot holes and speed bumps where we live are ridiculous. The stock tires are 185/55/15 which are 23 inches in diameter. I was wondering if anyone knows if I could go to a 175/65/15 size tire which is 24 inches in diameter? It is also a little narrower, 6.9 inch section width vs stock 7.3, which might help avoid rubbing on really sharp turning. This would give me about an extra half inch of ground clearance which doesn't sound like much more but it actually is. It looks like 24 inch diameter tires would fit but I was wondering if anyone has tried them. I see they fit the Abarth stock with 205/40/17 which are 23.7 inches in diameter, which is close to the 24 inches. I know this will mess up my speedo, but will it play havoc with my auto trany or ESC or anything else? Any advice or words of wisdom are greatly appreciated. Thanks. Gary

    Yup, that extra 1/2" doesn't sound worth it but it can make a difference..... It can also make a difference when going through a little deeper snow.

    Nevermind. After turning the front wheels all the way to the left and then to the right, I can see the 23 inch stock 185/55/15 barely clear. It looks like 24 inch wheels would rub when going around corners. Bummer. I need different tires on it anyway and I was hoping going a little larger diameter tire would give me more clearance. My Datsun 280Z sports car has more ground clearance than this thing!
