    I had 16mm spacers on stock 16" wheels on my Abarth. No issues. The tops of the tires didn't even stick out past the fender.

    Over 100k kms and no wheel bearing issues either. They're on another members Abarth now.

    I know this will shock some of you... but a 12mm spacer will move your wheel out... wait for it....

    16mm spacers on 17" wheels

    I put 16mm spacers on the front only 17" Abarth wheels on our 2015 Abarth 500; also replaced the rear torsion bar with a 28mm. I'm sure the torsion bar will help me in Autocross, and I think a wider front track might help too. The track is increased by 1.25 inches ( 16/25.4 X 2 = 1.2598" ). Pictures are in my public albums, but I'll post here, too. I don't really see that much difference; I feel the ride and handling is better in daily driving.

    GoPedal; 500Madness 28mm rear torsion bar; polished aluminum oil cap; K&N air filter; 16mm spacers on front wheels, 17" bronze Abarth wheels with Pirelli's; Italian stripes, red stripes, red Abarth stripes, red checkerboard roof; red and black Sila floor and trunk mats, red leather hatch strap, badges and vinyl track and autocross cones decals,...needs more scorpions...
