Re: Newer 500 wheels on an X?

It should be do-able as they'll have the same PCD and centre bore, but offset I don't know about. The main concern would be the diameter, am I right in thinking the X uses 13" wheels? 500's smallest wheels are 15" which could add a lot of weight and extra strain onto the gearbox.

I tried fitting Alfa 146 'GTV style' 15" wheels on my X with 10mm spacers. I expect they are different offset to the new 500. They fitted on the back but hit the spring perches on the front so large spacers required and probably would be beyond the wheel arches? This was with 185 55 15 tyres.
