This is what mine looked like before. Itís totally rust free (almost), just has little dents and scuffs on every panel. Alloys are gone -not a fan. Should be resprayed soon, watch this space...

Not sure yet. Iíve got a set of Palio wheels as a back up (I think theyíre the best factory alloy for this car)
Iím still undecided. Minilites (or ultralites) are v nice, I like the Punto gt alloys too. I had a set of dark grey 14í Lancia alloys, not sure if they were from a Y10 or Dedra, but ended up selling them.
All I know is, is that the deep dish looks really good on a 127.

Yes, the original Sport steels actually look good. The Palio ones were a cost option on the Sport though, so those are the 2 correct ones for a mk2 127.

I've often wondered about 3 different wheels on the 127 but have never seen them fitted. The early Strada steels I think would work well (oddly I've just been offered a spare set!), as well as the Uno/Panda OE option alloys, or the Alfasud 13" alloys.


What do you reckon about how any of these would work on a 127?

I think they all look good actually
I'm a member of a few 127 groups on Facebook and you get to see so many different styles of wheels put on the 127 and I have to say, there aren't many that look right on the car. Its always safe to stick with Fiat wheels (or Alfa/Lancia/Ferrari) of the same era
I'm tempted to go with my original gut feeling and go for the 131 steel wheel
