Sei Abarth Tyres

I'm trying to find tyres for my sei abarth 14's. I can't afford the 175/50/14's at 72 each. Would 155/55/14's be fine, have tried 185/55/14's but they scrub too much.

185/50 14 is better then 155/55 are thin and tall in relation to width, no good.

Cool, thanks, i'll take a look at prices. What about 165/55? I'm trying to keep the rolling radius as close to the original and keep the price down.

Re: Sei Abarth Tyres

Not likely to be any use. The big issue with 5.5J 14" wheels is the cost as there are no cheap performance ones out there. Really, you're stuck with the 185/50/14s. (Contis are probably the best bet.)

BUT, your life depends on the tyres -- it is well worth fitting decent ones.
