195/45/14 tyres for sei abarth alloys?

Will they actually fit? ive done searching and no-ones recommended the 195/45/14 tyres for the sei alloys, only 175/50's or 185/50's. But theres naff all range available and i want some rainsports - available in 195/45/14.

The wheel is only 5.5" wide, so will the tyre fit fine, or am i falling on the side of caution. Plus bear in mind im lowering my cinq 40mm

Cheers

Yes, they will fit but will overhang the rims slightly. A mate had them.

I have 195/45/14 tyres.

I have TSW Alpines dont know if they are wider than the abarths though.

With pete as well they do overhang slightly

Be warned but they do catch with weight in the back and i have had no lowering

Yes sort of.
