Re: Spacers

More expensive than I thought they'd be! Never looked at prices before.
Oh and cheers Eclipze

Re: Spacers

No. GP are 4x100, centre bore 56.1mm, standard Fiat (ie. Punto) are 4x98, 58.1mm

What size spacers are you after? FK Automotive do various sizes for the GP/Corsa.

Re: Spacers

They're not toys, bear in mind that spacing the wheels too far out will put additional strain on a multitude of components. There is a standard acceptable offset (ET) value for every car, staying within about 3mm of that either way is acceptable but adding an extra 25mm say is just stupid and asking for trouble.

Personally, I don't know what standard offset on a Grande is (I'm sure the answer will be in one of your FAQ's though). The 'point' of spacers, is to allow the fitting of aftermarket wheels which have limited offset options, in order to get them to sit properly and keep any drivetrain stresses within acceptable limits.

Re: Spacers

And don't forget that the Abarth Puntos have an additional 10mm spacing from standard so the alloys can get past the Brembo brakes.

And that just about does it. Have you seen how close the calipers are to the alloys ? You could get a sheet of paper inbetween them! : P
