Hey,

I just got some UNO abarth alloys with some 185/60 13 tyres, came with 2 spacers and 2 sets of longer bolts for the back

but both the front and the back seem to rub tho

the front already had spacers on but are really tiny, factory fitted?

if i put the ones i got for the back on the front then it works, but is it safe to have 2 spacers? also i need 2 sets of longer bolts, where do i get them from?

Check what the offset is of those wheels, they will be i think 45mm offset on a UT, tho i can't verify this, therefore if fitting to a Cinq/Sei you need an offset of 30mm so you need 15mm spacers all round (and still retian the 3mm standard spacers as found on Cinq sporting) and with that size of spacer I would recomend hub centric spacers and a nut and bolt conversion.

Tyre profile could also still make them rub if even the offset issue is cured and the car is lowered.
