Have a play with tyre pressures to see what suits you best. Fiat recommend 32 psi all round but you could try lowering the rears to take some understeer away. With the suspension mods I've made to my car I run 32 front and 28 rear, handles well and makes the ride a bit better.

Mine's dropped 40mm, and yup - the tyres go straight on, I've got a set of BF Goodrich 175/50 13's on mine - haven't gone for 14's or 15's as I don't want to lose acceleration. There's a pic of the tyres on my site linked below.

The BFG's were £175 fitted for 4 if that's any help to you, springs were £80
