he aint got a cento


these are new wheels, contact the seller and probably will do set with correct offset for the panda

Looked high and low and all the 98 PCD wheels have a 28 off set :bang: for chinqs surely it wont stick out that much I aint going to lower it so I dont think they will rub the outer arches and with the 27 et they shouldnt rub the inner arches either..there is a set of wheels on ebay as well that were fitted to a uno with the off set of 35 but the tyres are wrong size :bang:

OK these have turned up in classifieds..

https://www.fiatforum.com/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=8122&limit=recent

They are 5.5J and not 5J as fiat state and the tyre size is wrong but anyone know if they will fit without using spacers :chin:

You need to know the ET of wheel you have to start with before anyone could offer advice, though as has been said I have seen 14" 5J Panda wheels on Cinq's and you have to assume that if they fit in that direction, then the opposite is true.

But so you know J is the rim profile for fittings tyres, and the number before is width in inches, so going from a 5 to 5.5 is hardly big jump, even the standard 13" wheel as fitted to Cinq Sporting are 5.5" wide.

You say the tyres are wrong size, do you mean wrong size as compared to what's on your car because that's a must as they are 1/2" wider, wrong size for the wheel, which for a 5.5" wheel they are not, or wrong size compared to what Fiat fitted as standard which was a 175/50 not a 185/50. I would say that 90% of Abarth wheel owners run this size as the 175/50 offers very little options so you are pretty much stuck to OE Pirelli rubber which is TBH poor mytyre don't even list any in that size, whereas move to the slightly bigger tyre and you get Conti Sport, Yokohama, Dunlop, Fulda etc
