My name is Kim and I sell FIATS. :) I love my job! I've met so many great fiat owners and everyone is so nice! I own a 2013 500 Abarth 5 speed. I am looking forward to driving the 124 Spider Abarth manual when we get them in!

I am also looking forward to driving a manual 124 Abarth. What Chicago dealer are you with? I love Chicago, we had Fiat Freak Out there a few years ago, it was fun!

Hi Kim, Is there a way to get all season radials on the new Spider? Can you swap the performance tires standard with all season radials? Living in Chicago, you know there are going to be Spiders driven more than just 3 seasons. Thanks in advance for your answer!

"All-season tires" are really no-season tire. Stick with the performance tires and buy a set of snows (preferably mounted on a dedicated set of wheels). You and your Spider will be glad you did.

Be careful what you wish for, Kim. I drove a manual Spider Abarth and can't wait to get one.

Have to agree with Chipshot on that mark. Drove with all-seasons for about 6 months, immediately took them off and bought dedicated tires for winter and summer. You'll have many more comforts and it's much safer to go with the latter. Tires and brakes are two things you should never try to compromise on. Safety First ;)
