although I really want wider wheels and tires...
1. I LOVE the stock Abarth wheels
2. My tires are still new
Sooooo with that said I think I'm OK with where the fronts sit, but I want to push my rear wheels fender flush. So 2 questions...
1. Which spacers are you guys running that are quality items that wont ruin my car
2. What size are you running and why?

I was also thinking spacer, but from what I understand, none of the wheel spacers come with pre-pressed in studs. I have used them in porsches , no problem, easy install. But the studs separate from the spacers is a PITA. I you find spaces that come with pre pressed studs , let me know.

Had some on a 67 Galaxie 390 fastback years ago, they were great, but as Fiatbreath stated the studs were pre-pressed, and they were solid billet aluminium high quality units.

IL Motosport, Eibach System4 and H&R DRM have pre-pressed studs.

Without lowering 15/20 (30/40mm) is the choice with OE wheels.


20/25 for the bad boy look on lowered cars incl. alignment.
Ichira from Madness are pre pressed. I have the 20/25 mm

I ordered 15 mm Spacers from them, same brand . They where not pressed. So not sure what's going on
I may not understand pressed being a novice. The bolts were affixed to the spacer. Sorry Dennis.

Hi, I need your help guys!

I'm Running stock Lusso wheels with 205/45/17 and thinking of spacers either from Eibach or ILmotorsports.
FRONT: 15mm (30 total on axle)
REAR: either 15mm (30) or 20mm (40).

Down the road I want to get Ohlins R&T with some lowering (undecided as to how much lowering but will be min. 15mm and max. 30mm lower, that's between 0.6" and 1.2" for you imperial fans).

I have 2 questions:
1- Will have have to cut the stock studs or can the Lusso wheel recesses accommodate them?
2- Is there any risk of rubbing over bumps or full steering lock after I lower the car (I assume there is zero risk on OEM height)?

In my experience

1)yes you'll need to cut them
2) no at 15/20
