Offered wheels from what?

 

 

205/45 Will be a good 10mm taller than the 195, If its a wider wheel or a different

offset then they may foul the suspension or stick out too far and contact the arches.

They are from a fiat 500 which I think the 2012 KA is built on the same chassis

Yeah its a Fiat 500 under the skin with a different body and suspension setup.

 

Ford improved the suspension for the KA.

 

Were the wheels from the Standard 500 not one the 57 other variations?

 

57 Other cars that are a Fiat %00 or 500L or 500X or....   :)

 

 

If you do fit them make sure they clear the suspension and arches, also think about what

happens when you hit a bump. Will the clearance reduce?

 

Also your speed will underread, you will be travelling faster than it shows. (not a big amount).

 MAK Torino Fiat 500 6.5x16"is the description so I'm guessing a fiat 500 not a variant
