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.

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).
