Fiat 126 BIS alloys
« on: July 05, 2019, 06:45:14 PM »
Good Evening,

I have been searching and searching for some nice alloys to go on my BIS. I just cannot seem to find any! Any suggestions from anyone?  8)

I got alfasud alloys on mine - 165/55/13 :thumbup most 13” alloys from Fiats from the 80s and 90s will fit such as the X1/9, Uno, cinquecento And seicento

I'm using Cinquecento Sporting alloys but have slot mags to fit eventually.
They're 5.5x 13 with 165/55 x 13 tyres.
The 1st picture shows one of each

Not sure what is the brand of my alloys. The tire sizes are: Front 155/65R13 73T; Rear 165/55R13 70H. The rear alloy thickness of the rear, visually, look slightly wider than the front alloys. On the face of the alloy, there is embossed WBA44350.

I think Gadge's Alfa Romeo alloys look really cool!! It looks like it was made for the car.

I've got 155/65 R13s on each corner, but the front right is rubbing the front of the arch.

I've bought a cheap arch roller from eBay but I'm not having much luck with it.

I've tried looking for a smaller profile tyre, but I'm not sure that's the answer.

155/60R13 is the same diameter as 135/80R13. The size is popular in Japan.

Probably the offset is kind of problematic as well.

Did you mean r12 on that second size?

I've no idea about offset. What should I be looking at?

My bad, sorry. 135/70R13, but it also equals 135/80R12.

We seem so limited in the UK but then you look at the cars in Poland and every car has different alloys  :o

I run 13" superlites on mine.

My vote goes to Gadge, the best looking wheels of the bunch.

I on the other hand plan to keep it simple, respray the orig wheels and fit the medium plastic hubcaps, something like the aircooled cars had.

Those wheels will be up for sale soon as I’m planing on getting my steels powder coated :thumbup

I’m not sure why those wheels are rubbing though? The 165/5513 size has been tried so many times and on lowered or standard suspension so can’t see any reason why they won’t fit. The only thing I can think of is perhaps the arch is smaller? (Series 1 wings on a bis?)

EDIT sorry just re-read the earlier post i see your fitting 155s . I haven’t come across a 126 with 155/65s on as yet

They are 155/65 13, not 165/55.  I'm now shopping for a set of 165/55.

Just realised that I am using now a friend's set of winter 145/70R13 over Panda rims. Comparing the diameter to 155/65R13, 145/70 is 2mm larger. I can't provide a pic at the moment, but there is a significant gap between the tyre and the fender.

Hi,
mine is a aircooled from 1999, and don't know if this makes a difference, but I just installed some 145/70R13 on my rims with no problems on clearance. They are 5.5j. Actually I should have gone for the 155/65R13 which would look better (though I like the look with the ones I put on now). Both these sizes are very close to each other regarding diameter.

Don't understand why you are having problems with that tire size. I tried a 155/70R13 before on the front wheels and rubbed the inner linings on arches when turning. But I'm still considering that size for the rear wheels.
