I have a urgent question as I'm pending purchase of some rims and wheels for my Smart.

I have a 2012 Smart Pure, stock ugly wheels with rim covers on them.

The ones I'm looking at are the old 6-spoke rims with wheels that the seller says are off of a 2007.

Will they fit? I already checked and the tire sizes are 175/55r15 and 155/60r15, just like the ones currently on my smart.

The rims you are looking at may be off of a 450, probably sourced from Canada. You may want to check compatibility.

The 2007 is a 451 like yours. The first year for the 451 in the US was 2008. The 2007 451 was never legally sold in the US or Canada, but was sold in Europe. Do you have any more info on the wheels?

What little (very little) info I've found says that the 2007 and 2012 use the exact same wheel size. Same center bore, lug, fastener, wheel size, and tire size. However I'm not sure how reputable the wheel guide is that I'm using. https://www.wheel-size.com/

The wheel guide is most likely correct. I would question the seller as to how he came about owning wheels never offered in the US. Are you and he sure the wheels are from a 2007 and not a later year car?

The same three lug bolt pattern will fit all years 451 from 2007 until 2015. The 453 changed to a 4-lug pattern.

I'm not sure, no. It's a kinda ****ty wrecking yard near me, just from messaging with the guy it seems like he doesn't know anything about Smarts.

They should have a part number if they are an OE wheel. Google the part number and you should find out what version of smart they are for.
