Wheels for 456

Me again...Tires: Pirelli P Zero Rosso Assimetro or Michelin pilot super sport ? (Hearing the latter gives much better comfort? ) Not planning to make the car look 'tuned' or unoriginal but feel the original ones doesnt make the car look as good as it can look!?!! Wheels/Rims : Novitec NF2 or Kahn Monza? I really really like the latter ones...BUT they are both very expensive.. :-(

Depends on how much you want to spend. 19" wheels really update the look of a 456/456M. I an running NF2s with P Zero Rossos on my car. Choices for NF2 (9x19 F, 12.5x19 R) are PZero Rossos in 255/35 19 F, 355/25 19 R or PSS in 255/35 19 F and 345/30 19 R. NF2s look good on 456s. No clue what a Kahn Monza is. The NF2s are copies of the Enzo wheels and designed for Ferraris.

I'm usually quite conservative with my thoughts on modifying F cars, but those wheels do look very well on the 456.

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello
Ex's: Dino 308 GT4, 612 Scaglietti
The Rest: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Porsche 911 2.7s, Porsche 911 3.2 Carerra, Ducati 916... and the Land Rovers

I think the 456 is ageing quite well.
In fact, I like the lines very much more now than when the model was first released.

Then again, a decent set of 19" wheels can only improve it's attractiveness quotient as evidenced in the posted photos.

I agree Barry, those wheels add just the right amount of sportiness.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Looks a lot like the wheels I had on my old Boxster. You need to check and see if they make the wheels in the correct widths, offsets and bolt pattern. The 458 bolt pattern is 5x114.3 mm (4.5") and the 456 is 5x108 mm.

I am not sure I'd put anything bigger than 19' on the 456 / m. The Novitec do look nice though, I believe these are the same?

Affirmative, same wheels with the silver/titanium centers available on 456Ms, I believe.

Aftermarket rims for my 456M GTA 2000?

Hi guys, I am a new member and as all new Ferrari owners am quite worried due to my lack of experience regarding fitting a set of aftermarket rims let alone tyres that are supposed to match.
I grossly underestimated the variables when it comes to doing this. After talking directly to a number of dealers on the net for BBS, Speedline, HRE & OZ rims all I seem to have achieved is more confusion as most bait you to enter in your car Make, model & year throw up a set of rim options supposedly suited to your car details then they contradict themselves by telling me via email that the models I picked based on their search engine criteria cannot be fitted to my car.
All I want is to fit some decent 19's like fellow members in this post have done but do not know much at all regarding other modifications like offset & other structural modifications that must or must not be done to the vehicle like suspension or axel work?
Is there such a thing as buying a set of 19's that are 8.5x19 & 10x19 (trying to keep width same as OEM 17's) that can be fitted to your car direct from the store? How much can I vary out of the standard rim width's as I have read it is not wise to do so affecting ride ability? (tyre & rim calculators)
I really like the Novitec model & the Kahn model displayed, will do more research.
I defer my judgment to experienced Ferrari owners like yourselves, especially 456 owners.
Thus I would appreciate your feedback when you are so inclined to respond. Thanks guys.

Welcome to Ferrari Life. In general 9" is probably about as wide as you want to go on the fronts and just about any width will fit on the rear. The Novitecs are 12.5" if that gives you a clue. Another excellent option for the 456/456M are 18" 575M wheels, which are 8.5Jx18 F and 10.5Jx18 R. On all of these you want tires that are ~26" in diameter. 19" 575 wheels are even better, but very expensive. Top two are the 19" modulars and bottom one is my old set of 18" 575M wheels on a friend's 456M.

Are these headlights Euro spec or a custom conversion? Nice look a la 550!

Scott- No clue. We have lots of photos of that car, but no details at all and many have searched and found nothing. Also has a rear diffuser.

Thanks Terry, Appreciate the feedback only variable left is finding the correct or approximate offset parameters. I must learn more about offset & understand how spacers are applied for there does not seem to exist any wheel (besides the OEM Speedline's) specifically with the F: 50mm & R: 24.6mm offset values. It's also very difficult to find 108mm bolts for the wheels I like most are either lower or higher values.
Will get there eventually, congrats on the 456 pics they are awesome.
Regards, Vern

Vern- The bolts are not 108 mm, the bolt pattern on the wheels is five bolts with 108 mm circular diameter pattern. Ferrari bolt patterns were the same from the Dino 246 through the F430 series. The 612 and later Ferraris have a larger bolt circle diameter, 114.3 mm (4.5"), which matched up with more wheel manufacturers and is quite common on US cars.

Offsets can differ a few mms and not cause much problem.

Thanks Terry,
I appreciate the knowledge as things are starting to make more sense. I have just received feedback from UK regarding a set of rims (OZ Ultraleggera HLT) I want and the guy there said;
8.5x195/108 et27 and the rears are 11x19 et35 = the face of the wheels will sitfurther out by 23mm on the front compared to your standard wheel. the rearswill sit approx 3mm further out.
I hope these offsets will work?
Once again thanks for the feedback and advise I am most greatful. Almost there mate...

Except for the 19.5" wheels on the front, should work fine. Kidding.

Thanks Terry for the thumbs up re offset specs,
That's what I get for copy & pasting the persons comment.
In Victoria & NSW, AUS state law dictates that we are not permitted to deviate + or - 15mm from the rolling diameter of the manufacturers specs. Thus fitting 20's means I have to reduce the profile to 30 for front, 25 for rear sounds like a bumpy ride. In your opinion is it wiser to stick to the 19's with 35 in front & 30 for the rear?

Vern- I would put standard 575 tire sizes on her, 255/35 19 F and 305/30 19 R. The best tire out there right now is the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and they come in those sizes. Both are around 26" in diameter, similar to the 17" wheels and tires that came OEM.

I appreciate your advice. That's exactly what I have been looking at. The only variable is a 295/30 19 on the rear & Michelin PS2's. Trying to find tyres over 295 in this country is almost impossible. I will also purchase a rear rim with 11 inches width. I'm a little worried about such a massive wheel e.g. over 295 or 11 inches like your massive 12.5 & 305 or above that you have. Do they not stick out of the wheel arch?
Thanks once again for your feedback.
Enjoy the weekend,
Vern
