happy new year and first mod !!

basically just followed not4one's lead and put on 1.5 cm rear spacers on my MC-S and spider from hill engineering thru ricambi.

now it looks good and turns quicker. going to put them on my 612 later too.

Hi Terry, 25mm per side is a fair add to the overall track. Any problems with tyre clearance on the arches, or other downsides? Is there a discernible difference in handling. I've been thinking of this mod too and news the time to do it while the car is in hibernation. Did you also go Hill Engineering or another supplier?

Cheers
Michael

I never thought it would make that big a difference, but they look much better with the spacers!

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

Michael- No problems with the original 575M wheels or the 12.5 x 19 NF2s and 355/25 19 tires. Wheel wells are huge. 25 mm spacers will work fine with your modulars, too.

John, that is a much needed mod on the 458. It looks great and one question... Why is there no Ducati in the garage?

Thanks Terry, so did you or anyone else find a desernible improvement in handling or feel? It's not a hugely expensive mod so any improvement is probably worth it.

Also, I looked at Hill Engineering's website and there are two types of spacers. The first that fit with longer wheel bolts and the second that bolt to the hub and use the same wheel bolts which looks like what John used at least on the Masser. I guess it depends on the configuration of the discs on the car?

Cheers
Michael

terry can tell u more, but I definitely felt it turn in faster and easier, not that it need it.
but looks alone is worth the $270 per axle.
458/612/599/masers/Cali's all use the same type Ones and longer bolts.
I don't recommend them at all, I like to be the only one with them.

Michael- For me, it was mostly cosmetic since the NF2s generally need spacers for the Maranellos. But it looked so good on the standard 18" wheels, I would do it if I switched to the 19" modulars. It does increase track slightly, but I did not notice much change with the 18" wheels. Let me see if I have any photos of the 18" wheels with the spacers. Definitely filled out the wheelwells better.

Glad John could feel some improvement on his Ferrari and Maserati. His 458 already has 11" wheels vs the stock 458's 10.5" rears, so an extra 1/2" (0.6" actually) of track on each side (1.2" total) probably helped his mid-engine Ferrari feel more planted.
