Mystery 308 Wheels?

Hello,
I am trying to find this wheel to replace an existing one. It's a 16" wheel and there are no markings anywhere on it. There was a set on my 85 308 when I purchased it in California in 1997. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are they centerlock? There is a Mondial on Ebay- maybe just ending this AM with the same wheels. The listing suggested they were factory wheels special ordered ( 1989).

They look nice-please forward any information,

Scott- I think I got the wrong wheels, though. They look more like Compmotives in 17" with the removable bolt cover.

Could they be Speedline Mistral wheels? I saw a picture of something similar. THey were an option in Europe, no?

BTW I bought that Mondial t Cab on Ebay with those wheels. A little summer runner for the family.....

Congrats on the Mondial Scott. Looks nice! How much for one of the wheels? HA! I have one I need to replace.

Thanks everyone for the help. It's been quite the Easter egg hunt.

The center section is different for sure as there is a MUCH larger radius in the spoke inset corners on yours compared to the other set. Maybe the same manufacturer but 2 different center options....or similar wheels from different manufactures.

I know I've seen those exact wheels....on a 288 conversion maybe. Fro some reason HRE comes to mind but I don't know why.

Have you popped off a tire and looked inside? Or a good hard look on the back side? There is almost always manufacture's info hiding somewhere, usually on the back somewhere.

I had the tires off and nothing inside or out. I called Ferrari of Tampa and sent them a photo, but nothing yet.

hmmm. No way they are in anyway original or supplied by Ferrari, Ferrari marks EVERYTHING


I'm pretty sure they are compomotive wheels, the newer ones are marked though but maybe the old ones weren't.

Well I've got confirmation from Compomotive and Ferrari. Neither have any idea whose wheels these are. Hard to believe it's such a mystery?

Well....if they have no markings anywhere on them that is on purpose, probably because they are generic Compomotive knock-off and the maker didn't want to be found and sued

......but they do look really nice on the car. You said there is damage to 1 wheel? Your best best might be to try to get it repaired. If it's really damaged perhaps the Compomotive parts MIGHT fit and you'd just need to get it buffed/plated to match? If not I fear you're looking at a new set of wheel.
