Forgiato wheels on a Ferrari

What do you guys think of these Forgiato wheels on Ferraris. I have 20" and 22" Martellato wheels on the F360 Spider. After seeing them on I think its hard to ever settle for factory wheels again.

Completes the package?

or

Looks good but I could live with out them?

599 with 22" Magila Forgiato wheels

Well I do agree that 599 looks the best with the Maglia wheels. Its the multi-spoke look it just looks sportier.

Here's some more pics of that 599 with the Magila wheels

If I'm to be honest, I think I'd prefer the factory wheels on all of the pics shown. as Wetpet said, to each his own...

That 599 looks great. Don't like any of the other ones though.

The 599 ones are really smooth and the ones on the black 430 are nice too but the above ones I think look terrible because of the sheriff look, those round shapes at the top of each spoke.....totally not for me.

I would have to agree with the majority. The 599 looks great with those rims but the others are just a little over the top for me, but I digress to each his own.

I have a feeling nobody's liking the Martellato's. Might be that star shape. I happen to love it but.. Heres some with Vizzos, Estremo, and Grano Forgiato's. The Vizzo's look great cause it has that split spoke adds to that sportiness of it.

I can already tell from some of the replies that not many people are going to like the red 430 with the red Grano wheels but... its different and definitely a looker.

I like them, but not the colored/toned to car look. black, brushed metal are ok.

Like the first and third. Just can't quite warm to black or red alloys. Maybe I'm just too conservative....

Haha true. So many Ferrari's and other exotic cars roaming the streets of South Florida, you need wheels to make it your own or stand out.

I don't don't understand why people change their wheels on their ferraris period, why mess with perfection?

Cheers

No such thing as perfection, but Ferrari’s are damn close…..hehehehehe!!!!!!!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I absolutely love 5 spoke wheels, but when too thick it looks weird and fake, like a Hot Wheels. Maybe this is because the rim size is bigger and it amplifies the size of the spokes.

In my opinion (and I could be wrong),

1st – The holes in the middle of each spokes to me need to be complete from one end to another and not “just a hole”. The spokes are too thick for me.

2nd – spokes are too thick but love the black….looks badass!!!

3rd – Again, the spokes are too thick and the rear wheel diameter is too big….looks funny but the rim is very nice.

4th – Too pimp, matching car color is not my thing and seeing the caliper and disk is cool. I find this takes away the look of performance.

But like I said….only my opinion.

The 599 is the only one that looks right with them. All the others look a bit too gold chain and chest hairy too me.

Every single one of these wheels looks like Venice, CA, not Venice Italy.

Not all of us in CA have gold chains!!

As a matter of fact even Mr.T no longer wears them! My son ran into him in LA` recently at a supermarket!

These wheels are pretty bad!
