In my opinion, the OEM wheels look much better than any of those wheels.

wheels

the stock wheels are the only way to go,i myself love all the factory Ferrari wheels.somehow,changing Ferrari factory wheels doesnt make sense to me,unless of course your going with other Ferrari wheels that you like better than the ones your Ferrari comes with. Brett

Thanks for your advice..... I think I'll keep the original wheels and paint them satin black.

When you decide to repaint them back to silver (I hope), the paint you need is PPG 36520, Argento Metallic.

Sounds good. I like them polished the best on 512tr's. Don't get me wrong, I love aftermarket wheels but I don't care for those pictured (or photoshopped).

Wrong way Corrigan comes to mind.


Better find your way fast. I have it on good authority that thing only goes 90 minutes on a tank of gas.



Good picture though. I have one kind of like it right above my desk.

In my opinion anything bigger than 17 inch wheels on a TR makes it look like a HotWheels car. They are out of proportion.

Also the dark colors make it look like it has 2 big holes in each side and chrome or polished look too South Beach.


But, you know what they say. If you like it and I don't, we're both right.

In general I agree Brian. However, Al has a very understated set of chromed wheels on his TR. Once I saw them in person, I thought they looked nice. They almost convinced me to chrome my Spider's wheels. Almost....

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

Some ex Navy pilot from Fla that likes old recips. Thats his Junkstang back of us. He let us use his 51 prop when we were having the eng problems a few years ago. Had a good showing of planes and F cars at the Nut Tree Oct. You missed your ride. Perhaps this winter....big puffy clowds and its cool inside the howling little monster.

I guess if he has an F4U and a P51 he found a better paying job after the Navy.

I was going to come up in the Lambo and sneak into the Ferrari display but it didn't happen.

Looks like Sparky has even more advertising on it. Hope you get paid by the square inch.
