Sebastião- I like those wheels on the 599 and they look good on the 612 and 458, too, plus the California.
HGTE/SA Aperta Five Spoke 20”, 5 X 114.3 mm
Front 8.5J X 20 ET 40 mm, Rear 11J X 20 ET 63.8 mm
V Spoke Forged 20”, 5 X 114.3 mm
Front 8J X 20 ET 44 mm, Rear 10J X 20 ET 52.5 mm
As you can see from this, the wheels are only 0.5" wider in front, so not a problem, and 1" wider in the rear. The rear offsets differ by around 0.5", which means the additional width goes half on one side of the hub and half on the other side, so again no problem.
In general, the wheelwells on Ferraris are huge, which allows Novitec and other aftermarket manufacturers to fit wheels even wider than the HGTE wheels.
Cutter- It is impolite to jump in and tell someone you do not like something they do like. You would not do that if you were looking at someone's car in a parking lot, so why do it on this forum? Opinions are fine if solicited, but not always welcome if nobody asks.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
