The 328 wheels are indeed very nice, subtle, and belong on a Ferrari. However, Unlike Archie, I'm stuck with some less than imaginative factory wheels on my 348. They lack the inspiration necessary to support the clean flow of body lines. I will keep them mounted with Pirelli P-Zero's for originality sake, resale, and show purposes but am very interested in knowing more about the R22 and R55 designs. I might also be interested in the design pictured on the Black Mercedes. Are those the R5's with custom paint? The R77 are attractive but look somewhat weaker in the hub area. Do you have any data regarding wheel flex under lateral Loading and how that compares with say "Asanti" wheels (the other 3 piece I'm considering)? The wheels on my car can't just be pretty.
Hey guys...How do you select a wheel and tire?? Disregarding appearance...what makes one wheel better than another? Come to think of it...thats an idea for a thread.
