Hi guys, I am a new member and as all new Ferrari owners am quite worried due to my lack of experience regarding fitting a set of aftermarket rims let alone tyres that are supposed to match.
I grossly underestimated the variables when it comes to doing this. After talking directly to a number of dealers on the net for BBS, Speedline, HRE & OZ rims all I seem to have achieved is more confusion as most bait you to enter in your car Make, model & year throw up a set of rim options supposedly suited to your car details then they contradict themselves by telling me via email that the models I picked based on their search engine criteria cannot be fitted to my car.
All I want is to fit some decent 19's like fellow members in this post have done but do not know much at all regarding other modifications like offset & other structural modifications that must or must not be done to the vehicle like suspension or axel work?
Is there such a thing as buying a set of 19's that are 8.5x19 & 10x19 (trying to keep width same as OEM 17's) that can be fitted to your car direct from the store? How much can I vary out of the standard rim width's as I have read it is not wise to do so affecting ride ability? (tyre & rim calculators)
I really like the Novitec model & the Kahn model displayed, will do more research.
I defer my judgment to experienced Ferrari owners like yourselves, especially 456 owners.
Thus I would appreciate your feedback when you are so inclined to respond. Thanks guys.
