    Taz? Terry?,
    Thanks for checking. Yes, I have the OEM 18" wheels. And this is the first time I'm faced with changing tires on any high performance machine so I don't know squat.

    Appreciate your input,

    Doug- Let me check. I thought the P Zero Rossos were still available, but would actually rather have PS2s or the new Super Sports. Will check sizes. Assume you still have the OEM 18" wheels?

    I was told you are something of a tire expert. Well, here goes:
    I'm looking to replace my tires and the original Michelins are no longer made.

    The Pirelli P Zero Nero are available and are a-symetrical all around. This differs from Ferrari's original offering of the P Zero "System" which is symetrical fronts, a-symetrical rears.

    Not sure if this is a good idea or bad. Another possibility is the new Michelin Pilot Sport 2's. But, these are 3/4" wider than the original and I'm afraid they will rub on the fenders (which are already bent from the original Pilot Sports.

    Any advice?

    Thanks very much in advance,

    Kevin- I have no access to any Ferrari official sources, but if you call the service manager at FOA, I am sure they can provide the records and also possibly a copy of the window sticker. Your dealeship in FL should also be able to print a build sheet for you.

    Glad you found the car you were seeking.

    Hi Terry, I just purchased this 01' 550m 123562 and am trying to reconstruct all the service records for my files. For example I see it was purchased at Ferrari of Atlanta and appears to had lots of love there and at FCI - I have all the computer generated service history from FCI but nothing from Atl. I plan on putting it up on a lift at FMFL when it gets here in a week and going through it carefully - for instance I can see the motormounts were changed but I cant tell when and what mounts went in - 575 or 550. that sort of thing..

    not sure what you have access to & how much trouble it is so please let me know if I am out of line asking. I live in a Ferrari world & have been privlileged to drive many cars on & off the track - but this is my first Fcar having been a die hard Porsche guy for years.

    Happy New Year!

    regards,

    Kevin
