F512 M Wheels on 550 Maranello
Does anyone have an opinion or experience on the possibility of fitting F512M wheels on my 550 Maranello? They are the most beautiful of all Ferrari wheels, IMO....The bolt pattern is the same, the diameter is the same at 18'' and the differing offsets seem to be able to be resolved with spacers.....
But I am a new guy here, and really need some help from the veterans on the site, before I step on my dick....
My main concern is this: the rear 512M wheels are the same width as the 550 wheels, at 10 1/2''
BUT the front 512M wheels are 8'' wide, as opposed to 8 1/2'' for the 550.
Would this small 1/2'' difference in width at the front wheels be a major issue for the handling or performance of the Maranello? I do nothing but Sunday drives and car shows, no tracking or insane speeds....
Here are the two sets of specs, for you tech guys to ponder:
550 Maranello....Front 8 1/2 J x 18ET 43.65 mm offset
Rear 10 1/2 x 18ET 32 mm offset
F512M Front 8 J x 18ET 46mm offset
Rear 10 1/2 J x 18ET 81.75 mm offset
Maybe the contact patch on the front would be pretty much the same with a proper front tire selection?
Thanks for any help from out there!!
