New 20" wheels for F430 Spider
I wanted to change my standard wheels for a set of 20" for a while now.
After lots of research and thinking I decided to go with a set of 20 inch corr, F1 encor wheels in piano black.
Once the wheels arrived, I was faced with 2 problems.
1. I wasn't told that I would need special wheel bolts for these wheels, as the standard bolts were way too long and the wheels were still lose after the bolts were tight, and also the 21mm ferrari bolts are too thick to fit in the new wheels.
This is where Hill Engineering came to the rescue and they are manufacturing a set of new wheel bolts to my specification as we speak.
2. as you can see the 235/30/20 pirelli nero at front and 305/25/20 at rear, their side wall is far too low so I don't think there will be much protection from bumps in the road.
I have now ordered a set of 245/30 20 for the front and 305/30/20 for the rear and that should hopefully give me a bit more cushion and at the same time not to rub inside the wheel arch.
