Scud + BBS = WIN!

Was able to scoop up the last set of these currently in the U.S. I actually like the oem Scud wheel design, but the offsets are horrid! This is how Ferrari should offset wheels on all their line i.m.o.

Oem


Money shot!

Looks great!

I thought the Scud came with 19 & 20's - assume you had the 19's?

Mind elaborating on the offset and how it was corrected.

Incredible look. Please elaborate on wheel/tire size and offset.

Wheels are still 19" with fronts being 19x8.75 +18, and rears at 19x11.25 +23.
Even with these wheels being wider than oem, there is still nearly 31 lbs in weight savings!
With these offsets, the wheels sit more flush to the fenders and give a wider stance.

I went with Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 245/35/19 - 295/35/19.
I checked with many wheel experts, and the consensus was these were the best sized tires for these wheels. I will add pics to the original post to better show offsets.

It looks like you were able to keep the original Titanium bolts.
Is that correct?

Yes, being able to keep oem bolts and center caps was a big plus for me.

Congrats, great looking car.

The side wall on the rear's seem much bigger than OEM setup although the increase in height was minimal.

Good eye! I noticed that immediately myself when I first saw the tires alone. It actually looks better in person, very aggressive looking somehow.

The sidewall caught my eye- thats why I asked about the tires. I love that look.....

And the offsets work better?

How so to a less mechancially inclined tifosi?

To me they are visually much better! Instead of the wheels being sunken into the fenders, the offsets make the wheel more flush to them.

These offsets can also help aid in handling by pushing the track out further to the corners (widening the stance). I do not track my car personally, so I'll let someone else feel free with experience that can explain this much better than myself.

Your feedback on handling after the shift is greatly appreciated.

Those are sweet. BBS still makes my favorite wheels. 31 lbs in weight savings is also a nice plus for your unsprung weight. As Mo said, any noticeable difference when you hammer it?

Thank you. Unfortunately I have not been able to drive the car much at all since having them put on. There's clearly got to be some advantage here, just not sure I will personally be able to notice it.
