New Guy Here

Hello all, Keith here with a short shout out to you that will listen, that after an almost 1 month wait I received my 2004 Ferrari 360 Spider. I've owned many a sports car over the years, my last was a Porsche 996TT or Twin Turbo.

Currently trying to close some smog testing issues.

Attached is the car in the dealers showroom.

2004 Ferrari 360 Spider F1
13,XXX miles
Challenge wheels 19"
Challenge front grills
Exterior: Rossa Corsa
Interior: Cuoio Natural Leather

You'll have no problem fitting these 19" wheels to a 360.

Keith, huge congrats on your new toy, now go get some miles in her & once your dance is familiar drive her like you stole her. Stay safe!

PS. Ferrari Tan is called Cuoio

I have 19" HRE wheels on my 360 coupe, no rubbing. HRE wheels:

Front wheels: 8.5X19, offset is 39mm, 235/35/19

Rear wheels: 11X19, offset is 25mm, 305/30/19

Not sure if there's a difference with wheel size between the coupe or spider.

Nice car and welcome to FLife!

Keith- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Very pretty Spider. Your interior color is cuoio, a natural/saddle color that makes for a very pretty interior. My favorite interior color.


The 19" Challenge wheels fit with no mods and no rubbing unless you put on larger than OEM CS/F430 front tires. No difference in wheels or wheel wells between Modenas and Spiders. F430s came with rolled front fenders, so even more space there.

New Guy Here

That's right, tease the new guy. Can't we just break him in gradually?

I didn't know how to pronounce it either and I just said "baseball glove" but you cricket guys wouldn't understand.

Al, just say Kwoi and the oi is pronounced as in Oi you!

Btw cricket is a mind numbing English played game, you're in the wrong Country!

Hello Keith,

Congratulations on your 1st Ferrari! I like the wheels and 360's bubble head light lenses. The colour combination is classic Ferrari and spiders are always have that sexy appearance with the top down.

Wishing you many miles of twisting-turning-up-down safe driving.

Regards,
