+1 Thanks, Terry.

I had a brief "oh crap" moment when I opened the thread. I won an auction for some goodies off of ebay last night and didn't double check the bolt pattern. I was 95% sure that the 430 was the last 108mm V8... there was that brief moment though when I was thinking, "wow, I really should have checked this."

Hopefully they'll show up in one piece. If/when they do, I'll throw some pics in my 308 rebuild thread.

Bret- You got it right and they should fit fine. I talked to Paul Hill at Hill Engineeering and he said making adapters to fit the late model 114.3 mm wheels to the 108 mm hubs could be done, but he would not guarantee the results. To me that says we should all stick to our OEM bolt diameters, like you did.

I really enjoyed my 78 Euro 308 GTS 25125 and would love to see some photos of yours.

Agreed on sticking to 108mm. I bought a set of 360 wheels a few months ago. Any idea if Ferrari stuck to the same diameter lug bolt all through the years? I doubt they kept the 22mm head, but did the bolt itself stay consistent? I'm not even sure what it is off hand... 12x1.5mm?

A few threads down here in the Tech Talk forum and you'll find my rebuild thread. It's endless. Literally. I'm spending the summer renovating the apartment that my wife and I are moving into and building a garage (my family owns the property). So, the 308 has gone into automotive hibernation once again. I'll finish the wiring harness whenever I can get back working on it - hopefully this Fall.

You might have seen over on FChat that I'm occasionally perusing/dreaming of buying a 550. Someday I'll get there. I wont sell the 308, so it'll take some time to get to a point where I can have both. Then at least hopefully one will be running at any given time.

Bret- There are some length differences, but the bolt size has remained pretty constant, I think. The best person to ask is Daniel at Ricambi, who supplies wheel stud bolts to a bunch of people.

I have my eye on some of the Hill Engineering titanium bolts Daniel sells, but cannot swing a set right now. ~$1K, way less than Ferrari bolts.

I have a bolt length cheat sheet -- I'll try to post it.

From F355 and onwards, they are almost all 52mm bolts (measured from the end of the bolt to the start of the conical head). Prior the F355, it was all over the map.

Daniel- That would be helpful, thanks. Still drooling over the titanium bolts.
