Yes, good point - unless you seek originality, I would want a car that already had 16" rims.4kids3fish said:One thing that may need researching is what wheel / tyre combo is fitted. I don't have the details handy but some mid 80's Ferraris came fitted with Michellin's "new technology" TRX rims & tyres. They use a unique tyre mounting on the rim, and so cannot accept any other tyre (that I know of).
Unfortunately, the TRX concept didn't fly, and the TRX tyre has not been further developed with time. This severely limits what new tyres can now be fitted (ie, only TRX ones :ugh: ) unless you replace the rims with a conventional set of 16" wheels => very expensive, so check it out first.
I don't care about concourse, but I would try to get the original rims for resale value. And if the car did not have original rims I would try and negotiate price (even though I could care less about the original rims if I like the ones on the car, saves me the money and hassle of buying new rims).4kids3fish said:try to also get the original wheels/tyres for concourse (I mean there's not much anyone else can do with them anyway)
