I am interested in installing a set of stock 19" F430 wheels on my '03 360 Spider. Does anyone know of any problems or issues I should know about before I do this? See attached photo of F430 wheel.

Thank you.

The CS and the 430 19 inch wheels have been developing quite a reputation for bending from pretty run of the mill pothole encounters. It is common enough that many of the dealers keep those expensive wheels in stock. One of my clients destroyed one, it did not take much and the wheel was cracked bad enough it is now a very expensive hose reel in his garage. With that little sidewall there is just not enough give in the tire to absorb every day encounters.

And that does not even take into account the ride degradation you will experience if that matters.
