    Before we start on "how do you install 360 wheels on my 348?"?

    I direct your questions to Paul Hill, our site sponsor.

    Side note, dang it, I am not a moderator here and can't edit thread titles...(stupid space between 348 and tb...) Vote for Auraraptor to be classic forum moderator! :)

    I like them alot! I am suprised because I usually don't think that switching models works but in this case, I think they compliment each other nicely.

    I gotta say, I like it. I am suprised I like it though, I usually don't like later model wheels on the 348, but these work nicely.

    Good job!

    Usually, I like the Ferraris to be completley original looking, but threre are some exeptions, like this one! I think it makes that 348 (an already agressive car) look more agressive!

    Consider me a vote for "yes" as the attached picture shows - my money is where my vote is. Just thought I would add a "spider" view as well.

    Of course I have the factory wheels for making a quick change to original if needed.

    I like 'em. To me, the biggest problem with the 348 wheels (in addition to their weight) is that they block so much of the rotor. It's not about cooling or anything -- I think it's just a more aggressive look when you can see the rotors.

    I think it looks much better than the standard wheels. The offset on the rears looks correct, while the rear fenders seem to hang over the standard wheels. Stock is best, but these are still OEM and can be removed.

    I'd still like to know if there is any modification needed to make them fit, or do they bolt right on?

    looks great, I think all you need are the wheel spacers and lug nuts to put them on.

    not the best view but i believe those are the HRE 547's, a very popular wheel.

    nice. I always wondered how the 360 wheels would look on a 348. The stock 348 wheels suck.

    I like the way the 360 wheels look, and the HRE's. I'm not a big fan of the original 348 wheels...I think they are bulky as well. My favorite look is the flush five star type of look. Does anyone have any other suggestions as far as wheels go on a 348? I do like the speedlines with the bolts around them as well, I think they are one of the best wheels i have ever seen on a 348. What else do you need to switch to 355 or 360 wheels...spacers..bolts...does anyone know the exact spacer size or where to get them...exact bolt size as well?

    Same size as the 348 originals? Or do you find yourself buying a new set of tires also? Are they bolt-on's or were spacers and other such parts needed? I think the look is 10X better than stock, and still tasteful.

    348's are 17" wheels, stock 360's are 18" wheels, so new tires are automatically required.

    Personally I think the 355 wheels look better on the 348 than the 360's. Also the competizione wheels for the 348/512TR look really good, and based on my research I think you can run the non-modular 512TR wheels as well.

    I don't care for the stock 348 wheels and the car does look more modern with 18" wheels.

    Cheers

    Very nice. I'm a huge fan of the 5 stars wheel pattern with silver finish on ferraris. 360 wheels are sweet and will look good on any 80's Ferraris.

    Nice car , good choice.

    Planning on 360 wheels on my TR when I get one.

    I put 360 Wheels on my 92 348TB and used OEM bolts. No Problems.

    strange, I took my 348 to the mechanic's the other day and the 360 wheels didnt fit because the bolts were to long.

    Or is something wrong.
