    Hello all-

    After reading every post of every thread on 458 wheel fitment, I think I’m more confused and concerned than when I started.

    I want to replace the wheels on my 458 coupe with Modulars b31 wheels that look much like pista wheels. I am generally a purist but absolutely hate my 458 wheels.

    that said, I will absolutely not run 21-22 setup like so many of these wheel companies recommend. I’m fine with running 20,21 but am concerned about both overall diameter, width, and offset.

    a part of me just wants them to make me stock width and offset wheels in that style and just replace them straight up in an effort to avoid ABS or stability control issues I’ve been reading about. I really just like the look of a wider wheel that’s a little closer to flush fitment. I think at this point I’ve decided

    front - 9x20 - 255/35/20
    Rear - 11x21 - 315/30/21

    Any ideas on offset? Anybody think this will be too far out of spec to stock? I’ll lower the car on stock springs as necessary after the wheels are on to dial ride height in.

    Really appreciate any input on this. Photo is just for reference so you can see the wheel. That’s 21,22 and not something I want to do.

    That seems pretty aggressive. I am running 20/21 on my 458 and they sit flush to the body and my car has been lowered on stock springs. I am running 235/35/20 in the front and 295/30/21 in the rear. Compared to what you suggested, looks like there some differences.

    That’s sitting nicely. What wheel width are you running in front and rear?

    Sorry didn’t load on mobile. So you’re running 9x20 11x21 with minimal difference in overall diameter. Any issues with ABS or stability control? It looks to be sitting pretty flush from the side. Any pics from the rear or front?

    I think if you do what I did, you will be golden, but to each his own...

    I appreciate it but think I’m going with lightweight HRE’s. I asked them to prepare me a more modest offset. Anybody here willing to chime in? This is what they came back with:


    Fronts – 20x9 et34
    Rears – 21x11 et38

    Tire sizes are 245/35-20, 305/30-21.
