    My rear rims are quite different from the front ones. These rims do not have the Ferrari markings, and do seem heavier, see pic of the inside of the rims side by side (ferrari rim on the front, no-name on the background) .

    Any idea who made these rims and how to source them?

    Ive seen what I call continuation wheels from Ferrari most likely to support over the counter replacement parts. Ive seen them on boxers and 308's. I bought a pair of 8" 308 QV wheels like this, correct offset, correct outer lip etc - not repop wheels. They had date codes on them putting them in the late 80's.

    I have run into the same with my 308.

    There were multiple manufacturers supplying Ferrari and each has it's casting with subtle variances, by year mainly.
    I ended up with a set of 16" QVs with a left side pair by one vendor and a right side pair by a second!!

    All Factory tho...

    I presume my car was later retrofitted with TRX, so they probably took whatever they had. Thanks for the rapid feedback.

    Or damaged in use.....but yes it's the age of the pieces now and all the swapping of fitment going on....

    You should be able to buy the Ferrari 390mm pretty cheaply, I have seen them given away....

    His car would look funny with 390's on one side and 415's on the other.

    Hah! 390s up front! 415s on the back!

    Add sidepipes and flames and you're set. :)
