    Thanks,

    Tony,

    What are you looking for? 18 or 19 inch?

    I agree tifosi69, the car looks amazing with those original 512 TR wheels.

    By the way , do you have a pic of your Ferrari?:)

    I have Kinesis wheels on both my 512TRs, check my profile. The wheels on my black road car are the same as on the silver car except narrower & with black painted centers instead of silver. They weigh at least 25% less than stock

    Hi John,

    This is at the Mansion of the Italian Ambassador to Canada. The Quebec and Ontario chapter of FCA were invited to ottawa during Italian Week 2003. The italian committee of ottawa picked up the tab for entire weekend, hotel, supper, lunch etc. It was unforgetable. Not bad for a community of only 40000 italian-canadians. I'll send you more pics later on.

    I agree with you that the stock rim is correct for the car, compared to the rims on the 360's where I think Ferrari could have done better. But I'm just looking at how I can give the 512tr a more modern look.

    Thanks for your input.

    Yes I am Italian (with a name like Tony, what are the chances) LOL, my parents are both from the old country.
    And yes Italian Week in Ottawa was a BLAST, can't wait to attend this year.

    You should try to get out there, it's only 1 1/2 hour from Laval. They make the Italian festivals in Montreal look small-time. Everyone is very proud of their Italian heritage in that community. Little Italy on Preston street is really italian all the way from restaurants to hardware stores. Not like our little Italy on St. Laurent boul.

    When is this Italian Week in Ottawa? I really wanna see this event!
    Yeah I agree our little Italy isn't 100 % italian. Oh well...There's not much we can do. But when I saw the Enzo last year in June I didn't complained about our little Italy. :D

    Tony,
    Have you ever been to the Ferrari Festival at Mont-Tremblant? I went 2 years in row ...2002 was good with the 360 Challenge race and the historic race , oh and I saw a F50 at the Mont-Tremblant village. What about last year....no 360 Challenge race, not many Ferrari owners came , but we saw the historic race. (cars that were there: 250 GTO, 512 BB LM, 250 TR, 250 LM, 365 GTB/4 Competizione etc..)
    Its on June 25-27 if you are interested.

    Yes I have been there the last two years, we stay at the village condos for the duration of the event.The FCA holds their event each year during the ferrari festival and yes this year the 360 challenge will be held. We will definitely be there this year. Hope to see you there, I will give you ride on the race track during family lapping that is held each day at lunch time.

    I just moved down to Tampa a few months ago, so I don't know much about it... I'm basically in Carrolwood/Town'n'Country. I'm only there every other weekend though, so I'm pretty much clueless about the place :)

    That black TR belonged to a guy in TN at LNS Motorsports. Wish it was mine though......

    my 2 cts....
    if you are going to change from stock (which i personally don't favor), then the other rim that looks great on the tr is the kind they used on the 512m.

    I'd keep them stock. JMO Unless the aftermarket one's were lighter... possible, but I somehow doubt.

    Awesome car though and good luck on your decision for wheels. :)
