    Ok - I think I'm about ready to buy a spare set of wheels for my CS just to have an option to change the look of the car every once in awhile. FWIW, my car is Scureria, Red calipers, and a Stripe (Thank you Richard)

    I have three options. 1) Ball polished 2) De-glossed Black 3) Dark Gray - The same color metalic Gray as the spare wheel.

    Ball polished *might* have too much bling but would look great. Black will show off the red calipers and look down right mean, and Gray would be a color that exists on the car already.

    Opinions?

    TIA,

    Stu

    Great looking car with the red calipers behind the black wheels. Not a fan of black wheels but that looks sharp. Are they the Pilot Sport 2's on in the picture? How did they work out?

    Drew's wheels are Grigio Silverstone that are de-glossed and look fantastic. Does anyone have a picture of any version red 360 - with GS painted wheels??

    Thanks for the compliment. I think when that pic was taken it had corsa's on it. I have the PS2's on it now, couldn't wait for the Pirelli's any longer. They're not as responsive as the Corsa, but they worked out fine. I'm happy with them.

    Anything but ball polished. Ball polished does NOTHING for a red Ferrari IMO. The CS need to remain either stock or have a sinister look to it (like the on pictured above).

    Black might be the one that can differentiate yours from others!

    Ok - if I go Black, do I go gloss black, or go will a slightly de-glossed Black? I don't think I can do Matt Black; it just never seems to look clean to me...

    Ball polished is STUNNING in person... Grey would also look great on a Rosso Scuderia car... Personally I hate black wheels, it's overdone, and looks like an old steel wheel that's missing a hubcap.

    i'd skip the ball polish unless it involved a pretty 20 something.
