    To me they look quite similar to the Challenge wheels. I like them.

    Here are some similar rims made by BBS. Not sure if these are the 2005 MY or not. Some Japanese manufacturers change wheels styles every year.

    These are BBS LM's - the ones on the 360 are one-piece and different.

    Cheers

    I'm 99% sure BBS are German.

    As Gary said, the ones in the picture above are the 18" Challenge wheels. Pressure cast, not forged. The forged RE is similar looking, but different. Not sure if there are Ferrari applications in the RE line.

    It's a German company with manufacturing facilities in Japan as well.

    I believe they are the Challenge wheels. And it appears they have the BBS logo on them as well.

    I believe BBS are exclusively contracted by ferrari to make the challenge wheels. Which means they can't be bought from anyone except from an authorized dealer and then you would have to have cs with a damaged or stolen wheel that needs replacement. However, BBS also manufactures a similar style wheel which is considerably cheaper ( and of lesser quality)and of course readily available. Last time I checked, the ferrari center cap won't fit though.

    Interesting rear spoiler and front lip. I really like the clean rear lines of the 360 but that spoiler somehow doesn't interrupt the flow. I don't like the indentation in the 360 front bumper but never saw a lip that improved the look except for on the 430. Does anyone know of front lips that aren't imola or novitech?

    Yep. Those are definitely the Challenge Rims with the BBS red script in the centre.

    BBS Japan makes BBS Rims for the Japanese Domestic Market ( JDM ) cars with their 114.3/100 Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD) or bolt pattern. There are some BBS models that you don't see anywhere else!!
