    Full disclosure, I generally don't like most of the wheel swaps. Those are not bad but I think those would be better on a 612. No idea who makes them. Did you try to crop them out and do a photo search? That might work.

    Photo search and it looks like a Marcellino wheel. They make them for MBZ but maybe others; I didn't read their site that much.

    Personally, I like the GTO wheels on GTBs.

    I like the early HGTE wheels with the thinner spokes as well.

    I didnt even know there was such a thing as photo search to find a manufacturer !
    Just checked their site. Thanks
    No Ferrari offerings.
    Those look heavy anyhow.

    The Aperta wheels look good too. (or is it just great photography ?)
    From what I'm told they are the same as an FF wheel which also fits a GTB.[​IMG]

    It is definitely a Khan Design from UK and I agree with @Skidkid for not changing wheels excepted GTO's

    Am I the only person that likes polished monolithics?

    Nope. I really don't like black wheels at all; I NEVER understood that fad. The dark grey is ok but I like the stock silver. Ball polished can be good but they are too much bling for the 599 & 612.

    Yeah I am not a fan of black wheels either. It seems that with black the wheels, they just seems to go away and be unnoticeable, see post#12. Unless that is the look you are looking for and don't really want to see the detail of the wheel.

    No George you are not.I think my 599 in Blue Pozzi looks the business with the polished wheels. Mike
