    That is a great question, I bought these HRE’s used and am not sure. I’ll see if I can figure it out. I did help another owner here order some and we did figure out a pretty good fit.

    I will say the 325 is not even as wide as the wheel!

    Love that site.

    rear looks close. Front is a 265/35-19 but the offsets look pretty close. I’ll look some stuff up tomorrow.

    I should add, IMHO, the optimal offset/ size spec is front 9in ET 32-38 range, rear 11.5in ET 17-22 range. If you want to run a 13 inch rear (yes it fits) the offset would be et28.
    I would not go lower then et 28 front or et10 rear

    Here is what @Depreciating Asset did. A few of us had a private conversation about this and the pics are what he ended up with. Hopefully he will see this and jump in.

    Front Wheels

    20" X 9.5" ET 41mm
    275/30 ZR20 MPS4S (diameter is within 1.5% of stock tire diameter)

    The Math:
    9.5 X 25.4 = 241.3 Wheel width in mm
    241.3 / 2 = 120.65 Center of Barrel
    120.65 - 41 = 79.3 Distance from hub to outer edge.
    241.3 - 79.3 = 162 Distance from hub to inner edge
    ***Inner edge of the wheel is approximately 10mm (.4”) further inside than the stock wheel with no spacer.

    Rear Wheels

    20" X 12" ET 26
    325/25 ZR20 MPS4S (diameter is within <1% of stock tire diameter)

    The Math:
    12 X 25.4 = 304.8 wheel width in mm
    304.8 / 2 = 152.4 Center of barrel
    152.4 - 26 = 126.4 Distance from hub to outer edge
    304.8 - 126.4 = 178.4 Distance from hub to inner edge

    He has a GREAT source for these wheels too. He had them made to look like modulars.

    That is not a bad price for real CF overlay and billet center!

    It's the same company that did my tesla wheels, I worked with them to get the load rating up to 950kg - it did increase the weight of the wheels, 13.9kg (20x10) in front 14.5kg (20x11) in the rear

    I don't think I'll need that high of a load rating for this car

    Otherwise it drives poorly IMHO. If aesthetics are the goal, there was a member who had custom ultrawide HRE front/rear who would be great source. He had quite impressive offsets and filament.

    Cool beans, I just got a reply back from Fabio about doing the h pipe and the rear straight pipes in titanium or inconel, the headers/manifolds I'll keep stainless steel and get them cerakoted. I think I'll take off the capristo valve less rear muffler boxes, and also keep it in the vacuum sealed bag

    The “experience” is never made worse by wider wheels/tires as long as they fit! In fact ours is much better now as it actually has way more grip and also looks better!

    I do agree that having a fitment that requires changes to alignment or ride height to work will and does lessen the handling and experience. however, just getting a great fitment will have no drawbacks.

    but I owned a race/custom shop for 15 years so I am biased. I always get as much tire as I can under a car and at the same time build the right look. Nobody in our family has ever kept stock wheels on any car we have owned for 30+ years!

    That will sound amazing! Great call on coating the headers! Where are you located? I have a great place to coat them in SoCal if you can ship. Reach out to embee performance. They did all of our header coating for the production pieces we made as well as a ton of work for cp pistons and others in the industry.

    Don't get the OP's question. Converting a Maranello to EV makes ZERO sense. Seriously...why???

    I have Novitecs on my 550 now. 12.5" x 19" on the rear (with 25mm Hill spacers). I recall the tire size may be 345/30R-19 (Michelin Pilots) - tbd.

    Seems to me that a set of 25mm or 30mm rear wheel spacers would go a long way towards filling out the wheel openings on your 575. You might be pleasantly surprised just how much that improves the look. Other than that, and as a few others have also suggested, perhaps get to know the car before making all these mods right out of the gate. My two cents...

    Back in 1999 I made the first set of 30mm tug approved spacers (using our car as the template). It’s when I had my shop. We had H&R make them for us and that is how we had TUV. I agree that they are perfect. 25 is too little for stock wheels imho.

    But when making custom wheels, no need for spacers as you can just build the wheel with the right offset!

    btw, the novitecs look great. We were a dealer for them back in the day and put those on a few 430’s (even did a couple twin screw upgrades, one for a celebrity that I drove daily for 3 months at his request). Fun days being in the biz back then.
