    No. They were on the 275 GTB/C Competition cars with 15" size and the rear wheels were inner lace. Road cars were 14".

    The spokes are attached/positioned on the rim nearer the inner edge and outer lace means the spokes are attached/positioned towards the outer edge of the rim, both as opposed to more centrally attached/positioned spokes inside the rim.

    Outside lace wheels were fitted to the front of competition cars--250 LM, P cars, 275 GTB/C. Not sure what the reasoning was--off-set, different stresses on the turning wheels vs. driven wheels? Can Dyke or anybody chime in?

    375: The thought at the time was the outside lacing provided better support under cornering and less flexing as the car was turned in to the corner. I am not sure it actually did help, and by then the tires were getting "sticky" enough that the wire wheel's use in competition was about over.

    By then, the first light alloy wheels started to become available. They weren't as "classic" but they did everything else better.

    If it were me....I'd at least reverse the order. Cavalino on the rear "transom" and script on the decklid. Just me, though.
