    Hi, I´m writing from Spain, I´m going to buy 16" wheels form my 1978 308 GTS, now I have the 14" with Michelin XWX, since I can´t find the original ones I´m planing to order the aluminum replica from Superformance, but I don´t know wich color to choose and I would like to know your opinions and if any of you have the gold ones I will really apreciate if you can send me or post a picture to see how they look in the car.

    Personally, I love the look of the gold wheels. Some fchat members have put them on and they completely changed my opinion of them. They are not original, but for some reason they look just right.

    The gold tone color look good on certain car colors such as red and blue and pictures have been posted here before. I don't think they would be very appealing on black, white, silver, yellow or brown.

    I agree with you. there is the blue QV GTB on ebay, that car looks great with the gold wheels. I am not sure about other color cars, how they would look. Cant imagine they would look good against silver or yellow

    My profile has a photo of my '77 with gold/bronze wheels. I'd re-post it, but don't know how... They are, in fact, the Superformance repros too. However, they are NOT the gold as sent from Superformance. I wanted to match the bronze color that Ferrari used to use on all their old race cars, so had the wheels stripped and powder coated...

    Gold makes the rims look constantly "dirty". I'd go for silver. Did any of them come in gold from the factory? Also there are no yellow or gold piece on the car. What would they match?

    Even though I'm not one to worry too much about originality I would stay with whatever color came with your car. I just ordered replacement wheels from Superformance and stuck with the original silver.

    Those bronze wheels look great! IMO, much better than the gold....Would love to see how they would look on my Black 308.

    I don´t know what to do, I like everything original but since I can´t find the original wheels and I allready have the original 14", I was thinking to buy the 70´s sport gold wheels look. Does anybody else have pictures with gold wheels?
