    Decided to put scud wheels and titanium lug nuts on my F430. Instead of putting stock yellow ferrari center caps, I went with original titanium ones available at the ferrari parts counter. Also, upgraded to brembo six piston calipers and changed all four stock rotors to the floating ones. The car has of ton carbon fiber including rear diffuser, engine vents and front splitter. I kept the stock exhaust, just had the tips powdercoated black. The mirrors are original scuderia ones as well.

    Very tastefully done! Congrats!
    Did you install the 225 or the 235 tires with the Scuderia Wheels?

    Personally, I like Challenge but I'm partial because I have them. But, these Scud wheels definately make the car look "tougher" and a bit meaner. I do like them.

    The Challenge Wheels are without a doubt very nice on the F430 but it always reminds me of the Challenge Stradale when I look at them. I believe the Scud wheels would be more appropriate on a F430 for its generation...more relevant because of the Scuderia/16M.

    Just wondering if the Challenge Wheels titanium lug nuts will fit the SCUD Wheels?

    because I notice on SCUD or 16M the Lug nuts are smaller or i should say "thinner", just to reduce weight....

    Like the newer Scud wheels also however, the Challenge style wheel would actually be more 'appropriate' as it was a factory option for the 430.
