    Will they fit a non ABS 328?

    Personally, I wouldn't go larger than 17" on a 308/328, but that's just me....

    Aren't they a little wide? If I could make them work with just spacers or minor inner fender mod's I'd be interested.

    Have the QA1's and Eibach springs which I think facilitates slightly larger wheels.

    Thinking about ordering a set of Bogart RR10's . . . approximately 2K and they're lightweight.

    These wheels look top of the heap.
    Especially the open star centered modular type.
    These are seriously my taste.
    In case you buy them, please keep me informed.

    Will do. .. can anyone confirm the size of rim you can run with QA1 setup?

    Going wider than 7's on the front reduce steering travel? . .. Have 16' repro's right now . . 7's on front and 8's on back from memory yes? No steering issues.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    Without flares ot suspsension mount mods about 8-8.5" in front and 9-9.5 in the rear. I have 8.5 in front and 10.5 in the rear, but had to move the lower shock mounts in the rear.

    These wheels would be nice with GTO fenders

    Auction says that size is TR fitment and that sounds right.

    Greg328 is correct that's about +4" over our early OEM, it'd make it look like 4WD!

    Thanks . . . not to hi jack . . . but like to see how you moved your shock mount . . . probably a thread already? Think I'd like that much rubber in the back and the additional in front.

    Do you get any rubbing on the fronts at full lock when parking? I know there's issues over bumps with heavy lock even with stock size tires . . .. peeled my fender lip one day. Really messed it up.

    18's actually lok pretty good....at least to me. You have to lower the car a big though to make the low profile tires look right in the wheel well.

    I think I posted them on the old f-chat, so they were lost in the crash. I'll see if I can dig them up when I get home.

    Probably have to make new lug bolts, unless the angle of the stock bolt is the same as a standard lug nut . .. anyone? If it is I'll be sure to give them the critical dim's so we can re-use the stock bolts . .. maybe I'll contact them with the stock bolt dim's and see if they can make them work if different.

    Thanks

    edit: vague on the "standard" lug nut because that's what they refer to it on their website

    OEM Ferrari bolts are conical on the bottom of the hex, ala centering lug nuts, no idea if that's what they mean.....

    AFAIK these bolts are treaded with a common Euro tread and the conical section is nothing unusual. This would bother me the least.
