    Does anyone know the best place to get hold of a 308 wheel - new or used, it's for the spare!

    It's going on my euro 308GTBi, so needs to be a metric TRX wheel.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    I need a set of TRX wheels for the 308 QV I just bought to take it back to the original spec. If you still know where I might find some, I'm all ears.

    Post is very very old - they still stock them new but at about £ 500 each ! https://www.ferrariparts.co.uk/part/search?SearchText=117000

    And then its about four hundred quid a tyre from Longstone

    You've been told this before but 16 in was an option on that car and a far cheaper solution (using the replica wheels)

    I am struggling with a choice.

    With the BBS wheels shown that a previous owner has installed, it was immediately obvious to me before buying that car that I was going to go back to the original 5 spoke design.

    I have 3 options:

    - The original TRX wheels and tyres. The most expensive option. And the hardest to get. TRX wheels are rare. But being aluminum, old imperfect ones can be repaired. At a cost. And the tyres are 5x the 16" option. An upside is matching the original TRX spare and the (unlikely) flat rear tyre will fit in the spare location.

    - Original Ferrari 16" rims. Also expensive and rare. Being magnesium, they cannot be repaired. I would be lucky to find a set. If perfect, probably more than TRX's. But tyres are cheap. Downside? Not the original equipment matching the spare and a rear flat (Unlikely) won't fit easily in the space location. The passenger has to walk home! ;-)

    - Aftermarket 16" lookalike Ferrari rims. Inexpensive. Gives you the original look. Doesn't match the original TRX spare. Practical and inexpensive, but not original. Don't turn up to a show and shine.

    I am just starting with the first option. Original. As it rolled off the factory floor. As I find out what the availability is like, I might go for one of the other options.

    I found someone who may have refinished TRX wheels for around half what you mentioned. I am looking into it. Will keep the thread updated.

    I still don't even have the car yet...
