    I've gone through them all...can't find anything elegant / classy / attractive that doesn't send the bling-meter to full.

    I may just try to find a set of stock 575 wheels, or the 575 modulars...

    What kind of car do you have? HRE offers a very classy 547R wheel that when you put the Ferrari cap in the center it looks almost factory. Not to much bling because its not chrome, just polished. You can get it from Meridian Automotive Design for a decent price, their website is www.meridianonline.us

    But if you want a REAL sexy, classy wheel, you MUST go with the Zauber F-01 3-Peice. When on a 360 (not sure what car you have), it looks so stunning it will put you in a trance. Try www.wheelpower.com

    Can the 575 modulars (19") fit on 360 without modifications?

    I'm looking at a set of OZ Superleggera IIIs for my 360, I think they would look nice

    Car is a 550, in black.

    I think I'm just being picky. Problem is on the 550, lots of spokes or thin spokes do not work well at all.

    No, i agree. Lots of spokes on wheels for a front-engine car (long hood), it just doesn't look right...did you try the link i provided?

    Dan:

    What look and performance issues are you looking for? There are a wide varience in wheels depending if you want lightweight, elegant, sporty, etc. It is always hard to improve upon stock, especially with wheels. Nothing seems to ever look right liek stock wheels.

    Try Fikse or Kinesis in addition to HRE. Go directly to the HRE website instead of Meridian IMO. Dunno if you want shiny, matte, painted, exposed hardware or hidden (Fikse) but there are plenty of quality choices I reckon.

    Cheers

    I think 19" Modular wheel is still the best
