    F430 wheels

    Who thinks the stock 5 spoke wheels look a little weak on the car, even the stradale style rims don't seem to suit the car any better! I've just done a quick photoshop showing the car on some Novitech rims which makes the 430 look loads better. What do you think guys?

    Re: F430 wheels

    Looks nice. I just dont think the split-design looks very butch.
    It's more nice than cool, if you know what I mean.
    But damn, the car looks nice.

    Re: F430 wheels

    Heres a couplee of quick suggestions.
    Pardon the rough Photoshop work, I hope u get the point.



    Re: F430 wheels

    no 2

    Re: F430 wheels

    No 3

    Re: F430 wheels

    The rear wheel looks kinda weak because of the angle.
    Cant reproduce a picture of a rim in the right angle in PS.

    Re: F430 wheels

    the novitec ones look almost like the stock rims

    no 3 is the best one out of your selection doc phil

    Re: F430 wheels

    I like the standard wheels on the 430 better then the Stradale wheels. I think the Stradale wheels look best on the CS.
    I like the Novitech Rosso wheels even more. The spokes have more depth./ They're thicker and look cool with the single bolt.

    Yeah, I'd probably pick number 3 too, if I had the luxury problem of picking wheels for an F430

    Re: F430 wheels

    It strikes me..looking at this beauty I cant help thinking if only Porsche and Ferrari would co-design a car.
    Let Ferrari do the sideview, and Porsche the front and rear view...that would make a helluva car I think.

    Ok, it doesnt get more speculative and Sci-Fi-ish than that. LoL! But still

    Hehe...nah.
    What I mean is..Porsches dont look as good from the side as the Ferraris and Ferraris don't look as good from the front + rear ast the Porsches IMO..so maybe a little design-swapping would do the trick?

    Re: F430 wheels

    Dr. Phil, could you PS the Gallardo SE's new rims onto the 430??


    Puh-leez??!?!?!!?



    Re: F430 wheels

    Personally, I like the Challenge wheels on the 430. The stock wheels are o.k., but you see very similar design wheels on so many other cars it kind of ruins them for me. And I like the fact the Challenge wheels are forged.

    Oh, you speak German? Didn't know that!

    Re: F430 wheels

    IMHO the Novitech wheels are very close to the standard rims, so no need to change them for that design.

    Phil, I don't really like any of your PS.

    I'm with STRADALE, as I prefer the standard wheel design to the Challenge rims. The standard wheels bring up a new design or at least a new variation of the classic five spoke design of Ferrari wheels. Moreover they are similar to the Enzo wheels. They look good to me!

    Re: F430 wheels

    The first ones look GREAT, the others on the other hand......not diggin'.

    Re: F430 wheels

    Drp Phil's No 3 with out the deep dish and lesser chrome would look perfect.

    Sure, if you can find a picture of the wheels from a similar angle as the Ferrari.
    I cant find any other pics of the SE model anywhere...

    Sounds good.
    Or a jointly built car. That would be an automotive project for the ages.

    Yup. Great combo. 11 years married this Saturday. 21 year anniversary from 1st date. Very lucky she puts up with me and my car fetish.

    Re: F430 wheels

    As my wife said to a couple at the PCA picnic last weekend. --- "I rather he decide to trade his cars every 6 months then his wife" !
    LOL!! I started craking up!!

    Re: F430 wheels

    suggestions are not bad, but i would prefer leaving the car original at most the stradale wheels would provide an agressive look.
