    These rims are $1,400.00 plus tires it is less then $2,000.00. I am planning on getting a deal were I could get them cheaper and putting them for sale on my site.

    if you go to the Privat website you can see they offer them in
    the 5x100 (fiero pattern). the only problem for me is that they
    don't have the exact size i want but i could live with it.

    would you mind sharing where your getting yours?
    i think this is the wheel i want.

    thanks,
    tom.s

    Re: F355 Rims

    thats a nice wheels but ill let you in on a secret....

    three piece looking wheels look much smaller than one piece wheels.* The spokes are much shorter becasue of the 1" or so for the boltplate.

    becasue we are limited to 18's, in this day and age when many performance cars ship with 20's, 3 piece 18's can look small and dated, as compared to a one piece 18 where the spoke are longer and the wheel visually looks much larger.

    make a comparicon of two similar wheels one one piece styled and one three piece styled....you'll instantly see what I mean.

    Koenig for instance has this same wheel without the bolts.* It' would look much larger (and more contempoorary) on the car.


    this might be a sweet option for a Ferrari as well

    We're not limited to 18s at all.. That is what most people select because that is what the stock 355 comes with. Personally, I'm using 17s with more rubber because I like that look. There are a lot of stock Fieros running 19s, even 20s. If a stock Fiero can do it, any kit can do it easily...

    Here's Curly's car with 20s on it.. This is an 87GT. He is running rear coilovers but other than that the suspension is stock.


    I put a set of 20x11s on the rear of my 88GT with stock suspension and it cleared perfectly.

    pit,
    how much have you found these rims for?
    there is a group buy on these rims but they only have these sizes 17x9.5 ($670) or 18.9.5 ($800).
    i think 9.5 on the front is too wide.

    how would these look on a red 355



    thanks...

    They all look good but I prefer the single piece look for the 355. What do you think of these? They are 19's trial fitted to my donor car.
