Little setback on the wheel choice for the F430
Posted 05 July 2006 - 02:14 PM
I got today the wheels I bought on the 'bay to China (Bless the internet). But as Bob Downie warned before, they are small for the F430. These are about 17 scale inches. They may work in the 308, but the F430 looks like a wheelbarrow with them
Somehow, I don't like the wheels in the Revell kit. I'll keep looking.
Yes, I have a wheel fetish

What style are you looking for?
What about the Fujimi Sportec wheel or the NT-03 +M?
Here's my Wheel kits page. Maybe you can find something in their?
If I can help let me know.

If you don't mind a slightly blingy appearance, there's a set of Pegasus BBS style wheels that look good inside a set of their 23" sleeves. I almost used this combo on my Z06, looked great up close but from across the room they looked just a bit too big so I stuck w/the Ferrari rims.
The stock Revell rims are sufficient if you lower the car a bit. Dave Thibodeau built one that way and it looks pretty good.

I bought to sets of these and they are excellent! I bought them for my Ferrari Modena's...
Those are nice (I have a couple sets of them), but they are a scale inch in diameter smaller than the ones in the F430's. They do look great on a 360 Modena.
Scale Auto Style did the best ones; slightly larger than Fujimi's but SAS is OOB :cry:

I would use the kit's tires or something else "meatier" than those rubber bands.

Although the other ones look great too.

I agree with you guys. LXZ have been ordered...
