Does anyone know how the modul

Does anyone know how the modular wheels on the 360 compare to standard wheels in strength and weight? I'm going to be tracking the car a bit and would be willing to pay for the modulars if they are a superior track wheel.

Hi Gary and welcome to Ferrari-Talk.

Which Manufacturer of the Modulars?

In general Modulars are lighter and in many cases stronger than OEM. However the single biggest advantage imo with Modulars is generally choices of wheel offset and wheel width, that when chosen properly can add significantly to handling characteristics and tire choices.

I'm sure the factory modular wheels are more than strong enough for track use.

For the track if I think if it was me, I'd buy far less expensive in the aftermarket(BBS, OZ, Speedline for example) and better 3 piece wheels in a size of my own choosing, normally an inch wider F&R at least.

Thanks! How wide can you go before clearance becomes an issue? I've heard there is plenty of room at the rear, but the front is a bit tight.

The modular rims on the 1995 5

The modular rims on the 1995 512Ms were faulty and leaked air, but there was a recall of sorts and the problem is taken care of. I would assume that they have learned their lesson and that the new rims would not be a problem.

I really like the way modular rims look.

Cheers
