Unfortunately I think Ronaldo is looking for the Compomotive TS wheels also used on Ferrari 308. Very nice wheels indeed! These wheels are out of production and so few were used on GTV6 that getting them second hand is a Challenge! However there might be other brands making that pattern in 8X17 or 8X16?

Here more photos of the rim TS for some other car.

Maybe the NTM F308 is the answer actually? Depending that they make the right size! Renaldo?

I think truly that the 16" wheel is the 'sweet spot' as far as perfect aspect ratio of size of wheel vs rubber for these Alfetta/GTV6 cars. That said, my NOS TS-1701 hubs of this design are 17" wheels... a tad larger... but I'll live with that. (more 17" dia tire selections than 16" btw) The only other comparable (Daytona style 5 star) 'larger wheel (15+ diameter larger) wheel that I'm aware of in production right now is the HRE 505, and they start at 18-19" diameter - definitely too large for our cars... and a 'heck of a lot more expensive!!!'

Anyone else have other "5-star Daytonas" comparable wheel models?h Remember, just because its a '5 star'... doesn't necessarily make it a 'Daytona like' 5 star.

Sorry, I can't tell you much about these cars other than the first 1 has widened standard GTV6 wheels and all 3 are from South Africa. I grabbed these pics from GTV6.com.

Actually I think you are referring to Swedish Nicke´s GTV6 project some years ago! Actually I think those wheels are too small, probably 16"- too much rubber! I think it would look even better at 17"!

Personally I have also been on the lookout for something to replace my modular Compomotive CX Wheels as they are difficult to balance. Their size are 8X15 front and 9X15 rear. After experience with my racer GTV6 I would now choose 8X17 ET25 with one of the spoke patterns (like the CX) my posts above - and Bridgestone S 001 rubber.

Considering some spray on rubberised coating just to mix it up - thinking flat black or a graphite colour - what say you all?

Looks nice. You should mention make, size and ET if you want to help others to easily find rims like this!

Looks like 17" to me but cant read anything more..

Thanks Gabor! They are OZ Racing Superturismo 17x8 et35 with 225/45 Goodyear Eagle F1 directionals. The tyres are new and not like the old design F1's. I think the tyre walls are softer on these and i find it squirming a lot more which is a bit unsettling...

Marty you could recoat your wheels a dark colour to see how it would look as a contrast to your silver car but the overall effect of your silver car and wheels looks good now.
The wheels on my car are blue gun metal that look black from a distance. I think they contrast and compliment the dark red AR501 of the car the black of the trim.
