It is true the new Cromodora Daytona reproductions are not magnesium, but there are very few if any modern road wheels that are. It is just not feasible to use this material for a number of reasons.i hear the newer daytonas arent event magnesium anymore?
Unless of course one has ever seen the wheels used on the 1966 Ferrari 312. (though they were usually anodized gold rather than silver)first seen in 67 on the Ferrari (365 GTB-4) Daytona, so that is an early date point (size and bolt pattern notwithstanding).
While "look-alike" is perhaps a bit harsh, it is very obvious the wheel is derived from the Cromodora.OEM Spider wheel is "Daytona"; not "look-alike"
Why not use the correct name - the one that is used in all the Alfa literature? I think we do ourselves a disservice by trying to come up with different names. If two manufacturers use the same name, we should be able to handle this... I say we increase our knowledge base and show it by using the correct names, with additional adjectives if necessary, i.e. the OEM Campagnolo Daytona, the aftermarket Cromodora Daytona...While "look-alike" is perhaps a bit harsh, it is very obvious the wheel is derived from the Cromodora.
Since it does have it's own style with the deep trough around the rim, perhaps calling it an "Evolution" of the Daytona instead of a "look-alike" would convey the same meaning without being derogatory?
