    Exclamation Urgent advice needed pls

    A Ferrari owning friend sent me the following message, "
    You'd better check to see if they fit as they might be too big. Fronts at 9.5" are 2.5" bigger than standard!!!!"



    Can anyone confirm whether these Hamann wheels will fit my 348 or not?

    I'd hate to spend 1k on them, lug them home, and find they won't fit!

    The eBay ad states they were on a 348, andmade for the car. BUT, the question is whether the fronts are too big. Anyone know please?

    My wheels are 8" and 10" wide. I have some 15mm spacers on the rear, but 25mm does fit with no problems. The tyre sizes on the Haman wheels are the same as mine and as I said, fit is not a problem.

    If they are massively offset away from the hub, you may get problems, but if the guy is advertising them as 348 compatible wheels, the remainder of the offset is probably towards the hub.

    Have you asked him?

    Oh that does not look good on paper. You need to ask the dude what of set the wheels are. Of course if the of sets are correct for the wheel/348 combo then thats great Why not ask the guy for a photo of them on the car?
    I have a Hammond brochure so i am about to go find it, then i can give you more specs i hope.

    Looking good mate Found the Hamann price list thingy.
    Your wheels are called 348-150s (front) and 348-151s (rear). The fronts are 9.5jx18, and rear choice is between 10.5 and 11.5j.
    I have also looked on my Hamann chip invoice and here is the number of there UK branch so any problems give them a call 01785 220101
    MB: And by the way ya wheels brand new cost 675 +vat front, and $815.00+vat rear;).....each

    Apart from the colour, yes it does!
