When Top Gear reviewed the new Ferrari 458, Jeremy Clarkson hailed it as the “best Ferrari in recent years.” Certainly a testament to modern engineering as the 458 was just a tenth-of-a-second behind the Enzo on their test track.
Wheel companies have it rough nowadays. New cars, especially supercars, are being designed and built with already near-perfect setups. It’s a tall order to attempt improving it.
Nutek Wheels set out to do this on the 2011 Ferrari 458. This very special example looks menacing in black, which comes with a special-ordered custom paint trim on the interior and emblems.
To accent the car, Nutek decided to fit a set of fully forged three-piece 505 series wheels. Measuring at 20″ x 9″ in the front and 20″ x 12″ in the rear, this configuration was designed to work perfectly with the factory recommended tires, and allows room for the owner to select a wider tire, if desired.
The final touch on this wheel setup is the finish; custom painted to match the blacked-out emblems of the car for this setup is truly one-of-a-kind.
The 505 wheel from Nutek offers various sections of the wheel available to be painted to suit the owner’s needs. If you’d like to see for yourself, head to Nutek Wheels and play around with their wheel configurator!
