    Nice pick, never cared for the jeweling on the spoke blades myself but the twin spoke looks great on these cars it should look slightly updated but not too much. better mine the less.

    8.5 front, that's mighty wide. You going with clear silver or bronzish finish?

    Post em up when installed!

    Glad I stumbled upon this thread... I'm actually planning on some 18" BC Forged wheels for my 348. Also agonizing over final wheel choice.
    Interested in your final offsets.

    Since I have an F355, the offset will be different than those that are needed for the 348. I'm staying very close to the factory wheel spec of ET 32 for the fronts and ET 77 for the rear.

    No its the same. If you keep the original offset and go with wider than OEM you will have problems.

    Got the wheels in today. Shout out to Vivid Racing and Michael on these. These were actually received in a shorter time than first quoted. To refresh y'all, these are BC Forged EH175 and the finish is a Brushed Grey. The depth of the finish is more translucent than the pictures show. I'll have the tires mounted this weekend and get them on the car. Meanwhile here's a couple of pics in the box with the center cap and lugs sitting on the wheel. The Titanium center cap is a perfect match and worth the extra $pend.

    There is no room for a dish on a a 355. The distance from hub to fenders is just to small. What other car has a near 80mm offset in the rear?
    I attempted a dish on mine with my pg3, when I was mocking it up I simply mounted the spokes to the hub, and the spokes are almost flush with the fender. Oh well...

    It's what BC came up with using the widths and offsets I provided for the F355 and enough clearance for the StopTech BBK that will go on. Also because the front and rear offsets are different by a large amount, I want to make sure that the "dish" and the center depth be uniform front and rear were as close to each other as possible. There IS a bit of dish. The front on pics don't show it too well. I've seen wheels with deeper dishes in the front or rear relative to the rear and fronts and they looked way to weird. I wanted the look the same all around. So using all those requirements, I'm very happy with the results. They provide profile drawings along the way for approval before the wheels were machined so there would be no surprises.

    Definitely can have wheels with a dish on a 355 and yes usually its different front to rear 360 wheels are an example of this. I like that myself but can't wait to see them on! Love the color.:)

    Definitely doable dished seen it frequently perhaps it depends on the specific wheel design/structure. Usually more dish rear than front or no dish in front. (I like that personally but I get having it the same all around).

    The BC wheels selected with minimal dish should look good I have seen similar wheels on a 355, I bet this will turn out to be a great selection. The wheels have a lot of jeweling on them with facets etc which gives a bit more modern look, will be interesting to see how it matches the 355, I bet it works well.

    The rear and front wheels looks identical, looks the same in width. Are those staggered? Rear looks like no wider then the front.

    I’m a big fan of the stock speedlines but I have to admit a set of these forged three piece would be amazing. (Augment Wheels)
