    I have a great set of Novitec rims for a 575. I have tried to advertise on the forum, but on the page for advertisements it says I have "insufficient privileges" to post there. What do you need to achieve in order to advertise on the forum. I'm sure someone would like these and other 550 and 575 rims that I have. These are spare rim sets left over from converting back to modular 19" wheels. Taking up too much space and I need to move them all on.

    Costs you $15 to join and then you can post ads. A bargain, and most of those pesky ads disappear, too.

    Those wheels look great on the 456/456M, too, and that is where my old set rests. The 360 uses exactly the same NF2 wheels.

    Bas- Affirmative, exactly the same offsets, too. One reason why the V12s generally need 25 mm spacers on the rear wheels to look correct.

    Yes haven't got around to listing them yet. I must do it soon but have just been busy dealing with this virus situation.

    Same here... but I put my 456 purchase on hold temporarily (hopefully the seller will still want to sell it when this COVID blows out)......

    Lance- Buy them. They are easy to sell if you do not end up needing them. Sets come up rarely. They usually need repainting since the factory paint job was not too good. Mine came straight from Germany and the paint was marginal when new. Paint code is PPG 36520, Argento Metallizato, Argento Nurburgring, same color.

    Are these the NF2 (I think that’s the name)? They should move pretty quick.

    The absolutely best wheel on a 456/550, bar none. I'll be very interested when they come to market.

    Mat- Just be aware they are really heavy (12.5" x 19" of aluminum is heavy), so ride, especially at the rear, suffers a little bit. Very pretty, though, and a good 5 bolt copy of the Enzo wheel.

    I love the wheels but agree the weight is unfortunate.

    From my archives:

    Front: 9 x 19 ET33 5x108 (Novitec PN F436002-ZV)
    Rear: 12.5 x 19 ET56 5x108 (Novitec PN F436004-ZV)

    Never weighed them, but you can get a hernia putting on one of those rear wheels with huge rear tires. Mine had 355/25 19 Pirellis on the rear, but those are no longer in production. Just the 345/30 19 MPSS tires fitted by most owners now weigh 34 lbs each.

    Apologies to all that have made enquiries about these wheels. I will have to dig them out and take some pic's and check some details as to size etc but they are the same as Taz's set shown in his pics above. It may take some time as I have been busy with the virus issues and just have not had the time to go and find them.
