I have spacers on mine and personal preference I realise but I like it and get loads of people commenting and the stance of the car

Interesting as FD suggests 15mm for front and 25mm for rears. But I think even though spacers will be applied, I should continue with the balance between front and rears as originaly technically designed by Ferrari/Maserati engineers. There are photos on FD site with 15mm fronts and 25 mm rears.

I ordered 2 pairs from FD and then found out they were illegal here. Didn't want any trouble with insurance companies etc. Luckily FD took them back from me, thanks guys!

Hi Tufan, I have these FK 15 mm ones on mine and they are great.
I picked up mine used on eBay, but that new pricing looks great.
They are German made.

Same supplier, Bruce?

I'm pretty sure the GT and Coupe wheels are not interchangeable, though?

Back to thoughts on spacers, why even 17mm were too much? Hard to notice 2mm. There is an option for me to get 15mm front, 18mm rear but you scared me

Do it !
I imagine it’s personal opinion as opposed to a rubbing/ performance based observation... Even then, if you don’t like it, you can machine 3mm from the pieces with relative ease....

:p

§EDIT- If you get the 18mm rears and decide you dont like them, I'll swap them for my 15mm & £ your way...!
Rears wanna stagger the front IMO !

The Hill Engineering spacers/bolts look to be a £320 investment for all four corners at the moment. Are there any other equivalent quality options out there at the moment?

Formula Dynamics have one which you need to order through Larini Systems if you are in the UK

It's the bolts which are the killer in the price

There is the German brand found on e-bay mentioned earlier on this thread but again you need to order the longer bolts seperately


The larger sizes i.e. 25mm at the rear do go on the side of "Ricer" you just need max negative camber and stretched tyres on 22" rims to look like an utter tw@t! I find this sort of extreme "stance-ing" really moronic, luckily not any of that in the Maserati world other than the odd exception I am sure.

Hill Engineering sell OEM style wheel bolts (polished and no flange behind the hex portion) in a huge variety of lengths - Maserati wheel bolts are identical to Ferrari bolts. I simply measured the straight section on my bolts, added 15mm for the spacers and then ordered 10 of the result (55mm + 15mm = 70mm) from Hill Engineering. Worked perfectly and look excellent, in fact to keep them looking good I make the garage and tyre dealer undo/tighten my wheel bolts by hand using a "saver" socket I also ordered from Hill Engineering which protects the polished surface from damage.
