Just because we’ve got the new Ferrari 488 GTB to talk about, doesn’t mean that the 458 Italia has lost any of its appeal, does it?
Well, no, of course it hasn’t. Especially since it’s naturally aspirated V8 is part of the pantheon of all time great power units. Having said that, take a look at this beautiful 458 decked out in Rosso Corsa, and sitting on a set of SM5R Deep Concave Monoblock Strasse wheels.
They measure 20×9 up front and 21×12 out back, and have a lower overall weight than the factory wheels. The SM5R wheels are finished in Brushed Bronze which is what the client asked for, but we’re not so sure about that color contrast. Red and Bronze/Gold kind of cancel each other out.
Luckily, the Monoblock SM5R wheels also come in Black, Silver and Gunmetal. As for the design itself, no arguments there, these things are beautiful.
Speaking of which, so is the 458. It always has been.
