Refining the Ferrari F12 with Satin Black HRE P103 WheelsTim S
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (or F12berlinetta, to be technical), just as its successor, the 812 Superfast, is a true Italian grand tourer following a classic formula with modern styling and tech.
With a long hood and stout rear haunches, the V12-powered sport cruiser commands respect.
And as beautiful of a spec as this F12 was from the factory, its owner sought a way to set it off with a fresh look.
A quick look before the swap. This F12 came equipped from the factory 20-inch wheels on all four corners in a thin, 5-spoke design finished in a satin black.
Wheels: 20×9″ (Front) / 20×11.5″ (Rear)
Michelin Pilot Super Sport: 255/35/20 (Front) / 315/35/20 (Rear)
The P103’s multispoke design adds a new level of refinement to the F12’s place as true Italian GT car, while the satin black finish doesn’t distract from its striking side profile.
P103: 20×9.5″ (Front) / 20×12″ (Rear)
Michelin Pilot Sport 4: 255/35/20 (Front) / 325/30/21 (Rear)
The HRE Wheels P103 is part of their Series P1 lineup of forged one-piece Monoblok wheels. Finished in Satin Black, this 10-spoke wheel was spec’d to add width to all four corners, while increasing the rear diameter to 21″ from the factory’s 20″. There’s also slightly more rubber out back to take advantage of the extra half-inch of barrel width.
Up close with the HRE center cap and factory titanium hardware.
The larger 21″ diameter out back enhances the rear’s muscular stance. The slimmer sidewall of the PS4 tires maintains the same overall diameter as the factory’s 20″.
Even though the tire size remains the same in the front, the HRE P103 is 9.5″ vs the factory’s 9″ width.
A striking wheel for a striking automobile. The HRE Wheels P103 elevates the Ferrari F12 with a more refined look and sportier handling.
