I have a really nice Hobby Design kit for the 360 Mode a and I was thinking about upgrading the wheels. I'm not very good at having the vision of a finished product.

I was thinking something subtle but a bit nicer than stock, not too big either. Anyone have any ideas of what would add a nice clean look

BBS LM for sure. They fitt every car and are timeless and clean.

are those the wheels that come with the R390GT1, 911 GT1, and the 911 GT2?

Here is what I was planning to use on my 360's

Aoshima 20" BBS-LM (or you could use Fujimi's version if you want bright chrome like those shown below)

And Tuner Model Manufactory's 20" 458 Italia Hamann wheels.

Actually I just checked and they are currently available from Hobbysearch and HLJ....
These are the ones with gold centres but can very easily be painted silver... or any color since they are seperate from the outer, chromed rim.

I'm not so sure that the Porsche LM's would work too well on the 360.

From memory I think they only scale out to 16" or maybe 17"...... might look a little small IMHO.

all the BBS LM i found on Ebay dont have the same number of spokes. I like the ones in the pictures you showed, but not the wheels I found. I'll wait and see if I can find some I like. thanks for your help

Hemi Killer take a look at the wheels that Mike at "scaleproductions" makes - I'm sure you will find something there - they're very high quality and do not require clean-up just assembly - John

I think I'm going to go with these. I'm not a big fan of big wheels, I don't think I'd like the 20"

I just realized this, Ive been reading. I havent ordered yet. The more I look at pictures, I think, the more I like the stock wheels. Maybe paint them gloss black or gunmetal. Im still looking. i appreciate all the feedback
