A lively discussion about this topic and video is talking place on L4P.com. The general feedback is that chrome rims on a Ferrari are a "no go", as they take away from the classic looks and styling of the vehicle. The question "Who is the maker of these rims?" is still unanswered, so if you know, please chime in.

I'm curious about the aftermarket wheels on this Ferrari F360.
1) Who is the maker?
2) What do you think about how they look on the car? Are they an enhancement or a detraction?
President Barack Obama was in Dallas this week and friend of the website Vanessa Olivares snapped a photo of the presidential motorcade as it rolled down Interstate 35. Vanessa writes:
"So, I was a little mad because I couldn't get on 35 and there were a million cops. Then, I realized the president needed to ride exclusively on 35!"
Great picture Vanessa and thank you for sharing it! The presidential limo (officially known as the "Presidential State Car") represents the highest level of exotic cars in terms of both rarity and customization. In fact, it's not an exotic, it's a super exotic with features including four wheel drive, windows that do not open, integrated global communication systems, and a custom interior lighting system (required due to the protective glass of the vehicle letting in so little light)!
Here's a great customized Mercedes Benz E55 AMG. It sits on Michelin Pilot Sport tires wrapped around silver and black Blitz wheels by Gianna (which are available in staggered fitments). The blacked out lights really set off the look... MANY more pictures after the jump!

Happy Saturday! Your fearless blogger is back with another installment of "Great Plates" (awesome vanity plates on awesome cars). Take a look:
The vanity plates on this Red Tesla electric exotic car remind everyone how "green" it is. (Reader submitted photo.)
This black and yellow Corvette Z06 with bold vanity plates screams, "Look at me!". Corvette drivers are known for having outlandish vanity plates (just ask radio and TV personality Jim Rome), so for one to claim his car is "THE Z06" means both the car and driver really have to bring it.
Very attention getting paint scheme. It's like a hornet on wheels. I approve.
Closeup of "THE Z06" vanity plate. Opting for the black Texas Star plate was a good choice because it continues the black color them of the rear of the car.
Black BMW 760 LI with New Mexico vanity plates that promote the owner's business. Strong.
