Sorry to be nitpicking, but that's not a Scud. Its a standard F430, with the Scuderia-style stripe. Looks fantastic, nonetheless.

What we have here is a beautiful Audi S5 massaged by STaSIS Engineering. Apart from an 80-odd hp power-boost, courtesy a remapped ECU and performance exhausts, you get phenomenal brakes and suspension components and 20" ultra-lightweight forged aluminum wheels.
That S5 seems to be running on some seriously fat rubber. What's the tyre profile? 295/40 at the rear?

And here is a German sports-car modded by a Japanese tuning-house for the North-American market. A wonderful 3D Design tuned Z4, complete with ESS Turbos, custom Eisenmann exhausts, Brembo brakes and 18" BBS wheels. Sluuurp!
The Z4 looks absolutely delicious!

Oops, my bad! Didn't really notice. Was busy gawking at those wheels.

Yup. Those tyres are quite wide. The front wheels wear 295/25 20". Not sure about the rear. They might be marginally wider but the aspect ratio may not be too different.

Oh yeah it does look great. I love the carbon-fiber bits and those quad-pipes, apart from the wheels, of course.

You bumped the thread a little too early, i was going to put up this pic anyway
Here is one of the best OE rims ive ever come across & the car is in my top 10 cars of all time - the slithering & menacing Dodge Viper!

And since youll were talking about wide rubber, the viper puts down so much torque & power that it needs 275/35 R18 at the FRONT!!!
And an unheard of 345/30 R19 at the rear!!!
This is in stock form And it still cant put down the power well enough onto the tarmac!

The stock wheels on the Viper do look great! What I like about Vipers are those side-routed exhausts and that wonderful silhouette. This orange Viper, wearing gloss-black HRE P40s, looks incredible, I must say.

How abt the Ford GT's ? Notice the classically inspired chrome hubcap. Absolutely majestic.

^^ Following up on the HRE Vintage series of wheels, here is a Carrera GTS SLAMMED! I think the wired-wheels look great on the car, and the black stone-guards and duck-tail spoiler compliment them perfectly.

Hideous, The Outrageously ugly, The terrible AKON bling, The ... (more adjectives needed guys)

btw, the Viper is simply delicious. I remember I saw it the only time and drove it for a brief 3 miles while I was looking out for a used ride for myself in Richmond VA. This beast was menacing. For those few mins, I was the star attraction on road. The car had modd'd side exhausts with fire spitting and a crackle of a noise.
I was scared to revv it, a little dab while taking it out from the lot onto the tarmac and the car just crackled and drifted a bit.

Loved the wheels on the new Facelifted BMW X6.
I am not sure if the same set of wheels are present on the earlier gen X6 or other BMW's or not.

In this thread posted by Scorcher, you can find the images of the same.

I've got a soft-spot for neo-retro wheels.
