Isn't it amazing how they look bigger than the stock? But in fact they are the exact same size.

The front is lowered about 1mm on this model too, so that changes the look a little also. This FF is my Guinea Pig.

Nice stuff.  Do you have any pics of your Hamann B on a 458 or 599?

They look familiar, because they kind of look like ADV5 wheels, but they are not. These are made the old fashioned way. On the lathe with blood sweat and tears  :lol:
After the centers' shape is created, they received six holes. Then the holes are filled with 5 lug nuts made from styrene and one center cap is made. Next the face is cut off and mated to the wheel barrel of a Ferrari FF wheel, which had its face removed. This becomes a front wheel matching the exact dimensions of the FF wheels.
Next a mold is made from this front wheel to replicate it. Then the resin copy is heated and stretched to have staggered and concaved look. Once this is achieved, its face is cut off again and mated to the rear wheel barrel of a FF wheel with its face removed.
Now we have one front and one rear wheel which are staggered and the rears have much more pronounced concave design.  Then from them a new mold is made, from which sets are produced.
The wheels on the pictures are the fronts after the first mold was made to use for the creation of the rear wheel. They will not be used for anything, but to stretch the spokes.
Great work!  I love custom resin work!
For your wheels, do you do a squish mold or a two piece (with a pour hole)?  Also, do you vacuum your wheel molds?
