This is a full set of alloy wheels and tyres, suitable for various competition versions of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’. The alloys are 15-inch in diameter, manufactured in magnesium alloy. They are believed to be high-quality reproductions – possibly by Tecnomagnesio – but there are no casting marks to confirm this.
The wheels have a staggered setup between the axles, with a 9.5-inch width fitment at the front and 11.5-inch at the rear. They are painted gold to mimic the finish of the wheels on numerous Ferrari racing cars throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Unofficially known as the ‘Daytona’ in tribute to the 1-2-3 victory of Ferrari’s 330 P4 at the 1967 24-hour race, the 365 GTB/4 enjoyed considerable competition success in its own right – at Le Mans, in particular. Only a small number of original ‘Competizione’ cars exist, but standard road cars have also been used as the basis of exacting recreations or modified to exciting ‘semi-comp’ specifications.
The tyres on the wheels are Dunlop Racing items, in size 4.30/11.60-15 at the front and 5.30/13.60-15 at the rear, and date-coded to 2002.
Presented in race-ready condition, these wheels are in good order with only the sort of chips and scuffs in the paint finish that you would expect from road or race use – as shown in the photos. This set of Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Competizione’ style alloy wheels would make a great spare set for a racing Daytona, or could even be used as the basis for motorsport-inspired furniture to enhance any enthusiast’s collection.
