NRING Has New Shoes

NO- These are not my tires- wish they were.  They go to an LMP1 Peugeot 908!

New Michelin Super Sport Tires

Tecnico Wheels

                                                   Before Powder Coating Gloss Black

Here's the latest modification for my Giulia NRING Quadrifoglio.  I purchased a set of used factory, Tecnico wheels and a new set of Michelin Super Sport tires that are a nice way to improve the wet traction and increase the 'wearability' of the car's tires.

In the process I also had the wheels powder coated gloss black at AB Powder Coating in St. Petersburg, FL  and an alignment check by our local dealer, Maserati- Alfa Romeo of St. Petersburg.
I am fortunate to have good places like AB Powder Coating and Maserati-Alfa Romeo of St. Petersburg to work on my car, as I am very particular about who does anything with the car.

I can say I'm extremely pleased with both for this project and the car is even more phenomenal with this mod.  The forged Tecnico's are about 5 pounds per wheel lighter than the Alfa signature five whole wheels and I just love the look.

Here's some pictures of the beautiful shop at the dealership and some pictures of the final product.

Congratulations to David Porter - his Peugeot 908 won the 12 Hour Classic at Sebring last weekend, adding to his recent win at Daytona in November!

Many readers of this blog may not remember this work of art and amazing piece of engineering. Here again for your viewing is a video about it:

So here's a few more images of this masterpiece that I was lucky to see in my viewfinder, along with a video clip done by my friend Roland Westerdal.  See more of his work at www.sportsandexocticcars.com.
