    Has anyone tried, or does anyone know, if the Ferrara FR1 20" wheels will fit on the 2016 GT350?
    Ferrara says they will, but I don't really get a good vibe from their answers.

    They look sick. I'd love to see them in matte black 19's on a gt350. Sadly, it looks like they only have them in 20's. PLEASE post pics if you bite the bullet and decide to try them!

    Have you called them? Seems like they would know best. What did they tell you when asked?

    In their email they just said they would fit. However, they also quote me a price-- for staggered 9" and 10.5" wheels. So that makes me question If they even know what a GT350 is, and what size rims actually go on it.

    One reason I want to try different wheels is the stock Matt black are so hard to keep clean. A friend has gloss black on his Boss and they really look good.

    I agree with you that they are a pain in the butt to keep clean, especially with all the spokes on the non-R wheels. But I almost think matte black would be the only finish that wouldn't look as filthy after you drove the car one time. The amount of brake dust they generate is going to be more noticeable on any finish other than matte black. At least a wheel like what you are looking at will be easier to clean, but you'd probably have to clean them after each drive if you want them to stay shiny.

    I haven't been able to contact Ferrara, but I did talk to ElementWheels, who carry the Ferrara's, and they said they will not fit the GT350. Offset differences.
    In fact, I find very few rims that will fit the GT350. Probably since the aftermarket companies have not caught up with the newness, or that there is no demand.

    I sent email asking about these rims for my GT, I'll have to run the 20x9/20/10.5 for stock GT suspension. I believe that pic is running the 20x10.5/20x11.5 with air ride! I'm wondering what the 20x9/20x10.5 would look like! Anyone see this size?

    What makes me wonder if they'll fit is that their offsets are 30 and 35. Where ours are 40 and 55.
    Also, in doing research on the web I'm finding Lots of bad information on the Gt350 specs.

    I just received an email from Ferrada guaranting fitnent for their 20x9 and 20x10.5 wheels.
    Boy, I sure hate to be a Guinea pig since ours are 19x10.5 and 19x11 and different offsets. I know a tire guy in town. Maybe next week I'll go talk to him and see what he thinks.

    That's is a tough call! Not sure I'd want to go with a more narrow rim!?!

    Never go smaller unless you're talking about a supercharger pulley.

    why not just order the wheels and if they dont fit send them back? Does your tire guy have a GT350? If not, how would he know? One of those trial and error type deals. If Ferrada guarantees fitment, I'd believe them over the guy that sells 500 tires a week.
