Why is this laptime still here? it was done with aftermarket 22" wheels and not OEM Pirelli Nero tires

why don't you guys just note the addition of the 22' wheels in the laptime?

But I was surprised it was slower than the Superleggera and the ZR1 tbh.

Bigger wheels ruin the performance, so it shouldn't be removed.

Dede, uncorrect.
Suspension stiffness to ground have been changed with a 22'Rim and a stiffer shoulder tires. Shocks and springs etc etc were set up for 20' rims and specific K1 tyres. Wheel-surface contact colud be comprimise during passage on kerb .... more The Pzero nero is not homologated to be used with 458.
Anyway no problem. Have a good holiday !

I know, and that skews the comparisons, this laptime doesn't represent the actual performance of the 458.

Laptime is invalid and must be deleted, test car was fitted with non factory 22" wheels.
