    Need to pick your brains, guys. Are the "F1" wheels in the AMG GT3 and the McLaren actual F1 wheels? Or are they just F1 stylized? Do any of you guys know how wide the F1 style GT3 wheels are?

    Thanks guys.

    I'd presume they are bespoke wheels made by the factory specifically for each car. Pretty sure each F1 team makes their own wheel and you won't find that particular wheel in any other car (though there probably are some electronic components from a common supplier shared between them).

    Ah. Good info. Does anyone have an idea of how wide the average wheel would be? Would they have a smaller diameter than a GT wheel?

    IIRC the MP4-12C GT3 car had the wheel from the McLaren F1 car of about ~4 years prior the GT3 car. Probably not the exact wheel from the F1 car, but another manufactured example of it.
