We've spilled equal parts ink and drool over the new Vintage Series wheels from HRE. The pieces invoke all sorts of bedroom poster memories from our misspent youth, and seeing them bolted to some of our favorite modern supercars is enough to invoke a guaranteed smile.

The guys at StanceWorks have featured a particularly moving combination. One Ferrari 458 Italia owner opted for a set of 505s in matte bronze as an homage to the legendary P4/5. The combination Ferrari red and those fat five spokes is absolutely sublime.

If you're rolling your eyes at the thought of yet another garage queen getting a new set of shoes, take heart in the knowledge that this particular 458 is owned by a gentleman who isn't afraid to put miles on the clock. In just three months, the owner has rolled the odometer up to 6,000 miles, which means this car has had the opportunity to stretch its legs on more than one occasion. Perfection.

Scroll down for a quick video of the car by our friends at eGarage, and be sure to crank the volume toward the end.

      That looks slick. Great choice of wheels, impressive that the design manages to look good on F-cars from the P4 to the F40 to the 458.

      Absolutely beautiful! Rarely does an aftermarket wheel look good on a Ferrari (IMO)... but I stand corrected. I'm saving these photos in my harddrive dream garage.

      Why people give thumb up only to positive comments? You boo because people have opinion? 458 on retro wheels is like wearing a 2012 Armani suit with 70's afro hair style. It sure looks popping but they sure don't go together. I think HRE is doing this promote their brand, not to make the car look better. Because if anyone sees this car on the road, I guarantee their eyes will be on the wheels till the car disappear from the corner. They are using the car to get your attention first, then keep your eyes on the wheel. It's a marketing strategy. Think of it this way, if the wheel was designed nicely and flow with the 458, would you have look at the wheel? I doubt it.

      I'm not a fan of those wheels, but I have to say, they actually look really nice on the 458.

      Ohhh the chubby... More proof I should've been born rich instead of so good looking :-)

      the offset on the fronts doesn't look all that stellar with that particular wheel design. Still, not bad... (stockers fit this particular car better IMO)

      Wheels are really old school. For those asking about the song: Grum - Want U

      Imagine a Z06 Corvette with 'Crager S/S' mag wheels.

        ... but I actually love these wheels, and they don't look that much out of place on this 458.
