Yes, and I want it yesterday. I love the way my 350mm looks but with today's stickier tires, I would prefer the leverage of a larger OEM-sized wheel as well as a better line of sight to the speedometer.

380 is as big as I would buy. I'd be happy with anything from 360-380 with 365/370 being the sweet spot.

370 is the perfect size IMO with an extended hub and/or a dished wheel to move it away from the dash.

Yes.

And I think a cursory search of this forum would uncover a great number of folks that have bemoaned the lack of a 380 in the current line up. I only mention this as I am one of those who rarely looks at the top of the forum page and suspect others might also miss the poll.

I would love to have the increased leverage of a larger wheel. Parking lots are getting tougher with my 350 mm.

Definitely. I bought a Momo Retro in part because it was 360mm.

Didn’t Momo make a 380mm Prototipo years ago?

I'd buy some 370mm Prototipos. I think that's the sweetspot. My 370mm Abarth wheel feels great and the gauges are juuuust visible. I'd rather it not be 380mm.

Prototipo in 370mm with some dish would be perfect, but I would 'settle' for a 380.

This reminds me of the "Momo give us Mo'" or something like that thread where many of us were asking for 370s and it went nowhere. Still would prefer a 370 but if a retro 380 is what's offered, I'm in.
