Is there a 'quality' difference between Carozzeria and Marchesini wheels?

tough to know for sure, haven't heard bad reviews about either, marchesini probably has more racing cred, and Americans can't pronounce either name. :D

buy them for the design you like, everything else is negligible.

On the street? Probably no difference. On the track? Not sure but I'm sure the one that gets raced more probably has better R&D.

i really like the carrozzeria wheels on my 999s! the rims are really nicely built! i have heard however, the bearings are not high quality. i can't confirm that but i did have a rear wheel bearing go out after hearing that. and the spacers could be a little better.
fwiw i would take carrozzeria over marchesini...

I remember reading on another board about guys buying carrozzeria rims and changing out the bearings to the ceramic type right off the bat. That was the hot ticket for the drag guys.
