Scale Details is the only source of modern wheels in 1/8 scale that I've found. Unfortunately, they are for Pocher models of the Ferrari's and are priced accordingly.

You may want to think about making a set of wheels for yourself.

Hondatech;

I've used some of the RC wheels. EPI makes a 5 spoke that will simulate a 16-17" wheel. I think there are some of the newer LeMans style wheels in (near) 1/8 scale.

I just slipped a Yokomo 5 spoke wheel into a 1/8 Camaro Eagle GT tire and it looks great. This is a 26mm X 50mm wheel. I believe the mid-80s Camaros used a 16" wheel so that's good for them.

I also just tried a set of Traxxas 2.0" LeMans style wheels on the Camaro tires. They fit beautifully, but the higher sidewall profile doesn't look quite right. These are too small for the Bridgestone 255/40 ZR17 wheels from the Pocher Porsche.

Both the 50mm and 2.0" wheels are a little too small for the Pocher Ferrari tires, too.

Those IROC 5 spokes were good looking wheels back then. What were you looking to change to???
