5 spokes (Daytona style) Campagnolo, originally in 14" diameter (Michelin XWX tires 205/70-14) and 6"1/2 wide (with 7"1/2 as option). Two other manufacturers appear over the production time frame: Cromodora then Speedline. Even if the design is basically the same, one can notice small differences between the brands (different angles and finishes, stickers on Campagnolo and Speedline brand, embossed on Cromodora). The central insert of the wheel is made of thick plastic on early versions giving a blurred aspect to the «Cavallino rampante».

In the last quarter of 1980, the factory introduced rims in metric dimensions (given in millimeter) as standard, due to the introduction of Michelin TRX tyres. Rims become polished/frosted in Europe with the «Quattrovalvole» model until the end of 1983 and will once again become paint in plain silver.
