Is it possible to still get hold of these? I think they would look great against polar silver in gold, don't really want to go to 19"

Yep!! That is stunning! Good looks don't come cheap though! Guess I'll need to keep my eyes open for a second hand set!!!

I bought these off a guy who imports 993,s from Japan. The wheels are mint and were £2250 so they are out there a lot cheaper than carnewal.

I thought a fellow canny Scot might have got a good deal somewhere! I need to know what exact size and offset I need so I can move if I see a set! Would this be the same as the OE wheels or would the offset be different?

I don't like them. (runs, hides for cover).

If I was to change the rims on my 6T, I would put RUF wheels on it..

Likewise... never really understood why they were so popular....

Assuming that the popular choice is usually the right choice, it confirms I know nothing!

I have always loved the BBS LMs. I personally would go 19s though as i have found due to the design in 18s they look smaller than equivilant allows that have say 5 or 6 spokes instead.

if you went 19" what would the optimal wheel /tyre size and offsets be? Also would you need to fit spacers? Any advice from someone that has fitted these would be great.

I saw this 996tt on eBay with LM's.

Looks amazing, I might get a set for my 7.
