plus I am typing this cuddling and surrounded by my early Chrimbo pressie, a new set of forged magnesium 19 inch Manthey MM1s that I collected today Thumb


These are my absolute favourite rim for the 997 five stud. A load of Manthey tax but so hard to resist.


Tis true about MAT, but OMG, soooooooooooo light and made of unobtainium!


Check them carefully for cracks where the spokes meet the rims after you've done the second set of tyres; my bet is you'll find them cracked & you can't repair them... Surprised


The Manthey ones are Forged so should be a lot stronger than the oz allegeritta

Unfortunately, it's the magnesium they're made from that's the problem, not how they're made. Matt has a set in the stores at Fearnsport that couldn't be used again due to cracks after 2 sets of tyres.

The 993GT2 Speedlines (magnesium centres) suffer from cracking too, but as the spokes are substantially thicker they can usually be repaired if the damage isn't allowed to get too bad.

Well they still look nice as ornaments Floor
Am planning to use them on track high days and holidays and not as a general road wheel.
Plus will get them xrayed before the tyres go on.

Very, very nice Stuart and very, very tempting. I may be persuaded to get a set myself. I currently have two sets of OEM GT3 wheels so could lose a set of those and replace them with the BBS E88s.

Anyone know how much a set of OEM 996 GT3 wheels would go for (obviously without the tyres)?

Pip Question
Ps it is just wrong posting up with the wheels in boxes and not a picture with them fitted.......... Hand

I will let you know although it is unlikely to be until spring/summer next year at the earliest as I have other Rolling Eyes things to sort on the car first. I am guessing they must be something around the £2,000 mark though Question

Guess again - they rarely go for more than £1500 in perfect condition. I got £1100 for mine a few years ago.

I was considering stumping up my hard earned cash for these until i did more research on the cracks issue.

I've gone a bit cold turkey on these! Can't justify purchasing a set if they crack this easily. The roads where i live are not particularly smooth either.

Are these isolated incidents, does anyone have firsthand experience?

Hmmm are you sure you did not undersell or sell at the wrong time? I am sure I paid more than that for mine. If it is £1,500 for perfection I may just build up my collection and keep them then.

No wonder you rarely see them for sale. It is not worth the hassle for less than fifteen hundred knicker Very Happy

Well thanks for the heads up..

Will probably be ten years before I can report back on the Mantheys, I dont drive hard or frequently enough to wear out two sets of tyres in the space of time that Nick does. Following Nick's heads up, I did give the wheels a good look over today and can see no signs of paint cracking in the region Nick illustrated with his OZ's.
But I guess this is all going way off topic so will report back when I have done a few track days on them next year. lock

I am guessing 996.2 wheels?

I just picked up a good set of 996.1 GT3 wheels with 8" fronts and 10" rears for £555. Bloke who sold them was very chuffed. I guess the .2 are rarer, but at £1500+ you are running into OZs, which are by far a better and lighter wheel

My car is the original K400 - first registered to Olaf, then to Michael Eschmann (Manthey Racing Co-owner and Team Driver back in the late 1990s). It pretty much has had the whole Manthey catalogue thrown at it. I think the bills come to around EUR70k - Manthey charged themselves for the work! Bought it with 25k miles on the clock back in 2014 from a chap in Germany, now sitting on 35k miles. Used for trackdays in the UK, trips to Wales and the odd Ring trip. As a matter of fact I am off to Rockingham on the 10th - it's their unsilenced day, so I can unleash the MM Exhaust to its full glory Laughing

Keep looking for 996.1 wheels on eBay. Took me about 12mths of faffing about to find a set. Just missed out on a great set with Pilot Sports PS2s for £899 as I was being a cheeky fekker and was trying to get them for £850. Someone bought them under my nose, and then copied and pasted the excellent description with a new price tag of £1700! But bargains do turn up every now and then.

I am sure I saw a set of Mk I wheels for sale on ebay a few pages in. As part of my research into deflationary issues with Mk II wheels Very Happy .

These are the exact wheels that I was cheekely trying to buy for £850 instead of the original BiN price of £899! Someone else lifted them and now has been trying to double his money for the last two weeks. Even the description is "borrowed" from the original listing...

I had them bought at £899 and the seller said he was not selling them anymore!!
The location of the advert is the next town to the original seller.. I smell something fishy here!!

I'm happy to pay £1000 for a set of MK1 wheels, £1250 for MK2 or a little higher for LM's etc...

I'll keep looking...

Your orignal CS K400... Sounds lovely
