I really love LM's, although you may need some spacers at the rear or reverse mount them.

Massive gap, if I fit them then i'd be looking at spacer options. 15mm Confused

I have GT3s on my turbo and I would love a set of gold BBs to swap occasionally. #dreamon

Ride quality is going to suffer with that last set.

Love the LMs. Closest I've seen to M3 CSL rims which are thumbsup

From the pics I prefer the TT’s but as mentioned think the BBS LM’s may look better with spacers.
Lastly the GT3’s

Assuming from the pics that these are all 18's:

LM's are a great wheel but from experience the visual effect of 18's will make them look smaller than a single piece alloy and you will have to be prepared for the upkeep and cleaning.

Facelift GT3 Alloys look good but lack a little "wow" factor.

Turbo II's are a timeless classic on the TT IMO. They would look great painted in body colour with a silver lip to give them an updated look. See pic attached for idea of how they would look...

Correct, all 18's thumbsup

hmmmm, maybe the LM's need to be 19's Confused

The std wheels are my all time fave wheel so maybe just a colour change will required...now, where is that colour chart Grin

18's for go, 19's for show... The ride will obviously suffer a little on 19's as the tyre profile will be lower and the wheel heavier.

The standard wheels painted in body colour with a fine silver lip would look awesome IMO. Thumb

This is interesting ... Personally I can't understand the love for the original wheels at all Confused They are my 2nd least favourite wheel of all of Porsche's designs on a 996 (997T being the absolute worst IMHO )

FWIW, and I know I'm biased as I have the GT3 style turbo wheels on mine (with the 'spokes' in GT Silver) and 5mm spacers all round - however I think against your much darker blue, I would go for LM's in gold as mentioned above, with 5 mm spacers and probably in 19". Assuming you are not on standard, if the ride quality really does suffers too much then I'm sure the suspension settings can be adjusted to dial it out

Just my 2p

Boring I know but I like the standard twists... They really match the car nicely!

No need, well done for speaking your mind, even though you are wrong Floor Judge

I like the standard twists too. Funny how tastes change, I really loved 997.1 wheels on my turbo when I bought it but I now prefer the original twists. Unfortunately I can't fit 18's due to the 380mm rotors I'm running PC

Some OE silver hollows would iook nice on yours HSC911 Thumb

I agree with this Rags. Mine came with some deep dish ganster drug dealer wheels on it. It even had the invoice for the wheels. The previous owner paid £5k for them. They were badly curbed but I sold them to a wheel refurb place for £2.5k. With the cash brought some gen 2 997 turbo rep + tyres and banked the change. At this point I really disliked the twists... Then at some point my opinion changed and I have been running turbo twists since.

Jin I agree, original silver will look great on your car being a darker colour.

BBS LM with spacers would be my choice.

Not a fan of the GT3 wheels on a Turbo... You can give them to me if you don't want them..... Wink
