I love the heading, Any one running 19" lobsters?

Reminds me of the joke about the lobster who goes into a bar. Unfortunately its a visual joke so no good for the forum.

^^^ Grin I'm intrigued.


Op, lovely colour car. Thumb
My favourite 997 wheel, although a touch big for the 996, but that's just my view and I'm a fanny. Very Happy
They still look nice.

Kas That's good. Grin
I'd never spotted Batman before now. Now it's all I can see.

Took my crew out today in the sunshine, the car actually handles better and the steering feels more precise with the “Batman’s” on Laughing

Another pic in the sun 🌞

Am I right in thinking the 18" lobsters that I've seen are not genuine porsche wheels?

Only ever seen the replica 18's. Creationblue out of interest what size rear tyres are you using.

I'll admit I like the 997 Sport design wheels.
