I hope that you are going to update with supplier and cost as well as time from order to delivery. Just to keep my dream alive.

I have a 996 to put them on so the narrow bodied GT3 (8.5" and 11" rear) but want to upgrade the engine to a 3.8 at some point so am not sure if it then follows that you go for a wider track.

I recently put a set of 19" on my turbo.

I bought them from racing team hofmann in germany, they shipped out within a week and usually stock porsche fitment e88's.

Today is a good day.

An exciting package arrived.



Followed by some hasty unwrapping;





Now awaiting tyres to land.

I'm off to calm down in a quiet corner somewhere Grin

Trying not to think too much about these. The want is dangerously powerful.

Hi Ollie, good to meet you a couple of weeks ago. No wonder you sold the Cup wheel so quickly !!
Wheels look lovely, but be aware, they’re unprotected and thus high maintenance. You may want to look into getting the barrels painted and the outers anodised...

Love those wheels, I've been lusting after a set of 18" LM's for my car, but a little uncertain which ones to choose (width/offset).

9's and 11's Neil. Or 8.5" on the front if you can find them.

Fear not Slippy, plans are afoot. Either ceramic coating or similar on the barrels.

My car is never left dirty for any period of time anyway Thumb

Is the 8.5" a nicer balance with the 11" rear than the 9"?

The 9’s are pretty much all additional offset Neil, so whilst they fill the arches out better, they don’t do a lot for steering feel in my experience.
8.5 & 11’s is what the Mk 2 996 GT3 used.

Thanks Henry, I'm assuming that tyre availability is pretty equal for 8.5 and 9"?

Those wheels look stunning. When do we get to see them on the car? Cool

Unfortunately (or, if you are my bank manager, fortunately), BBS no longer make the LM with a gold centre, it would appear.

Am I obsessive enough to buy new silver ones and immediately repaint them?

Wheels were sourced via Fearnsport Thumb

Tyres arrive on 10.07 so I'll be getting them on the car very shortly afterwards!

Great stuff - looking fwd to seeing them on the car Thumb

Would love to do the same with Cup2's solely for TD's.
Sounds like only in 19's is this possible.
