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.


Hi Freddie,

Yes, Cup2's are N/A in 18" for these size of rims. My 2p worth on the tyre debate;

There are plenty of other choices in 18" however, Yokohama, Kumho and Toyo.

I don't doubt that Cup2's are a better tyre than all of the above, however I do doubt that I personally will be making absolute 100% use of Cup's anyway at the pace I drive on circuit. If in time I can outdrive the Yoko or similar tyre, and genuinely say that my car will go no faster without Cup2 fitment, it's likely time to park it up...

And buy a Cup car! Grin

2007 Porsche 997 GT3

Haha sounds like a great idea!

Why are 18's thought of as the better option on the 997 GT3? Everyone seems in agreement on this. (we obviously have 19's fitted originally, so just wondered..)

These particular BBS's are very light, which is why I went for them personally.

18's look much sweeter also, so I won't deny that's been a factor too.

All Cup cars run 18's as far as I am aware.

They're finally on. Absolutely delighted I went through the pain barrier with 18's rather than 19's - they just look so much more at home in the arch and in proportion.

When the 997 first arrived there were more options for tyres in 18” as the “track day” market had been running on 18 for a while with the 996

They look nice but then so do the 19’s

Cheers guys Very Happy

I'll keep the OEM wheels and tuck them away. I've kept every OEM part I've changed in case the car ever goes back to standard.
