Today I fitted a set of GT3 RS Centre Locking wheels to my GTS.

The GTS's CL's just didn't fill the rear arches as I'd like and as you can't use spacers on CL's, the 12" GT3RS rears were my preferred option. I've always liked the polished rim of the GTS wheels and was thinking about having a polished / silver rim done around the edge of the RS wheels - but the all black is growing on me...

Look fantastic

I know that the rear GT3/GT2 RS wheels have the correct offset, however don’t the front RS wheels protrude around 10mm past the front wheel arch which is why the GT3/2 RS have extended front wheel arches

However the std GT3 centre lock wheel has the correct offset for your car.

That’s why this conversion becomes expensive as it requires the front wheels from the std GT3 and the rear from the GT3/2 RS, so normally have to buy 2 sets of wheels.

You also need a set of black centre locks to finnish off the stealth look Thumb

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm really pleased with the look Very Happy

I thought someone may suggest a bit more of a drop and I can see where they're coming from but I've already heard a couple of minor scrapes from underneath (I think it's the brake cooling ducts rather than the splitter though) and I think any lower would detract from my enjoyment of the car. The handling on the Eibachs is superb!!

Regarding the black centre nuts, sadly having said they were included in the sale I think the seller overlooked that he'd need them for his new wheels so I've used my original ones - I think I like them as it highlights the centre nut (sometimes I think all black wheels can look like the wheel trims have just fallen off).

Bikeracer1098's comment about the fitment of the RS fronts protruding beyond the arch is valid, but the lower offset helps and means that they are about 15mm further out (so equivalent of a 15mm spacer). It's close but they don't protrude - if you look closely at the RS's extended front arches, you can see that the wheels are slightly tucked in and the arch gives plenty of cover.

Anyway, thanks again for the comments - these cars are just awesome!! Thumb

I like the different colour centre nuts, I think all black would be too much.

I’m surprised you’re saying they don’t protrude. I fitted them to my car and before I fitted the flared arches the wheels did protrude. I don’t understand if they’re not but great anyway. Car looks fab.

Do you mind me asking who did you buy the wheels from?

If they are not protruding past the wheel arch you have definitely got the front wheels from a GT3 (not GT3RS) with rear GT3RS wheels.

Next time you take the wheels off check the part numbers for reference.

That’s because the front wheels will be off a std GT3 (not GT3 RS)

I know about the different wheels. I was going on what he said the wheels are.

To be fair the wheels were advertised here quoting RS offsets front and back.

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=128340

You can see however in the ad photos that the fronts are not protruding so are GT3s not RSs..........so as you say Matt has the right ones.

Ah good so thats that resolved then , Matt did even better than he expected then as a pr of GT3 fronts and GT3RS rears would have been big bucks to source new , and as stated further up would probably have required buying 2 full sets. nice result Thumb Thumb Thumb

Matt, pretty sure that the set you have bought are these ones.......

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=105194&highlight=

More videos on youtube if you are interested........ as has been said, there are not many sets of these wheels kicking around.

This will give you an idea of how they would look with black centre caps (Monky London had RS centre caps).

I have the black CLs on my set but they are not cheap, £600+ I think.

To confirm, it's a full set of RS wheels - I checked all part numbers and offsets and inspected each one very closely before parting with any cash.

Fronts are 9x19 ET47 p/n: 997.362.157.96
Rears are 12x19 ET48 p/n 997.362.165.91

While to some degree the extra width is compensated for by the offset they do stick out a few mm but not exposing tyre tread (which is where it becomes illegal) and not quite in the realms of the VW Polo stretched tyres crew! I think it gives it a nice stance. Thumb

I'm just heading up to the Ace Cafe so maybe see some of you there shortly...
