Got myself some new wheels!

I have got myself a set of 2nd hand but mint 18" Turbo II wheels and new set of Continental SP2 tires to replace the original 17" turbo I's that were on the car when I got it. (my neighbour has a Boxster on 18's so it had to be done!)

Before.....

After....

I think it gives the car a more agressive, up to date look but still retains some Porsche originality.

The handeling has firmed up nicely with more grip. A little more tire noise but nothing to complain about. It was a straight swap with no rubbing, just had to remove the factory rear spacers first.

nice !

almost did the same.. went for Turbo II's but decided against it at the last moment.. I didn't really think it suited the 993 so much.... looked (dare I say it) IMHO too modern ? but that was on my NB car...

on a WB it's a whole diffrent matter..works better !

so still not sure what 18's I want...actually I do.. RS's !

btw.. you running 265 or 285's at the rear ?

They are 285/30 18's on 11x18" wheels on the rear.

I wanted a slightly more modern but subtle look to go with the clear lenses, but also to instantly recognisable as Porsche wheels. And yes they do suit a WB better. For me it was choice between just getting larger Turbo I wheels (not much of a change) or these Turbo II's :D
as I wanted hollow spokes to save some weight.
