Default Wheel pic shootout! Post your pic of your favorite.

I have not seen a thread that just focuses on wheel pics. It would be a great resource for those looking to see what the 928 looks best in. Of course, it is our own opinion on what looks "the best"!

Please post the whole car.

This wheel is a copy of the older ruf wheel for the 911. It was designed for a Porsche in mind and it looks good without being tacky.

Agreed, but a new thread would be more than a bit redundant.

That thread has a style evolution built-in.

Default more pics

I picked a few more wheel pics from that old thread. There are some hideously ugly wheels out there! These wheels came across as some of best styles for a contemporary, sporty and smart look. Of course one has to be Chuck Z's Cup 4 wheels for Sport Edition.

I agree with you on both those.

Brett,
All seriousness aside, being the fastest 928 does not mean that you didn't get your *** handed to you by Le Car.

Default Sport Edition

Just for your information. Sport Edition is one of Tire Rack's in-house brands, offering customized wheels by Japanese manufacturer Kosei. They are then made in China. What isn't these days. The wheel meets quality standards set by TUV Rheinland. The 18x8 fronts are 11.16 kg 18x10 rears are 12.34 kg. The 19x8.5 fronts are 11.97 kg and the 19x11 rears are 14.79 kg. Not bad for a very affordable street wheel. They also look easy to clean, unlike many mesh styles.

Any recommendation on tires for the 18"?

They are easy to clean. 'Specially if you put a coat of Rejex on them before they ever go on the car.


I put Sumitomo HTRZ III's (235/40-18's and 295/30/18's) on them per Damon's suggestion at Tire Rack. The rears spin very nicely.
