I run the CCWs on my cup. They are better than a multi-piece wheel because they will never leak from the center seal (which I have seen with Forgelines, BBSs, etc).

Any wheel would look good on that Fly Yellow RSA.

I agree for track a one piece but here is what I am running and they work perfectly.

Fikse 18 Mach V
Outer Rim 1.0 X 18 30 Hole
Inner Rim 7.0 X 18 30 Hole
Front = 8.0 X 18, +51mm Offset
18 Mach V
Outer Rim 2.0 X 18 30 Hole
Inner Rim 7.5 X 18 30 Hole
Rear = 9.5 X 18, +44mm Offset

Thanks - I've been looking at some lightly used Fikse FM10s, but the sizes are off even though the offsets are for a 964. 9" fronts and 9.5" rears. I want "optimal" fit for 235/265 PScups and can't see the sense in having a 1" wider wheel up front. Love the Mach V's too...

A couple of tuners / Porsche shops all say the same - the 18s are just a better choice for the track. The BBS RS-GT in Silver is really appealing and about $3k at the rack. Fikses are a little more but you can't beat that "made for Ron" look.

Good thing about CCW- tell them what you want and thats what you get.
No more spacers etc.

I agree with that - I'd rather not deal with spacers because running oem wheels on the street means direct bolt on and I don't want to have to fiddle with a spacer every time I put the track set on. So, in that case there are still plenty of options: BBS RSGT, Fikse, Forgeline, CCW, some Ruf, etc.

Ron,

Have you looked at the C10's? A little lighter, and to my eye, a little better for a track 964.

C10's are awesome in 11's+ with the spokes recessed and a nice lip. Alas not for the 964.
But they do come like the C14's and worthy of consideration.

I checked with John at CCW and he suggests the SP18 in 18x8.5 and 10. I like that basket look. Anyone have a photo of any Porsche with the SP18? Can't find one via google...

Apparently a common mod is to move the stock RSA 8-inch wide rears up front, and install 9-inch wide C2 Turbo for the rears.

Can anyone suggest wheels / tires that might be a good match (not necessarily for sale now, but types of wheels)? Should I focus just on wheels with the correct offsets and avoid spacers? Thanks in advance!
