Guide to BBS Magnesium Wheels for Porsche GT3, GT3RS, & GT2RS by Wheels Boutique
 
http://wheelsboutique.com/wp-content...5/logoflat.png

With so much demand around BBS Magnesium wheels we thought it would be helpful for Porsche owners to have a go-to guide for all the information needed on these highly sought after performance wheels. Also, read below for a special announcement ;)

BBS RE1757 & RE1758
20x9 ET 52 || 20x12 ET 44
Observed 15 lb (6.80 kg) Fronts Wheels|| Observed 18.4 lb (8.34 kg) Rear Wheels
Available Colors: Satin Titanium & Satin Black

Will Fit: 991 GT3, Turbo, Turbo S, 911 R, GTS (with Centerlock)

BBS RE1640 & RE1641
20x9.5 ET50 || 21x12.5 ET48
15.95 lb (7.23 kg) Front Wheels || 21.9 lb (9.93 kg) Rear Wheels
Available Colors: Platinum Satin & Satin Black

Will fit: 991 GT3RS & GT2RS

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7897/...001747bf_b.jpg

As of today, 2/8/2019, BBS is out of stock on both of these Magnesium sets. Optimistic estimates put the return of the 20||20 RE1757 // RE1758 around June & the 20||21 RE1640 // RE1641 around October or possibly even next year. There are no solid ETAs at this time.

Luckily (for you) we had a few customers who backed out of deals due to switching cars so we have these bad boys in-stock and ready to ship. Both fitments, both colors, weve got them. Supplies are extremely limited so do not miss out on your chance to acquire the most lightweight & in demand wheels for Porsche cars today.

I’m just curious of price....I know these are extremely expensive compared to forged wheels but why on all these wheel threads the price is never posted? Odd to me.

The 20"//20" BBS Magnesium wheels for the GT3, Turbo, & GTS are split 6-spoke.

The 20"//21" BBS Magnesium wheels for the GT3RS & GT2RS are split 7-Spoke

For the merely curious here who dont mind a bit of a cryptic answer (forum rules and all). A set of BBS Magnesium wheels in a GT3RS fitment will cost the equivalent of 117 Apple shares sold at the close of trading on 02/08, or about 15 of any of the popular one troy oz gold bullion coins.

Can't say enough good things about the guys at wheels boutique. I have ordered 3 sets of wheels from them in the last few years. David and the whole team are top notch. Fair pricing, great customer service and attention to detail.

Thank you A. I greatly appreciate the kind words and more importantly the support you have shown us over the years. I know you will be posting photos of yours in this thread real soon ;)


Scrappy1972 02-11-2019 02:40 PM

Is there any chance that the shock tuning from the factory is different on cars with mag wheels to account for the lower unsprung mass? Taken to the extreme, a car steel rotors and standard wheels should have different damping requirements than a car with ceramics/mag wheels. I think?

I would say almost definitely that there is no other change to the car for the wheel options. Many people who use mags (OEM or aftermarket) will also use the stock (or other) Aluminum alloys on the car too.

If you want to have that much control over damping, best to get aftermarket racing coilovers (like Ohlins or similar).


WheelsB 02-13-2019 03:32 PM

All PM's replied to. Special thanks to those customers who pulled the trigger on sets. Looking forward to seeing this thread fill up with photos.

aaa335 02-17-2019 11:21 AM

Got the mags installed yesterday. Very pleased with how everything turned out. David and Wheels Boutique provided a great customer experience once again. Too early to give any driving impressions but I am happy with the aesthetics. BBS offsets are a bit more aggressive than stock so wheels sit a little more flush especially in the rears. The clean lines of the wheels and open design give a motor sport look and work well to show off the massive PCCB's. Dave had suggested the yellow lettering on BBS and he was spot on. Gives a little pop and plays well off the calipers. Everyone who picked up the wheels including myself commented on the weight. They are ridiculously light, it is really very impressive. Plus my wallet is heck of a lot lighter now too :)

Beautiful! Glad to see them on a touring. Thinking about them for my Touring too.

Any thoughts on driving feel? Do you feel the wheels move a little more responsively with the ligher unsprung weight?

Robert Linton 02-17-2019 07:08 PM

In many aftermarket products there can be debate as to which is best. In wheels, however, there is none. BBS is the finest engineered wheel you can buy.

mooty 02-17-2019 07:45 PM

^ Robert took the words right out of my mouth. I am a BBS diehard

Thank you, I was able to get some seat time this afternoon. I felt that there was tangible difference in how the car handled and accelerated for sure. Turn in felt crisper and it seemed to pull harder. Of course this is the best weather we have had since I collected the car so I may have been getting after it a little more. In my experience a good light weight wheel can really transform the car, it is always my first mod.

Thank you for posting the photos here on the thread as well. We knocked it out of the park with the yellow lettering - I am glad you chose it. Many more photos to come from you and a few others who have purchased too ;)

Magnesium wheels yes, but there are more brands that are great or greater than bbs.
O.Z. , Braid, Speedline, Enkei, just to name a few. Braid for street wheels is the best, inexpensive, tuff as tanks, not heavy, will just not deform, brake or scratch, can be made to order easily and not very expensive for specific wheel nuts, offsets, etc. they are not very popular outside of rally world in Porsche oem sizes tho.

Robert Linton 03-16-2019 10:41 AM

Everyone is entitled to their individual opinion. For myself, I do not think that the albeit fine brands that you mention are as "great" or "greater then" BBS though some brands, e.g., HRE, definitely remind me more of the late Karl Lagerfeld rather than John Barnard.

Is the satin platinum colour similar to the Porsche satin platinum - it appears it may be quite a bit lighter in some photos but in others not so....???

Extremely similar. Often times the lighting or editing of a photo makes them appear to have different tones.
