Default Who likes the Stock Turbo S 20" Wheels?

Personally, I am not a fan of the 20" Stock Turbo S Wheels.
I know some people have painted their gloss black after delivery - but also you can order the wheels like that from the factory - at a whopping $1700 extra.

Stock wheels tend to bring in $6K on eBay, etc. from what I have seen.

I love the HRE P101's ,but at approx $10K - wowzers. I wanted to keep a winter set (OEM) and get aftermarket wheels?

BTW - mine are CL and I want to keep that - not interested in going to 5 lug.

What have you done and at what cost? Thanks.....

IMO, I dont see any AM wheels that are better fitted/looking than the factory tts wheels in its standard 2 tones color.
So I've done nothing.

I like both the Turbo and Turbo S wheels. The Turbo wheels look like angry razor blades. The Turbo S wheels look like beautiful/elegant snow flakes. Very different looks, but both extremely nice wheels.

I love my stock TT wheels and have no intention of changing them. The P101 and BBS FI are the best after market in my book but at the price vs benefit, no thanks.

Wheels are one of the best features on the TTS in my opinion. They look awesome!

I like my Turbo wheels. The dark grey interior gives them depth and hides brake dust. The only downside is that they take some time and effort to clean.

I like HRE P107s but not sure if the price is worth it and would miss the contrasting colors (polished spokes, gray interior).

The only other wheel I sometimes wonder if I should have gotten are the Sport Classics.

Totally agree. Stock CL is King for the car. Priced up a set of HRE recently and was horrified!!! As nice as they are, they don't look as good on the car as the stock wheel IMHO!

TTS Center Lock... that's the best looking wheel on a 991 turbo. I don't like aftermarket ones or the turbo wheels.

Absolutely love my Stock Turbo S CL's. As a matter of fact, I was going to have them powder coated matte black, but they look so good in person that I can't.

I like the standard center locks on the TurboS. I have played around with getting a set of 21" HREs with P-Zeros and TPMS, but the total cost shipped to me, ready to put on the car, was about $13K. I already have that amount in the car with exhaust, Tune, custom cf/leather Sport steering wheel, laser/radar system, front/rear dash cam, and several Carbon fiber replacement pieces.

I need more time to talk my self in or out of doing the wheels!

I am in agreement with the general consensus that the CL stock look the best. I did have mine painted after market and saved about a grand. I gained at least 30% in BHP and torque by doing so as well.

Love the Turbo S wheels. I get lots of compliments on them. I do wish they weren't so time consuming to clean and that's even with opti-coat pro on them.

The first thing most everyone says who sees the car is, "Those wheels are beautiful". The yellow calipers really set them off. Great combo and well like by me.

Agree. Love the stock turbo S wheels too and have had several compliments as well. With PCCB and no brake dust, I've never spent so little time cleaning wheels!
