Also, did you use OEM size tires?

Will OEM Porsche crest center caps fit?

20 x 9.5 et50 18.3 lbs
20 x 12 et44 20.5 lbs

5lug

20 x 11.5 et46 19.85 lbs

OEM center caps will fit the 5lug wheels.

Thanks! I take it those weights are for the BBS. Know what the OEM wheels weigh?

I did use the factory size tires with MPSS tires. I'd call BBS to confirm but believe the factory center caps fit but was happy to keep the BBS ones.


As for weight there is quite a weight difference, between 7-8 lbs a wheel.

That kind of weight difference is significant, thanks.

Did you consider HRE P101s? Any opinions on the HREs vs. the BBSs?

If we're comparing weight, it's pretty similar. To compare weight differences the BBS FI-R should be matched against the R101 Lightweight. Since we're talking 991 Turbo, here's the sizing and weights to compare:

991 Turbo Centerlock
20x9 - 17.2lbs
20x12 - 20.3lbs

Very similar, thanks. I have 5 bolt hubs. What is the difference between the R1 and P1 series? They look very similar.

The P101 is what started it all, and though very lightweight itself, we only offer the P101 in 19"-22" so though that may fit the bill for many, there are those out there who needed a 17" or 18" option. For those who want a more motorsport oriented wheel, also made in sizes more appropriate for the track, the R101 was a better option (R101 17"-19"). The R101 adds standard bead seat knurling, more machining on the sides of the spoke and in other places to remove more weight, but also add strength in spots that take the most abuse. The R101 Lightweight is the most extreme version, removing as much weight as possible without detriment to the wheels' rigidity, but we take into consideration the specific model car that it will be used for, the load ratings and power level of the vehicle, and we design each R101 Lightweight to that specific model.

I did briefly look at the P101 as they are probably one of the most popular wheels for the 991TT/S along with the ADV1's which are cut by MHT(who also does Rotiform, Niche etc). There are a set of P101 5 lug at a good deal in the forum which made the P101 more attractive. The P101 is a nice wheel.

The benefit to going with say HRE or ADV1 is that you can customize the color/finish and the offset. HRE buys their barrels still I believe. I would check with them to see if they publish data on their forging process. How many times they cycle their wheels in testing.

The BBS wheels come in standard offsets, which fit perfect btw. BBS has their on foundry onsite and controls their forging process start to finish. Your factory wheels are manufactured by BBS. They make the best engineered wheels on the market.

It's been more than a year since I visited this thread, and I finally decided on a set of wheels! I considered a lot of different ones, but in the end went with BBS F1-Rs in 9x10 and 11.5x20, shod with Sport Cup 2s in OEM sizes (245/35-20 and 305/30-20 N1 spec). I was strongly tempted to get HREs but the F1-Rs weigh less than P101s and they cost less than the R101. The HREs are specially made whilst BBS are off the shelf (though sometimes still need to be special ordered). The HREs also have the advantage of a huge color palette (I really liked the frozen gold with my blue car), and their custom nature is very nice, but there is some comfort in knowing that if I somehow happen to mangle a BBS, it should be relatively easy to get a replacement. Very close decision, but my pocketbook got the better of me, along with the convenience of being able to order the whole package from Tirerack (mounted and road force balanced with TMPS monitors installed; thanks, Damon!). I now have a second set of nice wheels for warm weather use with the SC2s, and can switch them out next winter with just a floor jack in my own garage.

Looks great! Any more pics to share? Colors work really well right now together!

If you decide you want to custom finish the FI-R we would be happy to assist. Liquid painted options in solid colors or Brushed w Translucent Clears

I was hoping that you liked them! They look great! You really have to see an FI-R up close to get a full appreciation of the detail. I was fortunate to be a guest of BBS to see the production facility of this wheel a few years ago in Germany. The manufacturing process is amazing. Weights BBS list as 17.4 lb front and 19.85 lb rear.

Thanks for the picture.
