Default New BBS FI-R for 991 Turbo

I finally got my new wheels in last week after choosing the BBS FI-R. I went with the the 9X20 ET 48 and 11.5x20 ET46. The wheels are forged monoblocks. I was shocked at how light they were when they arrived. The only other comment is the detail of the wheels is definitely better in person and the more aggressive offset is much better than factory.

Link to the wheels:

I'd also like to thank Brian Hare at Detail Werkz here in Dallas for setting me up with the wheels. He has been taking care of my other cars for 6 years and is the best around.

Looks great Tom!

Bright finish picks up the window trim, tips & tails too...well done.

Great looking wheel!

x2 on the comment above about the window trim.

BUT I think it needs to be lowered.

Thank you Honda and Vader.

I do not disagree on lowering but I really do not want to mess the with the ride of the car. I have lowered before and the car never drove as well.

They look great! And I agree with you about lowering. I lowered my last car and regretted it almost instantly.

Looks killer. I've been toying with getting a set for my Agate Grey '17 Turbo S.

They look great!

Can someone post how much they weigh, and how much OEM 5 bolt turbo wheels weigh?

Also, did you use OEM size tires?

Will OEM Porsche crest center caps fit?
