Just a thought but have you considered Brixton Forged?

i know a few of the GT3RS guys run them. The WR3 is the model I got and it looks similar with some unique twists to it. Have been very satisfied.

The HRE R101 fitment for the 991 GTS (same as 991 turbo) is:

20"x9" ET44 at 17.2 lbs each
20"x12" ET45 at 20.2 lbs each

FWIW, these weigh 17.4 and 19.85 lbs. each, respectively. Adding lightness like that will provide significant improvement in ride, handling and acceleration. I'd be curious how these weights compare with comparable wheels discussed above.

In my research the monoblock version of the Brixton were comparable in weight. Mine are three piece with lightweight titanium bolts which added a bit of weight but I wanted something that balanced light weight along with the deep look I wanted. The guys at Brixton were super helpful comparing weights of 1-2-3 piece wheels and helping to choose based on the goals of the car.

At the end of the day forged wheels will be lighter than cast, and multi piece will always add a bit of weight over monoblock. Choose according to your goals.

same here the Brixton WR3 looks similar to the 997 GT3 wheels. BBS FI-R with its relief holes in the spokes and R101 LW with its deep grooves are the best looking wheels on the market now.

Great looking GTS, RDCR! Would love to see more angles of those FI-Rs on the GTS, particularly the front wheels, if it's not too much to ask.

Would also love to see what the R101 looks like on a narrow 991.2 Carrera or Carrera S—as none of the factory wheels really did it for me when I ordered my car.

The R101 LW has yet to be ordered for a 991.2 Carrera/S. If someone here is interested in becoming the first I have a special offer deal for that customer.

I do have photos of a 991.1 Carrera S on P101's which shares 95% of the design of the R101 LW.

The OEM 991 Turbo S wheels weigh 23 lbs in the front and 27 lbs in the rear.

these will fit but you you are downsizing the rear from a 12 to a 11.5.
