Default HRE FF04s on 991.2 C2

I bought these as a Christmas gift for myself. Been itching to put them on for a while.
Finally got around to after coming back from a trip. No complaints.
Thought I'd share as not many seem to post these style HREs on the 991.

Still unsure about coil overs. 1/2in lower would make it perfect, but it's my daily. Roads are not good after this winter.
We'll see.

Looks great. My car is identical to yours, right down to the black “sport” tailpipes, and I’m trying decide between the FF01 and 04. The liquid silver wheels look great on a black car.

Thanks for the pics.

I was deciding between the FF01s, FF04s, and Vossen HF-1s.

I like the FF01s, but they seemed a bit flat and agressive. Was going for a more subtle look. hence the FF04s.
Liquid silver is amazing finish. So much more dynamic in person; pictures do not do it justice.

Very nice, when it comes time for new tires I'll be putting a set of FF04s in Tarmac (I know, just black but it's what I like) on my C2. (Might do TechArt springs at the same time)

Nice! What color is your car?

I thought about keeping the blacked out theme with this, but went with the contrasting look. No complaints.

Look forward to seeing your car with the drop!

Nice wheels. Clear corners.

Super clean! I have FF15's and love them. The lightness over OEM wheels is noticeable in how much more sprightly the car feels. My only issue is they're time consuming to clean (about as much as my previous Macan's Spyder wheels), extra so thanks to being matte (which I've learned takes more time to get right than clearcoated wheels).

I can definitely feel the lighter weight. Definitely a bit more agile feeling.

I love the finish on these; coated them before putting them on so curious to see how they clean up.

Yours should be a synch! I envy that. I remember the days before my Porsche’s, when I just had simple 5 star wheels with alloy finishes. Wheel washing was a breeze. Now it’s the most annoying part of my washes, lol.

Are the FF04’s fully forged wheels? I believe my FF15’s are “partial forge,” so while they’re lighter than OEM by a decent amount (further compounded by the fact that every pound in rolling mass is multiplied) I’m not getting the “full weight loss” benefit, yet still, the enhanced agility is definitely noticeable.

The construction is similar to your FF15s. The barrel is forged/rotary formed. The face is cast and heat treated. Hence the hybrid forged naming.

Thought about fully forged; but the ROI didn't make sense to me lol. These are still very nice and light; no complaints.

Have you thought about a spray sealent? Not as long last as a proper coating, but definitely helps during cleaning. I used Sonax Spray Sealant on my black OEMs. Cleaned properly then spray sealed (which takes maybe 10 minutes for all wheels). Made the subsequent washes a breeze. Lasts about 3-4 months and can be used on paint as well.

Nice! Was mulling over Carrera S rims for my Carrera White C2 Cab but these might do the trick.

Do you find the rim sticks out beyond the sidewall?

I'll double check later today, but I didn't notice the rims sticking out at all. Suggested size for tires is 245/35/20 and 305/30/20. From my initial impressions, the fit appears to be on point.
