Default 993 RS Speedline wheels or not?

I've got the Speedline RS wheel bug (again).
Excuse the quick Photoshop photo, but I'm looking for opinions on how these would look on a silver C4S with the ROW suspension.
All opinions welcome!
Thanks.

I don't like 'em on a WB. If you have to add spacers, maybe it's not the best choice? Can't us NB guys have anything to call our own?

Some people love the looks of those wheel; however, respectfully I have always thought there is too much rim metal for my taste. It tends to hide those great looking discs/brakes IMHO. Just my $.02. The good thing is you really can't go wrong as I've never seen a bad looking wheel on these cars...just comes down to personal taste and what does it for you

Great looking car!

Speedlines are nice, but think of the time you will spend keeping the wheels clean especially around those fasteners. I'd keep the hs twist!

GET EM !!! They look great on a wide body. But be warned....after you throw the adapters on to flush out the offset they are going to slow you down. Did someone say anchors ??

I like the originals, however, if you are going to change, look at the BBS RS/GT's. They look fabulous on our cars.

+1 on the too much "rim metal" look. Then there's the fact that they're pretty heavy to boot. And very expensive...

I was thinking about the Speedlines recently posted for sale... but like others have said.. think the OEM look better on wide bodies. I'm thinking about the RUF wheels and IMO they look the best.

RS Speedlines are a great looking wheel, I have them on mine from time to time ...If you have a widebody car you have to fill them with the wider versions as fitted to the 993 GT2,,,spacers just do not cut it, I am afraid!

I have a set of Speedlines (Alesio) that I am not going to keep. They need some refinishing, they are not perfect! Let me know if you are interested.
