Default 993 narrow body twists

Dangerous thing to ask on the RL but.....

I have a set of 993 narrow body twists (ie non-turbo) that I am considering for local sale (Seattle). I am having them refinished with powdercoat in stock silver. What is/are a set of non tarnished 18" (8" & 10") narrow body 993 twists worth with fresh p/c and gloss??

ET's: front: -52.5mm rear -65mm

Will edit once done next week with pics and f/s price. JFYI, 993 part numbers...OEM!

Thanks!

BTW could deliver to PCA Carillon Pt 9/21 if it works out.

Depends if they're OEM with Porshe part #s or aftermarket. If OEM, big difference if solid or hollow spoke. NB, hollow spoke wheels aren't that common.

OEM...993 part numbers. Narrow body = solids IIRC and turbos/hollows have smaller offsets

I would like to see part numbers photographed on the wheels as well as the offsets and width stamped next to valve stems.

Failing that I'd venture that they are not at all OEM wheels. I'll learn something new if they are. Certainly, not 993 OEM.

Out of curiosity, what do hollows go for in good shape?

Next week when they are back I'll make sure to document each wheels' p/n and ET. Offsets aren't stamped next to the valve stems, they are on the back.

Rudy, you seem to have a gift for finding all the deals. The rest of us pay at least 15% more.

FWIW, I just paid $700 for some 996 NB solid spokes with tires at 70%. I'd give the wheels A- condition (a couple small scuffs). I couldn't find any comparable prices as the 996 turbo-look NB don't seem to change hands very often. Like most things, I would imagine the 993 NB wheels to be a bit more.

NB hollow spokes are worth a little more then the same WB hollow's, when I picked up a good set they were $1500 a few years ago, the same WB wheels were $1200 in the same shape.

That what makes me believe they are not OEM wheels.

I've been offered 996 solid spokes for next to nothing locally with scuffs and track use cosmetic issues, but have no idea what i'd do with them. If anyone needs them, let me know, the guy was about to chuck them yesterday.
