Default In search of 19" kinesis supercup-esque wheel

Looking for a suitable 19" lobster wheel replacement for my NB 997. Anybody know a vendor?

DP Carrera cup or kinesis supercup is what I'm after but I believe those folks are long gone. Techart made a similar design but only went up to 18's I think.

Custom one-off's too cost prohibitive.

What say y'all?

Not familiar with the style you're looking for, but I have these fully forged Champions for sale in a 19" NB fitment. Ad with all the details is in the Marketplace.

Beautiful car/wheels although not what I'm after.

Also interested in a speedline-like design in 19"

The Tramont Cups are only available up to 18's though.

Thank u gents.

The Tramonts are single piece cast?

Wish they were available in a 19, however, if they were cast they'd prob be quite heavy. What's the cost on the 18's and did you source through dealer network in US?

The Tramont Cups are low pressure cast with anodized aluminum outer rim. The front ones weigh approx 24 lbs and the rears 27.

You have to deal directly with the factory in France and they only accept wire transfer as method of payment. They will include the shipping in the cost and the wheels will arrive at your house after paying customs fees.

Depending on exchange rates, the wheels with shipping included cost around 3k USD plus the customs fees which I believe is something like $150.

EDIT: You also need to pay all the bank fees (bank in the US and also the one in France), so add 100-200 for that IIRC.

thank you for the great info!

Interesting that the fronts weigh more than my 19" lobsters while the rr wheel is the same weight. the design of the supercup wheel (solid face vs cutouts, pockets or undercut features) is no help either

Forgot to mention that the Tramonts are 3-piece. Don't know if that has any effect on the weight (either positive or negative).

My fronts are 8.5" wide and my rears are 11". That could explain the weight difference between your fronts since the lobsters are 8".

Hello, Pete...

Wheels are nice, but could you tell me where you got that awesome spoiler? My ride is a C4S 6-sp MT ('12), and i was hoping to upgrade the pop-up spoiler to "Turbo" look, like yours. Not a fixed one, but being able to manually raise and lower, if possible.

All the bodywork on my silver car is RUF and I modified the normally fixed RUF bi-plane wing to be active Aero with hydraulics.

I did a TT decklid conversion on my wife's pink pearl car with normal active Aero and the console button can also activate it just like the normal flip up wing does. Her bumpers are Vorsteiner.
