Volk TE37 Ultra's on a GT4.
 
Hey guys. I've always had Volk's on my cars and am quite fond of them. I've bounced around the idea of installing a set of TE37 Ultra's onto my GT4 however I don't believe there is a GT4 out there with a set of these wheels. At this time the Ultra's are only available in 20" and in Blue/Bronze. According to my dealer the TE37 Ultra's are offered in the following sizes for Porsche's:

Front: 20x9 +45 5x130 PCD (Face 1 - Flat Face)
Rear: 20x11 +50 5x130 PCD (Face 3 - Concave)

There is also a 20x12 +58

Stock OEM Wheel Sizes:
Front: 20x8.5 +61
Rear: 20x11 +50

Mackin Industries (Volk Distributor) assures me that the Ultra's clear Ceramic's however i've been told that before just to find out the inner barrel makes contact with the caliper... Im a little skeptical.

Here is what the exact wheels look like on a 991.

Thoughts? MSRP for the wheels are under $4500 and these are Forged Monoblocks.

I've always been a fan of the te37. I think they would look great on the car

zmon 06-21-2016 12:11 AM

ive wanted these on a car and think they would look really good on the GT4! wish they offered or could make a 19

johnr265 06-21-2016 12:12 AM

I had TE 37 for my 996 GT3 over ceramics but I think those were 18s!

zmon 06-21-2016 12:22 AM

You can but Volk will require many orders to make the mold for it...

They did the same for us S2000 owners a few years ago.

You guys think the fronts are a little to aggressive?

IMHO the 45 offset on the fronts is going to be too much.

This is the only example i can find on a 981 Cayman/Boxster.

The fronts are not going to work. They are 1/2" wider so 12.5mm / 2 + 16mm more offset = 22.5mm further outside. Definitely isn't room for a 22.5mm spacer up front...

According to the Rays website, 19" TE37 Ultra in 5x130 is?will be available.

Very nice.

Sent an email to Mackin Industries regarding fitment. Fronts are on the aggressive side. (20").

That really isn't going to tell you anything due to the different suspensions involved. For an example offset fitment reference look here.
