    Hi Jim,

    I was doing a search and came across your posts about Speedlines. I wanted to take my Speedline center caps off my wheels and replace them with caps with the Porsche crest. Which factory or aftermarket caps fit the 18" Alessios'? I'm going to take the Speedlines off and rotate them with a set of 17" Ruf wheels so it would be a good time to change them out. I called the usual places and they had no clue about fitment. Thanks in advance.

    thanks!!! I appreciate. I'll have to decide what I want to do. If they don't fit my car I'll just return them to him and save up to buy a set from you.

    They do appear to be in good condition assuming you like black. I did an all black set of Daytona wheels last year for a 964 narrow body car with fender flares added and they came out stunning.
    Used wheel sets are really hard to value as there are surprises once purchased, so I tend to always buy as low as possible. Most used but not destroyed sets I figure are $1500 - 2500. What has happened before is guys have bought sets and then found out they needed to be resized to actually fit and need a complete restoration and when you add in that cost it is usually better to buy a set from me custom sized for your car. I do have Daytona centers and other parts necessary to build sets of wheels. My Daytona sets have a price range of $4100 - 4300 depending on exactly what I am building the set to fit.

    thanks for the quick reply. they really do seem to be in good shape and I know the owner. he said I could put them on my car and if I didnt like them I could return them. what do you think a set of these is worth?

    ? was wondering if you could help me out. I am thinking of purchasing these wheels and tires from my 996 turbo s. owner says they are techart speedline daytonas and I just wanna make sure. I thought I would ask you since you seem to be the man!!!) any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    also do you restore them??? just wondering how much you might charge. these are in great shape. just a couple small scratches no apparent rash. just looks like they got dinged while moving. I included a link to my dropbox thanks

    Hi Jim,
    I am in the process of refinishing my 993 targa speedline wheels. I need to replace quite a number of rim bolts and nuts. I came across a few message postings indicating that you may know some sources/solutions for replacing the corrossion prone rim bolts and nuts (29 pair per wheels). Would you please let me know if there's any good suppliers for these items?

    Bjorn Kaul -- send me a picture at my regular email address. I had some the looked like Pole Positions - they were white fiberglass with new red leather. [email protected] jim

    Hey Jim,

    i recently purchased a used set of the same pole position "like" seats but have absolutly no idea what brand they are. Plus they came with a RECARO Profi SPG cover so they look remarkably real.
    Do you know who made them?

    Sorry I do not have any spare Speedline 3.6 Turbo wheels. I do have two RH wheel centers that I can refinish to look like Speedline wheels. When I refurbish RH wheels I open up the lug nut area to resemble more closely the Speedline wheel centers and then I paint with the same paint I do Speedline wheels. [email protected] Jim
