Item Condition: Used

After quite a bit of mental deliberation, I've decided to part with my custom polished & powdercoated Champion RS171 wheels that I had on my RUF R-Kompressor 997. They were $6,500 new and then I spent another $1,200 having them fully polished and clear powdercoated so I have $7,700 into them and I think they may be the only set like this I've ever seen. They're the wheels I had the artist drawings of my car done with (see my avatar) which is part of the reason I wasn't sure I wanted to let them go, but could use the garage space. The clear powdercoat means they're maintenance free and will look like they do now for many years to come without having to be repolished.

Specs are:
F 19" x 8.5" et 53 with Nitto Invo 235/35 tires
R 19" x 11.5" et 62 with Nitto Invo 305/30 tires

You can purchase them with or without the tires - same price. Fronts are good for another set of rears. Rears are almost down to the wear bars, but wear is nice and even across the tire and they'll last a few thousand more miles. My car is an '05 so no TPMS sensors and no center caps included.

One front and one rear wheel have some small defects in the face of the rim where the guy at the tire shop stood them straight up and the weight of the spokes on the face caused them to fall over onto the concrete. I've included close-up pics so you can see what I'm talking about.

Front, mounted, balanced, with Nitrogen fill, metal center cap and valve stem is 43 lbs. Rears under the same conditions are 53 lbs, so these are very light and super strong, as they're a fully forged wheel. Notice the insides of the hubs are drilled to also be compatible with a H&R DRA or DRM spacer as there are pockets for the spacer mounting bolt heads (Champion makes them this way - I didn't do this) so rears could also be used on a WB car with spacers, and the cavities also make them lighter.

Price assumes a PayPal Friends & Family payment (regular PayPal add 4%), but does include shipping within the continental US.

Lots of photos from today, along with some of them mounted on my car, and the weights on the scale. I'm happy to answer any questions. Anyone who has purchased any parts from me can validate that my descriptions are extremely accurate, packaging is top-notch, and communication is excellent so there aren't any issues with the transaction.

Thanks.

Anyone knows if these will fit on a 997.1 GT3?

Yes, they will. We're running GT3 wheels on my wife's '05 997.1 c2S which is the same year and body style as my RUF R-Kompressor these were mounted on. There should be a lot more pics of my car with these wheels mounted if you follow the link in my signature to the Shutterfly album. In some of the pics they're probably in the original silver finish before I had them polished and cleared, but are the same wheels.

Here are a couple links and pics showing them on a GT3 (same widths
& offsets that I'm selling, but in their original painted finish, not my polished one):

these are the same wheels in black (from Sharkwerks' site on one of their GT3 projects) - http://sharkwerks.com/porsche/997-gt...71-wheels.html
