I believe FVD sells the faux centers for $60 each.

Question

Anyone have experience with Volk Wheels by Rays Engineering (Japanese)? I am looking at their TE37 in either magnesium or aluminum. They offer 18" custom fittments for the 993/996. The set of magnesium is around $2500.00 and weighs 14/16 lbs respectively. These are the lightest wheels I have found so far and they seem to find alof of use in FIA Rally racing.

I looked at 18" Volk wheels. They are among the lowest price and well made. (I used 15" Volks for my ITA race car) BUT...the 18" wheels I saw were one piece so if you damage them, they might be scrap. With a 3-piece Forgeline wheel, they can be fixed often.

Thanks for the tips on those centerlock caps! I'll have to get some now, the car looks really unfinished with the BBS wheels on.

Jim, where do you get those Goodyear slicks?

Danno,

I posted it on the racing page before I saw this post. I got them at Bob Woodman Tires ( <a href="http://bobwoodmantires.com/" target="_blank">http://bobwoodmantires.com/</a> ) here in Charleston, SC. He's got a division? in the south west I think also. The Pirelli slicks are another alternative and also drive great. I use them now.
