Turbo Twist Wheels 88 928 S4 was created by PCA0891
I am wanting to upgrade my stock chrome slotted wheels to a Turbo Twist style . Thinking of a 17" or 18"s. Who might be the best source for these wheels? Or just maybe someone has set of this style they would be interested in selling. I am slowly going through and upgrading my new toy step by step and now I'm here. Once again the OC is great to Me!!!

Thank You in Advance

Or if by chance does someone have a set they may be interested in parting with? I am at the low end of the 928 learning curve so if anyone can shed some light on the best rubber combination for a spirited style driver I would be grateful.I recently purchased this Black beauty and I have been going through it bit by bit.

Thanks in Advance The OC has been great to me!!!

Personally, I don't think the Turbo Twists do as much to update the overall appearance on later cars as they do the pre-MY87 cars. I do like the wheel style though.

I am with Malcolm and Austin, those CIII wheels Malcolm have are some of the best fitting wheels for a 928 actually too!

You know, I kinda had my heart set on the Turbo Twists but after looking at a few different combinations I agree with you all on the CIII wheels. They do look a lot better. So with that I will try to hunt down a set of 18"s. Is anyone aware of a resource for possibly used or re-finished CIII wheels? My checkbook nor my wife will ever let new be an option. And lastly. I continue to be grateful for all of your sincere feedback with many of my very newbe questions! I sincerely hope to meet some or all of you in the future. Even if it means a drive cross country!

Many Thanks
Robert

CIII and the CLW are probably some of the best options.

These guys are a good source. wheeldynamics.com/porsche_wheels.php

Ah, the sleeper. Something tells me this might be a harder impression for a 928 to make than it would for say.. an early Japanese four banger. ;)

You'd be surprised how many people DON'T know what a 928 is. Almost everyone I come across thinks it's a 944 or a variant of it.

I even had some guy telling me about his 944T only to be really surprised when I corrected him about my car not having a four-cylinder. It was kinda awkward after that!

I have found a set of CIII wheel used at a good price. Will an 18X11 fit on my car? I have not had any luck with 10s.

Thanks Robert

I like the TTs on early cars too, updates them nicely, I love the Carreras more though, but those do not have a high enough offset for an 83, at least I have not found any that do.

Michael, the CIII's certainly do and even the CLW's can work on SOME cars.

The 10" should fit fine the 11" should be a tight squeeze... Not sure why you have had problems with 10" CIII's...they normally bolt right up.
