I don't know if you can get these in our required off set?
I was looking at the Fikse brand www.fikse.com/2010/index.html



What do you have and what do you like?

I like easy low maintenance, as in very easy to clean.

For the '90 GT I have turbo twists
For the '80 GT2S racecar I have Kinesis

The might be in Andrew's fitment spreadsheet:
docs.google.com/leaf?id=0BzC7nSxhlstxZjJ...=en&authkey=CK3SrvkH

As the owner is a 928 owner, you could ask him directly, no?

I have those style wheels on my GT, they are common. Some people don't like that the spokes point in opposite directions on opposite sides of the car.

I always think the wheels should be closer in width front to rear, as it is a nearly 50/50 car.

A lot of good points Stan, it is almost a 50/50 car.
I never thought about the spokes pointing forward on one side and rearward on the other . . . . . .

I will ask the owner and thanks for the link.

Mike, i surprisingly like that look with the black phone dials. I never before realized how well black wheels went with s gold car. Pretty cool.

Call me crazy but I actually think the factory flat disc wheels look great when they're polished up. They polish up great. Mine have even been mistaken for chrome before. Looks good on the Kiln Red and Ruby Red cars in particular.

Big fan of the Kinesis and Fikse wheels, expensive though, unless you find some on e-bay.

Thanks Austin. I've always liked the phone dials (one of those things that goes back to the first 928 I ever saw). I changed the color scheme of the carpet from tan/beige to grey and the wheels from badly worn anodized flat dish to the custom painted phone dials. I like the low key black/silver/grey look. The gloss black of the wheels looks pretty cool when they're all waxed up.

I agree that the black looks good in the pic above.
They just about look like the wheels have a white wall tire.
Looks classy

Thanks, white walls weren't really what I was going for, but I'll take the classy part as a compliment:). I think it all kind of fits together. At least I hope so.
