I don't know how good these wheels are or how well they will hold up but I sure like the looks of them. I would LOVE to put these on my EURO85 and I might just do that. The wheels are sad and the tires are dry rotted on that car so it does need BOTH! Unfortunately it also needs a pretty much complete paint job...though I could get away with about 1/3rd of the car being painted. We will see...

Here is the link to the company that does the wheels and a pic of the ones that I like:

Sorry James, I don't like them. Not on a 928 anyway. That's just me though.

I bought the turbo twist off of Malcolm aka(the flyin' scotsman) Rennlist.
Between those and the Cup rims that I have, I haven't seen any that I like any better.

Rick,
No worries, the offset won't work anyway...

SO, instead, the EURO85 will have Carrera Lightweight 5 spoke wheels (from the '02 and up 996) and they will be painted like these... Gloss black with a pretty gloss guards red lip! Should be SO NICE! I have ALWAYS had a thing for these wheels, so I am SO GLAD I will finally have a set!

I'll hold off judgment until I see pictures with them on the car. :D

Rick,

They will either be SUPER COOL and LOOK SUPER COOL or be a total disaster! LOL!

Here is a shot of what they will look like, but the silver lip will instead be guards red. Now, that said, the wheel in the pic also has a silver inner rim hoop, that will be black on my wheels. Only the rim from the tire to the part with valve stem will be red. The other way you see them is just with that outside most part colored and that is just to little for me...if you are going to go to the trouble do it right and put a little bit of color on those wheels!

;)James, Rims are fairly personal, if you like them, just go with them. Don't put to much weight into what others want for your car. It's your ride. I Just went with what we like-the classic, Fikse FM5's. T

TONY!!! Welcome to the 928OC forum! So glad you are here my friend!

Hey, did you see that the D/FW crew is coming down to see us on the 8th for 2nd Saturday?! BE SURE to come up (even if the car is not ready, but man I am SURE hoping it is!)

I agree with you on the wheels. If I were really looking for the perfect offset and to save weight and have high strength I'd love the FM5's, but really my fav looking wheel is the 996 Lightweight that I went ahead and bought!
