FS: 18 996 Hollow Spoke Turbo Twist Wheels was created by Richter12x2
I've got a set of 18" 996 or 997 Turbo Twist wheels that came with the car when I bought it that I'm looking to get rid of.

These appear to be 18x8 in the front, 18x11 in the rear, with no curb rash. (The black line you see at the top is the leftover tire mounting lube that hasn't been wiped off yet, if it's important and you're interested, I'll wipe it off and take better pictures.) The rears have brand new Pirelli PZero Corsa 295/30 18s (less than 500 miles on them) and the fronts are Sunny SN3800's 225/40 ZR18s (came with the car, but good tread, so haven't replaced yet.) There is some scuffing on the passenger rear wheel, I've included some pictures of the scuffed areas.

From what I've been able to figure out, 85 and earlier cars (like mine) will require rolling to prevent the tires from rubbing in the back with the 295 aspect tires. 86 and later have more room according to the guide, so you might be okay.

They're the hollow spoke version. They're rounded on the back and stamped BBS.

Fronts are 8 and 50 next to the valve stem. The part number is 996.362.138.04

Rears, are 11 and 45 next to the valve stem (11" width and 45 offset, I'd bet). The part number is 996.363.142.03

I'd like to get $1200 for them, since that just covers the cost of the rear tires I just replaced and for that price I'll deliver them in the DFW area - or bring them to you at the Shark Breakfast. I'll also ship them however you prefer for whatever the cost of the shipping is.

I just wanted to give everyone here a shot before I listed them on eBay.

If you have any questions, just ask and I'll answer to the best of my ability. If you need the model numbers off the back, I'll do my best to get them.

Thank you!

Yup. Plus whatever shipping is, which might be a bit painful if you're in Canada, but I'd be happy to look into it for you.

I had to roll the fenders on mine to make them clear, and bump the ride height up a bit. 86 and later have more room, but from what I heard you might still have to roll the fenders to clear the 295 tires. It's not hard to do though, there's a tool that will do it for you. I did it myself with a torch and a hammer, but it's easier to mess up that way. Height-wise, there's no issues. A few of the s4 and GTS guys here are running wider tires than these, even, as wide as 315s.

According to what I'm seeing, it should be an awesome deal, too, for hollow spokes. They're just not my personal taste, and since I'm redoing the interior and the car will be laid up for a while, I thought I'd see if I could sell these and order a set of wheels more to my taste. It's tough though, because I keep getting compliments on them, and they ARE very nice. I'm just not a fan of 5 spoke wheels personally.

I'll definitely keep it in mind. I'm about to be travelling pretty consistently for a while, so there's no real rush. If I still have them in June, I'll give you a shout.

I hope you got a good price for them.
I wish I could have helped you out but decided not to roll my fenders.
