i am still looking for a porchse and seen a few but with wheels not to my taste and I wanted to confirm that like with any normal alloy these can be changed easily? I am looking at C4S with original 19'' fuchs and ideally will change to turbo 1's.

is it as simple as changing them over once I find a set of genuine turbo (ot something similar) alloys and someone to remove and fit them?

Someone will probably bite your hand off for that exchange, yes it is just a simple wheel change/swap.

If you're looking at the C4S just make sure any wheels you look at have the correct offset for the widebody cars.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Turbo1 alloys so much so I got rid of mine at the first opportunity for some Carrera Sports Grin

I'd swap mine with yours, but as mine a for the narrow bodied, you'd need to run a set of spacers to get them to sit right.

i like the sports as well and will try and get out and see a few more in the flesh before i decide which to go for but they have to be genuine Porsche whatever i go for.

i didn't mean swap on monetary terms as they are far more expensive than the turbos or sports!!!

looking at the prices of genuine Fuchs they seem to command a high price which is good and should cover a new set of alternative genuine alloys and new tyres.

i will live with them for a week or two and see if they grow on me but really not a fan and think a change will be done

Where does he get those prices from
about £2000 dearer than Porsche and the porsche ones come with tyres

I was quoted £5800 inc vat for turbo 2`s from local OPC. I would imagine they are buying direct and adding some `tax`

Dont forget 10% off at an OPC on all parts if you are a PCGB member, so worth joining
