I have a freshly refurbished set of 18" MY02's which I intended to fit to my 993, however I've decided to stick with my Speedline Splits for the time being.

They are IMO one of Porsches (manufactured by BBS) finest looking single piece wheels with the added benefit of being the lightest.

PM anytime if interested.

I'm going to start looking out for a set of LM type wheel, ideally gold centred.

Probably a good idea to contact Chris.

Perfect staggered set of LM's here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Orig-BBS-LM-087-088-LeMans-5x130-8J-u-9-5Jx18-fur-Porsche-/302360906854?hash=item46661d4c66:g:sVkAAOSwhQhY1~OS

I bought my Gold Centred Speedlines from this seller and can vouch for their great service and amazing attention to detail on their wheels. Thumb

Top wheel, I think I came across those. Might be a bit rich compared to the cost of the car but I guess they hold their money? Is 8 and 9.5 correct on n/b?

The seller said that set is for 964 but has another for 993. He might mean these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302372689268 ? Can you have 9 on the front without rubbing the arch?

9" Fronts won't do a NB 993 any favours in the way of steering feel & weight IMO.

The original set I posted are perfect for a NB 993 and 9.5" Rears are fine, particularly with that slightly more aggressive offset which counteracts the 0.5" extra of an OEM RS Wheel in comparison.

Ok thanks, I have good set of 225/40/18 off the front of my turbo, would they fit 9.5 or 8 you think?

225/40/18 perfect for the Fronts. 265/35/18 for the Rears. Thumb

They also have a set not refurbed which are 8,5x18" et56 and 10x18 et 50.

Am I right thinking these rears will have a deeper lip(deeper as et comes down)?

Probably yes, however ET50 Rears will require some serious arch rolling to fit a NB993. I'm running 10jx18" ET59 and my arches needed tickling to stop contact at full compression.

OEM NB RS Speedline is 10jx18" ET65 and you'll probably get away with about 4mm either way without any issues (ET61 to ET69).
On a 9.5jx18" you have a few extra mm to play with, so around ET54 to ET70'ish as there is more room towards the arch (outwards) than the inside strut & suspension components.

HTH.

Yeah that does thanks.

So as you say the first set you mentioned will be best fit.

I'm waiting on some prices from Exel wheels regarding painting sport classic II to gold which will be a fit off a narrow body car. I have seen some rough ones from a C4 on eBay but they look to be wider unless the chap has measured them wrong.

So much research for a car I don't own yet but I'm hopeful ppi won't show anything nasty.

Anyone want to buy a lovely turbo x50? Grin

Sport Classic is a nice looking wheel, however bear in mind that the Rears are about the same weight as an 18" Solid Spoke, so they're not light.

Good luck finding what works for you. Thumb
