Wheel Help! OEM Wheel Sizes, Spec, Weights

Recommended Posts

OK..i'm trying 2 find out a couple of things.

1) are there two styles of turbo twist rims?

- it seems the turbo, c4s have a newer style than the carrera's. my 99 came with turbo twist solid spokes..but the turbo twist hollow spokes on the turbo/C4S look different. also, i think my wheels had a 993 partnumber instead of a 996.

- Can i get the turbo style HOLLOWSPOKE wheels for a narrow body and if so, what are the part numbers and sizes?

- what do they weigh?

- what is the price range for a used set? my friend told me he paid 800$ for the ones on his C4S.

these are the rims i'm talking about:

- What do these weight?

- what is the price range for a used set?

The 993 "Turbo" wheels were exactly that and the new ones are what you have correctly said (in the picture). I think the wheels are 8 and 11J front and back respectively and wear 225/40 and 295/30 tyres. You may have a problem with the narrow body (sticking out beyond the rear wing??), but someone will have to advise about that. Here in the UK, i see alot of used 'turbo' wheels on Ebay as alot of owners upgrade to aftermarket 19's, so you could get a bargin. There are also a few website that offer a good price for the new wheels (inc sport design you mention) but where you are, i dont know. I'm sure people on here will have a few contacts, if not, get searching on the www. Cant help you about the weight, sorry.......... Dave.
