GT3 Wheels

Recommended Posts

All,

Looking for some help here. I bought a GT3 whose original owner put aftermarket Champions on it. At some point, the Champions were replaced with GT3 design wheels. Unfortunately someone failed to notice that they are GT3 look wheels with widths/offsets for wide body cars (8J x 18 & 11J x 18). Any assistance in helping my dealer source these wheels would be great. Hoping someone replaced their stock wheels and has them sitting around

Thanks!!

Thanks Loren. I worked with wheel enhancement when I traded in my stock wheels on my '01 C4 Cab for Sport Classics. They are a great resource. Unfortunately they were only offering about 1K trade in and the correct GT3 wheels were well over 6K for the set. (Good price considering what Porsche quotes, which is 2400 a corner via Auto Atlanta or Pelican) The dealer understandably doesn't want to spend new wheel money on an 8 year old car and I can kinda understand that. Ironically I COULD put the incorrect GT3 wheels on the Turbo Cab and ditch the spacers on the rear wheels, putting the Sport Technos on the GT3, but I would still be too narrow in front and the GT3 would look weird. I am almost thinking of going with an aftermarket set that is at a palatable price for him, looks good, and reduces weight at the corners... besides size/offset, is there any spec or rating that I should look for? There are, as you know, tons of manufacturers and the prices go from sublime to the ridiculous so it's pretty confusing. any help is welcome...sorry for the ramble, I just want to get the car right and complete the dealer-owes list. Thanks!

Mu 996 GT3 also had Champion aftermarket when I acquired it. I sold the Champions and purchased a used set of stock GT3 wheels, only cost me about $1000.

All- Thanks for the help. Issue ended up solving itself. The GT3 was in an accident (turned out the THIRD one not the second) and though the external damage looked pretty fixable, the unibody was messed up as well bottom of car went one way and the top the other (kind of a twist to the body) and it wasn't cost effective to repair. I just received the replacement I purchased (few more miles, fewer options but WITH AirCon, and much better maintained) has the correct wheels, HA! Dealer even sprung for the 400 bucks to replace the lip spoiler because he didn't like that the original was dinged up.

      So i've been ordering my filters through suncoast porsche for a long time now, but i figured i would take a chance on one of my amazon orders. Here are some comparison shots:



      The short of it....looks like Mahle is one of the OEM suppliers of this filter. In case anyone was looking to save a few bucks. I change mine every 5-10k so i buy several a year. for 13 bucks and change.

      Hi,
      Hopefully an easy question:
      Will an '01 S stock exhaust fit and '03 S? Looks like it should, but I thought I'd make sure.
      Thanks.
