Mystery porsche wheels, know what they are?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

This is my first post, I got my first 911 only a few days ago and I love it.  The previous owner told me the wheels on the car are old and rare forged porsche wheels but didnt know much more about them since it was the first owner (the one before him) that had them installed...    Does anyone know if they are indeed oem Porsche wheels and if so what model or style they are?

 

They are 19's, thanks!!

Thanks Creekman, I wanted a c4s at first but when I saw this one in the metal I had to have it. 996.2 Black on black, stiff chassis option, sport seats, 6 speed, evo v-flow intake and lowered suspension 🙂

I am surprised that with all this historical talent on this forum someone hasn't identified your wheels.  I guess that makes them all the more rare and unique.  They look right for your car, good off-set, 19's add to the look and they have a clean design.  What are the tire sizes?  

 

I'm a wheel guy, I think the right wheel can make the car.  Here's mine...  285's and 305's X 19"UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_324a.thumb.jpg.099285814f09f73a2882c665bdfb3dc4.jpg

Those wheels look excellent on that c4s, classy yet aggressive, very nice. And can you tell me the name of that little lip around the stock wing? I quite like it.

 

 

I'm not sure about the width of the rims but the tires currently installed on them are 235 and 275 section.  not the fattest tires but I do like a bit of sliding action on the road 🙂

 

I will look into Rays wheels and see if I find a match!

I think I may have found them.

The color and sizes don't really match from what's availble on their website but the shape and lip are pretty much spot on..  I'll have to make sure when I take a wheel off the car but I don't want to do that just to see..  when I do (probably not going to be soon as brakes and tires are new) I'll make sure to report back just for archiving purposes.

 

 

Edit:

I'm not so sure it's them.. the part of the wheel next to where the spokes end on the barrel seem different.. **** these are a real head scratcher.  I might take one off just to check, this is bugging me.

Fire Max - 

Scott from Renegade got back to me, here's what he had to say:

 

Mitch...
 
I don’t honestly.  I know that Sam did one on his rear deck of his 996 as well, but I don’t think it came through our camp.  Sorry buddy...
 
I looked around on the Internet for this piece.  This was all I found on Pintrest.  I don’t have an account so I can’t get in to see it closer.  Hopefully you can send this to him and that might help a little:

Thank you for trying to find out Creekman!  I greatly appreciate that you took the time to help me 🙂

 

It seems like this is another mysterious part... weird.

 

I checked 996 parts on ebay just for fun and spotted the same little spoiler on a diffuser's listing images.  I asked the seller about it and he just told me the spoiler was 295$ plus shipping but he didnt have a listing or any info about

it 😕 Anyways, I think I'm better off keeping the car mostly stock, but thanks again Creekman.

 

 

 

I still haven't got to remove a wheel to check for the rims.. tbc

Fire Max,

 

I missed giving you all the information, I still don't know where you can purchase it, but it looks like you've cooled off on it anyway.  I'm sure this is the same as mine...
