    New wheels

    I just replaced my 19" Sport Design wheels with 19" Kinesis F110. I purchased the Kineses wheels with Michelin tires. I want to sell my 19" Sport Design and was wondering if there is a place to post for sales on this site or any other site with high Porshce traffic. My OEM wheels are pristine condition with Pirelli tires and had exactly 2933 miles on them when I took them off today. I see them for sale on ebay but was wondering if anyone knew of any other sites. Also interested in opinions as to the price I should ask for the wheel/tire combo.

    I will post some pics when the weather clears a bit and I can clean the tires. Very happy with fit and finish of the new wheels.

    Re: New wheels

    Bob,
    Can you post the Kinesis wheels. I been looking at Kinesis and Champion monolite. Did you go to a 305mm tire on an 11.5 inch wheel in the rear and, if so, did you do a 8.5 inch wheel in the front?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Re: New wheels

    I got the OEM tire size - 235/35-19 (f) and 295/30-19 (r) and wheels are 8.5 x 19 (f) and 11 x 19 (r). I was told by Wheel Enhancements that Kinesis only makes an 8.5 for the front in a 19". I weighed the OEM tire wheel and compared to the Kinesis tire and wheel the OEM fronts were 47 lbs and rears were 57 lbs and the Kinesis tires and wheels were 41 (f) and 48 (r). Quite a difference.

    I will post some pics in a few days.

    Re: New wheels

    That is a significant difference in unsprung weight. Matte centers and polished, cleared lips, right!? Can't wait to see the pics.

    Re: New wheels

    30 pounds of weight reduction is impressive, nicely done.

    Re: New wheels

    This is the exact wheel that I got - silver painted center and polished outer rim with both the center and outer lip clear coated. BTW, the Porsche center cap fits perfectly into the center cap.

    Re: New wheels

    Here is a picture of the wheel on my car after the repaint and body mods. What do you think?

    Re: New wheels

    Looking good! Wheels give it a wider stance

    Re: New wheels

    I thought you were putting them on your 997.

    Re: New wheels

    Looks great. Make sure you post your 997 with these wheels.I'm torn between these and Champion's RS98.

    Bob, the wheels look great. The crests are a nice touch. very classy.

    Re: New wheels

    Do you live in Naperville? I used to live in Brookdale (a Naperville community) and your picture looks like it could have been taken in my old front yard.

    Re: New wheels

    Really close to Naperville but not in Naperville. A bit West. If you have not been back for awhile the whole area is exploding. In fact, Kendall County, is the second fastest growing county in the USA. It possesses the holy trinity of real estate development (location, location,location) and many of the major highways look like a franchise free-for-all.

    Chili should see this...

    Very nice man

    GREAAAATTTTTT

    Re: New wheels

    ebay

    Re: New wheels

    god!!!!!!!!! this wheel is really nice!!!!!!1


    how much?????

    Re: New wheels

    I absolutely love this wheel too. Red911's 997S takes on a completely different, sweet, look with these pics. Just for kicks, look at Champion's RS98 (Wheel Enhancements.com and/or Championmotorsport.com have pics.) and tell me what you think compared to this Kinesis wheel. Very similar, but subtle differences.

    Re: New wheels

    Reeeeeeeeeally nice. Clean and sharp. WOW! Makes me wonder what guys are thinking when they choose "decorative" machine screws along perimeter (unless absolutely necessary for three piece wheel perf.).

    Re: New wheels

    I called to order Kinesis F110's today and the dealer told me that Kinesis was purchased by Asanti and F110's might be discontinued. Will find out more tomorrow.

    Very upset so I might go for champions. Really a shame as Asanti is known for "blingy spinner wheels"... Very tacky...

    Up in the air between Champion RG5 or RG19's. Really wish there was a better story for F110...

    Comments would be appreciated...

    Re: New wheels

    Those wheels look really good on both cars They look very classy and not overdone at all
