    Re: Where'd The Lobster Forks Come From?

    Sad thing about the re-done turbo wheels? When stock they are AT LAST painted perfectly for hiding brake dust. (yes: we should all have PCCBS..., blah blah blah).

    I "never" wash my wheels anymore!

    Brake-dust-insanity-wise? I feel awful for this guy (pic below). Let's take up a collection to get him some PCCBs:

    Re: Where'd The Lobster Forks Come From?

    I agree with those who love the "lobster forks". Porsche wheels have always struck me as somewhat unique and "Porsche", from Fuchs to the Turbo wheels of the 993/996 and including the lobster forks. As has already been pointed out, the Carrera Classic and new (997.2) Carrera S wheels are generic and dull, while the sport design and 997 Turbo wheels are over-designed and too busy.

    As for non-19 incher's, I think the Cayman wheels are very nice and the current 997.2 standard wheels are hideous.

    The GT3 wheels have always been great looking. Now, for me, they are the most unique "Porsche" wheels available, and look very sporty.

    Re: Where'd The Lobster Forks Come From?

    These were the best looking after market wheels on a 928 imo, unfortunately they do not make them anymore and are very rare.

    Re: Where'd The Lobster Forks Come From?

    Well, additionally, I love the fact that the lobster forks are symmetrical, wherease the 997tt wheels and the 996tt wheels weren't. I always found that strange, and it has always bothered me since I discovered it...

    I also loved the lobsters. Very unique.
