    New GT3RS wheels installed!

    I initially had put on a set of wheels from the GT3. The front wheels were the same as the stock Turbo wheels but the rears had an offset of 68mm which were quite a bit more than the stock Turbo 51mm offset so I had to use 18mm spacers to compensate. I wasn't too happy with the initial look and the car didn't feel as "tight" around the corners as I'd have liked.

    I came across a set of wheels from the GT3 RS which is a widebody just like the Turbo with wheels designed accordingly. These wheels had an offset of 51mm just as the Turbo wheels do so no more spacers would be needed. The car once feels as tight around the corners as when I first took delivery not to mention how good it looks!

    No more spacers


    Deep concave dish look

    Very happy with the latest mods!

    8? I only got two new wheels. The front wheels are the same as before. I sold the rear GT3s already. But yeah, my garage is full of wheels/tires.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    Looks great!!!

    Next time you're up north of the border drop me a PM. I'd love to see your car in person!!!

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    I'm meeting W211 Sunday up in Burnaby.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    Your car looks so much more sporty and agressive then the stock one.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    That car looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Great, I love it, perfect from the front to the end!

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    Jason, your car just keeps getting better. Love the rear shot.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    I like your car's specs. Hard to find unique looks that aren't tacky.

    Wonderful

    I can answer this for Atomic. I had been waiting for the GT3RS wheels to show up in this country, but got impatient and ordered a set from Gert at Carnewal in Belgium. I no sooner placed the order than Dave at Wheel Enhancement e-mailed me that he now had a set. Knowing Atomic was looking to replace his rear GT3 wheels, I let him know that they were available at Wheel Enhancement and he bought them. Gert is probably the surest way of getting a set, although you may have to pay more than from other sources.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    Well, Atomic, I've never liked those wheels too much, but they just look AWESOME on your Turbo. Not to mention it's combined with cobalt which, along with Basalt, is my favorite color on Turbos, AND the after market exhaust. It just looks great.

    Re: New GT3RS wheels installed!

    The wheels look great and Atomic's car sounds very mean too!
