    WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    I have never seen this wheel in person but I have heard alot of good things about them, any thoughts? I am ready to order a set of custom wheels but I just cannot decide on what wheels i should get and maybe you guys can help me out. I have seen the Techart 20s in person and i think it is way too big and I always prefer to get wheels that have lip. Here is the link to what the WORK RXX wheel looks like on a 997:

    I am planning to order a set of this wheel with black center. What you all think? Any other wheels you guys can recommand? Buying a set of wheels is not cheap and I want to buy the one that look the best. I am planning to order in the next couple of days, so any input will definitely be appreciated. ThankS!!!

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    You might want to take a look at Champion Motorsports forged 19" wheels. I have them on my M3 (RG4) - they are very high quality and have a polished lip.

    ..but I ordered XRR's for my April build 997

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    How much do they weigh? I just bought a set of Kinesis F110 from Wheel Enhancement and spent some time exploring with them the lighest forged wheels that they sell. If this is of interest to you they are Kinesis, Champion, Sport Techno and Fiske, I believe in that order. The fronts ranged from 18 - 21 lbs (19 x 8/8.5) and the rears ranged from 20 - 22 lbs (19 x 11) as compared to OEM's of about 24 lbs (f) and 28 lbs (r).

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    Work wheels are one of the best out there. Very high quality and they weight much less than the usual "tuner" wheels. Champions, Kinesis and Fiske are also pretty good choices.

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    I've been told that at least the Champion and Kinesis are manufactured at the same plant in Japan. The maufacturing process utilizes an uncommon 8000 lb. press for a very high strength/ low weight product.
    Champion is going to release their revised RS98, which is currently their lightest. The new wheel will shave maybe another 3/4 to 1 lb.

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    Personnally, I believe that an understated look is best -but that's subjective. I'd go for as light/strong as possible.
    The torx fasteners on the wheels you posted add some weight.

    Do a search for Red911's wheel posts. Great pics.

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    It is a Black Coupe and I can't wait to order my wheels but there are too many options out there that is vitually giving me a headache. Ok, What you all think look the best on a Porsche: 5 Spoke or some other kinda wheels?

    Re: WORK RXX wheel on 997?

    My boss' boss' boss' went with black Techarts on his black cab (with blk top).
