    It should be in the driver's manual.

    Does anyone here own a 991 GT3 RS?   indecision

    Thanks, you were really helpful. Replies like this one make me come back to RT every day indecision

    I have to pick the car (and the driver's manual) from Munich in a couple of days. It's getting colder by the day so I wonder if I should put winter tires immediately.

    Btw, the car is white, brand new and fully loaded indecision

    Weather should stay somewhat stable until early next week but after that... Smiley

    Winter tires could be a good idea, especially if you drive you car back home.

    You should make winter wheels arrangements prior to pickup because especially now, winter wheels could be difficult to get.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I think you misunderstood my reply. 

    I was just kidding indecision 

    I wouldn't even think to drive the car in winter conditions without winter tires. I couldn't find any official tire recommendation but now that people here confirmed it, I will order a set at my local dealer.

    Porsche never mentions GT3 (RS) in their winter tire offerings in the Tequipment catalog. It seems that I should order the 20-inch Carrera S winter wheel-and-tire set painted in Platinum (satin-matt) Front axle:8.5 J x 20 RO 51 with 245/35 R 20 91V M+S tires, RA:11 J x 20 RO 52 with 295/30 R 20.

    According to the weather forecast, early next week will be OK for a trip from Munich to Switzerland and Italy. Not the best season to explore a GT3 RS but hey...I shouldn't complain much.

    When I looked, Porsche Switzerland wanted 11k CHF for a set 

    I could buy them from California (originally from Germany), Fedex them to CH, pay all the stupid taxes and still save 25%

    I suggest trying to get a deal from the dealer.

    My OEM winter wheel set for the 991.1 GTS C4 Cab was 7600 EUR.

    Looked on eBay and found the same set for 6000 EUR (OK, slightly used...like 500 km or so...but still).

    Told my parts guy at the dealership that I found a set on eBay for 6000 and if he can match this price, I will order it from him. Two days later, I had the set on my car.

    Talk to the dealer... I do not know his invoice price but I am pretty sure that he pays less than 6000 EUR for this set.

    Thanks, much appreciated. When I asked the local dealer they had no idea. I will just give them the part number.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    If the local dealer is an official Porsche dealer (Munich?), he should be ashamed. Takes only a minute to find that information in the system.

    I am in the happy position that my wife hates driving. Meaning: I get to do all the driving. I would never get along with a female car nut. Also, nobody wants to have me in the passenger seat, I have to comment all the time on the driving. Smiley

    Brilliant Kobalt! Are you staying for the trackday tomorrow? I'm thinking of coming over.

    My friend in his green RS (LU 911 001) is there today, you might have seen him too.
