    GT2 wheels

    Anyone got a photo of the new GT2 wheels yet? TIA

    Re: GT2 wheels

    They're the same as the RS/GT3 wheels.

    Re: GT2 wheels

    Jason,
    Do the GT3RS wheels you have take the same size 19" tires from the Turbo? Or is the back wider?

    How much does the set of 4 cost?

    Re: GT2 wheels

    Gregg,

    Yep, the Turbo tires work perfectly on the RS wheels. It could probably take the 325 Cup tires that's on the GT2 but I'm not sure if that'd fit under the Turbo fenders. Probably but I'm not gonna try and find out.

    You should be able to get a set for about $3500-$4000 from Wheel Enhancement or even Sunset Porsche.

    Thanks, hope I'm not jacking the thread here, I would love to see some pics too. I think I know the Champion wheels that I want but considering all options still which includes the GT2/RS wheel.

    Plenty of pictures on my site:

    Re: GT2 wheels

    Jason, are these wheels lighter than the stock ones?

    They're heavier, but not by much.

    The engineers amongst us would differ on the "not by much" statement - something to do with rotational mass. Anyway, since the GT3/GT2 wheels are an inch wider in the rear and are cast, not forged, they do weigh more. All 4 GT3/GT2 wheels about 110 lbs, the TT wheels about 103 lbs, the Carrera S wheels about 100 lbs and Champion and other monobloc, forged wheels about 85 lbs. For the racers, lighter and forged are better.

    Absolutely, but I wasn't thinking in terms of unsprung weight, but simply stated the difference in mass. Then again, all factory wheels are heavy and it is very unlikely that you would notice the very small difference in weight, especially on the road.

    Re: GT2 wheels

    I agree - I'm not one of the engineers - not that I doubt the science of unsprung weight - I have GT3RS wheels on my TT. I'm still surprised that Porsche put the heavier, cast wheels on 3 of their top performance cars (GT3, GT3RS, GT2).

    It was the same with the 996 series. The Turbo had the hollow wheels while the GT2 used the solid boat anchors.
