    19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    I just got the order guide for MY 2009 Turbo (Sweden). It states an option for 19" RS Spyder wheels. Does anyone have a clue what this will look like? Sounds cool! Price ca 4000 EUR.

    This might give you an idea:

    someone find some pics!!!

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    anything would look better than the current TT wheels...

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    WOW! Those wheels would REALLY look good on the Turbo! That was a good move on Porsche's part!

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    I like my stock turbo wheels. The RS Spyder wheels remind me of my wife's 2003 m3's wheels. Nice.

    Do I see another set of wheels in your future Jason?

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    Which are these?

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    I am also hoping that the RS Spyder wheel is lighter than the standard Turbo wheel. Could it be a magnesium wheel?

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    Ralf,
    Is that swedish MY09 price list in PDF form? If so, you can post it here since that wheel option is not in current MY09 997 Turbo German price list.

    My HRE P40's.

    When I did my feedback for Porsche after my Turbo purchase I told them that I had bought some P40's before even taking delivery as I thought the standard Turbo wheels completely spoilt the whole look of the car.

    Perhaps they actually listened!

    Wow, this to me would be by far the best option, better than any after-market choices, including my HRE P40. One of the main reasons I got interested in the P40 was that it looks similar to the RS Spyder wheel. I like to think my car has some racing "pedigree." Now Porsche is offered the real thing at a very reasonable cost.

    I hope it is forged aluminum and light. If so, no question it should be every wheel connoisseur's (LOL) number one choice.
    BTW, the RS Spyder wheel is made by BBS.

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    The order list I received was just a print-out of every possible option for the MY09 997 TT with the price next to it. I have asked the dealer to check what this option exactly means and what the wheels will look like.

    Maybe...

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    The Spyder wheels (7 split spoke) look somewhat similar to the Champion RS171's (5 split spoke) and the HRE P40's. I still like the 171's better.

    When I bought the 171's it was because of the look but I'm finding that they are the easiest wheel to clean too. The small # of spokes without crevices makes cleaning the outside of the wheel really easy & the wide open spoke design makes cleaning all the way to the inside of the wheel simple.

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    FWIW, here's the BMW version.

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    what about neez?

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    The RS Spyder wheel for the Turbo will have a centre bolt and can be delivered from week 49 according to the order guide!

    Yes, available from December production.
    Order code 422 price Euro 2.950 without local VAT. I do not like the way they look...

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    i love the RS wheels

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    It would be very similar to the Manthey wheel then. Don't know what the disadvantage/advantage for daily usage is, but the central bolt is TOTALLY cool!
    The cost per KresoF1 is too reasonable. Love it so much I would most definitely wait for this option were I to order a Turbo now. To me, this, touchscreen navi, and bluetooth/ipod capability are the only 3 pluses of the facelift Turbo.

    The main questions now are how they are made (forged vs. cast), what they are made of (magnesium vs. aluminum), and their weights.

    Enclosed picture from my collection, the hundreds of pictures that I collected during my wheel selection process-LOL, doesn't seem so long ago. This is among the few ones that "inspired" me to go HRE P40.

    Again from my "collection." Trust me I've looked at these few pictures MANY MANY times.

    The racing "pedigree" is real. From a Cup car I think:

    Re: 19" RS Spyder Wheels for MY 2009 Turbo?

    And my HRE P40, the "imitation."
