    BBS Wheels For Track Use

    I'm looking to buy some track specific BBS wheels for my Carrera S. I'll run them with Michelin Pilot Cup tires and was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for the best (i.e. lightest, durable etc.) BBS wheels. I'm thinking BBS because they are the most classic and if my name comes up on the list for the GT3 etc., I can still use the new wheels on a new car. Thinking the BBS RS-GT. Thoughts?

    BBS 18"/19" Racing Wheels - Aluminum

    I've got a set of 19" for my Carrera S, light/ strong and great on the track. You can customize the offsets for free when order on the above link.
    Apparently, those BBS RS-GT have same weights as the Porsche OEM ones, However they are much stronger.

    No thoughts on a specific BBS wheel, but the Sport Design

    wheels on my Club Coupe are BBS. So Porsche uses them too.

    Re: No thoughts on a specific BBS wheel, but the Sport Desig

    BBS LM's are sweet, i believe RGR is lighter than RS-GT. If you want a true racing wheel and $ is not a problem. go for BBS RE Forged Mag. Mag stands for magnesium and it's really light and strong

    Re: No thoughts on a specific BBS wheel, but the Sport Desig

    Kenesis and Fiske are other good brands for track wheels. They are also cheaper than BBS.

    Though if money is less of an object and you want truely great track wheels, I would recomend Jongbloed race wheels.

    Re: No thoughts on a specific BBS wheel, but the Sport Desig

    If money really isn't an issue then you could take a look at the magnesium wheels that BBS Racing make for Manthey.

    Oops - sorry about the massive picture...
