    New member with Rennworx wheels

    Hello everyone. I've been monitoring this forum for about a year. I've been waiting until I got my new wheels before I joined so I'd have something to post. I just got a set of Rennworx RSL wheels mounted last week. Here's a picture of my car, an '05 C2S, Slate Gray/Cocoa.

    Looks like the BBS racing type rim without the deep dish effect.

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    very nice

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Welcome, nice car, and the wheels looks just nice!!!

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Killer. They remind me of the BMW M3 CS wheels, which are the best looking (IMO) factory supplied wheels on a car sold in America. The spokes on yours are a bit wider. Looks wonderful

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Welcome beautiful car, it looks great in that color. Very nice rims also.

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Very nice rims!

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Thanks for the compliments. I like the 14-spoke style a lot. Some of my favorite cars have a similar design. Off the top of my head: 997 Cup Cars, LMP2 RS Spyder, Ferrari Stadale. Plus these wheels are forged aluminum, so they are really light. When I picked up the wheels at FedEx I weighed them. The rear wheel (11 x 19) weighs 22.85 lbs. The fronts (8.5 x 11) are 19.55 lbs each. I also weighed the 5 titanium lug nuts and they came out to be .65 lbs. I estimate the total weight savings over stock to be around 14 lbs. Anybody know the weights of the Carrera S wheels?

    Here are the weights for the S and Classics:

    S F 22-4 R 27-12
    Classics F 23-10 R 28-11

    I have Champion RS97's and the weights are:

    F 19-2 R 19-8

    Re: New member with Rennworx wheels

    Your rear wheels are really light. Another one of my favorite style wheels is the TechArt Daytona(?), but I remember reading that they weigh a ton. I wonder what the lightest weight 19 inch wheels are? FM 110's, Champion's? I know the BBS Manthey wheels are really light but they only come in 18 inch.

    Thanks for the compliment. I like those M3 wheels too. I think the M3 wheels are 16 spoke and HRE makes a similar style. HRE C20's were my second choice to the Rennworx. Are there any pictures of that combo out there? I saw the 18 inch version on a 996 GT3 RS. You wouldn't think there's a significant difference between how 18 and 19 inch rims look, but there is.

    Where are Rennworx wheels available?

    There are one of the few non OEM wheels that I have seen on the car that looks great.
