    997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    I think it looks good, but personally I would never go that large.






    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    Urgh - that is horrible. Why would anyone do that? I'm an OEM guy through and through.

    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    I don't think they 20" rims help the 997's appearance. It's WAY too bling-bling, a phenomenon that should be left to the Escalades and Yukons (cars that I don't care about anyway). On a Porsche, those rims just look out of place.

    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    Raven and Barrett - I couldnt agree with you guys more - It takes away from the performance going that big

    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    Although I think the 20" are excessive I would like to see some other 20" rim styles and compare. The rims on that car just stand out too much, takes away from the rest of the car.

    There are 2 issues here: taste and performance.

    1 - Taste is personal - I personally think they are gawdy.

    2 - Performance - they are probably heavier than 19"/18" rims and, as such, will negatively impact unsprung weight. Just on that basis it should be a no-no for a true P-car driver.

    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    I used to have an E46 M3 sitting on 19" which was big enough, the ride for me was acceptable given my previous car was an Elise 111S. The Cargraphic wheels looks really brutal and too detailed - it needs the simplicity of a Turbo 2 wheels to set the shape off.

    Re: 997 C2S on 20" Wheels

    Looks sweet, but i think 19" would be as big as I would go.

    Like your fingernails on chalk board, geez!

    I look at it and cringe, just thinking about the $1000 wheel and no spare pothole penalty.

    no thanks!!
