    Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    I have put these rims on as I wanted to have Michelin Cups tyres to go to the track. I will take then off after.

    The Cups are  much smoother then the Pilot Sports, much more comfortable and make less noise on public roads.

    I like these black rims alot on my car. Maybe I should paint my standart Carrera rims in balckSmiley On my order I had specilied this, but then canceled it as I thaught It would be too balck.

    Does any one have a pic of a black Carrera with black rims ?

    Your pictures are sharp but not that sharp to imagine how hairy you are


    Re: Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    Very cool, but for some reason, with these wheels, I feel your car should be lowered a further 20mm, while with your normal wheels, I never noticed it...

    Maybe it's because your used to GT3 wheels perfectly filling the arches?

    I dont agree Porker, for me the height is fine. I just would think about spacers? 


    Re: Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    love black wheels,i think that also your standard Carrera rims will looks great too,but the important thing for me is the grey lip,it gives a good touch that all black hasn't

    Re: Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    I completly agree Darius. The silver bezel makes the difference! Pure black would make the rim disappear. This one looks really great!

    I took the 5 mm spacer off, as already like this, at the back in heavy corners something was touching at the beginning. But after going up and down one of ma local mountain , it does not make any noise anymore Smiley

    Porker ..........Ideally I would have the car 20 mm lower, even more with my original rims. The -20mm sports chassis is less noticeable to me on this version then on the previous .

    Re: Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    You really take beautiful photos! I love the wheels, the standard Carrera IIs looked great, these are even better.  I agree that the silver rim is important to define the wheel.

    Now you can specify the Carrera II wheels in black with the silver ring for 1.500 Euro extra.

    I have the same feeling, your C4S appeared to have the ideal rideheight, but that's nitpicking, it's an amazing car despite its SUV-height Smiley

    Great shots Gnil! I like the looks a lot. Not too black at all.

    Are the Cups not available for all rims that you had to change them?

    HAHAHA Porker you are hilarious Smiley


    Re: Pics of my black 997.2 C2S with black GT3 MKI rims

    Awesome wheels! Fits the car really nice.

    In my opinion you need both spacers and lower springs  But then again, I am addicted to these mods and probably not the right person to listen to

    Today I will put my original rims back and I will try with the 1.5 cm spacers at the back. ( I have them in my garage since many month but never tried them out )

    Yes, they are. But as my brother had these rims with the Cups on in his garage, and not using them , I took the occasion to mount them on my car. ( he uses 18'' on his Gt3 )

    Nothing wrong with Celigny..a real nice place, but as you seemed to know the graveyard so well,  I just thaught it was funny comming from someone not from this area, not even this country ! ( but then if you had to come to a funeral of a family member or dear friend , that would of been a bad comment from me ) Smiley

    Ah, I understand.
    It wasn't anything like that, but it was very considerate of you to think of it. Smiley
