which rims do you like...

I have had the RH 3 piece rims for over 10 years now and love them. I have a friend who is looking to get rid of his CCWs for a really good price. I am thinking about taking them from him. What do you guys think. Which rims you like better. I have to get a spacer to pull the rear rims out alittle further so look past that.
Thanks John

Defiantly the RH 3 piece rims.
Why not get the centres color coded or maybe black.

First set looks better to me. The second set is not wide enough for the back. My 2 cents

RH's all the way

agreed, 930s demand dish

before I saw the CCW's I was thinking yeah I'll prob think the CCW's are better - until I saw which ones they were. Some CCW's rule, just not those 8-).

too flush, and too modern looking for the car

Neither - unless your name is Snoop Dogg, Jay Z or Vanilla Ice (that one's for you, Paulito)!

The first set look great. What are the sizes and what tires are you running?

RH, by far. The 3.6 Speedline design is one of the most beautiful of all time for the 911 body (the others being the Ruf wheels and of course the original Fuchs).

It you don't want to re-do the RH wheels with wider barrels to achieve deeper dish (particularly in the rear) then add a set of spacers/adapters to the rears to bring the wheels further outboard. Your car would look a lot better that way.

Here's how those wheels look redone with one inch wider outer rim halves with no spacers and 315/30 Pirelli's on the back.

Jim

what a beaut you've made there - you don't often (enough) share pics of yer heap, you don't

say... how about some that don't make me look like a confuze'd dog whilst trying to drool over them maybe? 8-)

yeowzerz... stunning. Such a sucker for the blues, I am...

the added 1" deep barrels are certainly full of win!

The RHs are basically the same look as the stock 94 turbo rims. Why would you say that.
I agree with everyone. The RHs are and always will be one of my favorite rims on a widebody 911.
I guess after having them so long I though I would change it up. I guess not.

The tires are 225/40/18 front and 275/40/18 rear. I need tires and I have to get wider for the back .
Thanks for the replies
