I agree, BBS's would look more historically accurate, especially the RS's, if only they came in bigger sizes than 15".

Take a look back into the past threads, there was one that went on forever, all about different wheel selections.

Okay, thanks!

Again everyone has their own opinion on what to get. I love the "anything more than 17" looks cartoonish" comments - I think it boils down to the design of the wheel.

If you want light - I would take a look at the Fikse Profil series of wheels. They build to suit and the Profil's are very light for a 3-piece wheel. Even an 18" wagon wheel ghetto ride skate like I have is under 20lbs. for an 18x11 rear.

The Profil's come in various design profiles like the Profil 10 which is similar to the FM10 that a lot of guys run, only lighter.

I personally run Fikse Profil 5S's as my backup set and ADV.1 5RS's as my primary set, BOTH in 18".

If you want my opinion - get what YOU want; not what everyone suggests.

Some good options: Fikse Profil Series: High Performance Wheels | Aluminum Wheels | Race Wheels

Forgeline: Great custom manufacturer with lots of experience in 930's: Forgeline: Welcome to Forgeline Motorsports

CCW: Custom Classic Wheel - I have used them extensively - I have a set of LM20's on my M3 right now and I have had three sets on my Supra - Complete Custom Wheel - Forged Aluminum Wheels - good manufacturer with well built wheels, but not as much options in finish and design as Forgeline. Great support though and fairly light.

Most of these guys will run you $4000-5000 for a set depending on what you do. If you want something more interesting then you're talking HRE/DPE/ADV.1 type stuff that can get pricey.

Overall, for the money, Fikse makes a great wheel that will hold up well over time and have great resale down the road if you get bored. Lots of guys like the product that Fikse makes.

You're welcome to come check out what I have sometime.

Chris.

Personally I've always been a big fan of Fikse wheels. Have been running FM-10s on my 930 for years, just ordered a set of FM-5s to freshen things up a bit... can't wait for them to get here.

Went to the Care Now on 377 in Keller last week. It was pretty so I drove my 930 to make myself feel better. Snapped this pic:


Those are ADV.1 5RS's. The R-series wheels are specific purpose built for road racing or whatever you're going to use it for. The hardware is exposed and the wheel is built to be broken down easily for rebuilds. They are also a little beefier barrels to withstand more abuse on a road course. ADV.1 - Features: R Series

I also have a set of Profil 5S's coming as I ordered those 3 weeks ago.

Chris.

Just about anything else out there is lighter. No shortage of photos on this board.

Note that on Slantnose cars that are lowered, you frequently have to run a sidewall 1 size shorter on the front wheels, ex: ---/40-series instead of ___/45-series.

Jason-

These are Fikse Profil 5's that Chris mentioned, polished lips & anodized spokes - 18x9 & 18x11.




(flash makes black look purple - they're not - well, Ronnie's are)

I'm considering going in a different direction - PM me if you might be interested in these. Thing is... I'm heading to post orifice shortly to ship out the studs for these... I'd need to hear from you as soon as possible as then I'd be keeping these studs. Sorry 8-/.

They're 22lbs each, and I'm running Bridgestone Potenza RE760 255/40F & 295/35R that haven't touched ground yet (2nd pic is Sumi's that I returned)...

eight six zero 490.9808

Don't know if your a member..but the ad goes like this:
Selling a set of 18" BBS E88s currently sized to fit a Cup Car
These were mounted with Wet's and have very low use
These wheels will fit either 5-lug applications or centerlocks
Looking to get $3,650 OBO

100mm studs also available

Will ship in original boxes or deliver to VIR March 8/9 or Road Atlanta April 4/5

If you are looking for a non-Cup application send ET specs you are looking for to determine fitment

Specs as follows:
All 4 centers are p/n 0288170
Painted silver
According to BBS this center is about 1lb lighter than a standard E88

Front:
10 x 18" comprised of the following:
TA40 2 x 18
TI50 8 x 18

Rear
12 x 18" comprised of the following:
TA-40 3 1/2 x 18
TI-50 8.5 x 18

Buyer pays shipping. 4 boxes estimated cost of approx $300.00



I have no affiliation just passing some info

I used to have an '87 Supra Turbo, but I traded that for an '85 944, which was my first Porsche. I'm actually interested in getting another Supra, for a reasonable price, then again I don't have any room for another car

Those wheels look pretty nice with a preferable size, but $3,650 seems a little high to me. Can't really blame them though.

was just a thought, trying to help ya

sounds like you're looking for more of the mesh / web type spokes like an FM-10 or LM then vs. a Fuchs-like 5spoke

good luck

Well, either the web-spoke wheels, or 5-spoke, depending on the type.

Fikse FM-5's on a Slant 930:


Fikse FM-10's on a Slant 930:





As an alternative... Not a Slant 930, but these are CCW LM5's:



If you're looking for something different than your RUF's now, you may want to go something like the FM-10's. The FM-5's look similar to what you have now.

Hope this helps.

Chris.
