Anyone swapped out their original RS wheels for HRE P40's and got the weights for them? Am thinking of getting a set of track wheels and the P40s are my choice if the weights are right...

The weight savings if I go with Cargraphics either in their cheaper IS-One or their forged range topping RG5s are as follows...

Front: 8,5x19

Original 11,08kg
IS One 10,50kg
RG 5 8,60kg

Rear: 12,0x19

Original: 14,56kg
IS One 13,20kg
RG 5 9,90kg


That is some serious unsprung weight saving...

Decent weight savings for sure assuming the durability is there.

supercup is on a distinguished road
I just swapped out 997 TT stock wheels for P40's - they were 4-5 lbs lighter per wheels. Stockers were 28/29 Front/rear and the p40's were 24/25 Front and rear. The rear P40's were 12" versus the factroy 11".

My understanding is the GT2/GT3 RS style wheels are about 1 lb more that stock Turbo wheels.

28lb front ? 29lb rear? I think the difference between front and rear is more

We apologize for the lack of pictures right now. We just released the program on 11/3 so we're just a few weeks in.
We are working on professional pics at this time and will post them when available.
PM me for any pricing requests. And thanks to everyone for all the orders!!!!
