Wheels - Carrera S or HRE FF01 or Vorsteiner VFF01

My car came with Carrera Classic wheels and don't personally like the design. I'm thinking of replacing them with either the OEM Carrera S wheels or the HRE FF01 or the Vorsteiner VFF101.

How does the aftermarket wheels compare with the OEM wheels?

The Carrera S wheels are made by BBS (stamped inside rather than outside on the rim as advertisement) and are comparable in weight and strength with the others. They like the HRE FF01 are cast in ways that reduce porosity and add strength; the VFF101 is advertised as "flow forged", which sounds good in any case. All are available in various colors. They all look great on 991s to me. Looking at your car pic, you could put Moon hub caps on and it would still look great.

Vorsteiner, the finish on them is great, especially the the textured finishes. I love hre wheels just not the FF wheels. You can also order a wider front and custom offsets for the vorsteiner, not sure thats the case with HRE and the FF wheels.

Got a quote for the Carrera S wheels from my dealer and the price is steep Almost $6k. I'm leaning towards the HREs, like the design better than the Vorsteiners

What wheel finish are you leaning towards? We can create a rendering for you if you prefer!

I had HRE Flow forms on my M5 and really liked them. But personally, and obviously it's more money, but I would do the P40SCs if you like that design.

Sure, the car is Racing Yellow. Looking at matt or gloss black.

Narrow bodies ET50F ET60R
Wide bodies ET50F ET35R

Spacers can be used for that flush fitment but these wheels are made to be slightly more aggressive than OEM specs, but not too aggressive to be flush with the fenders.

Here's another rendering (FF01 in Fog):

Is this with or without spacers? If I want spacers what size do you recommend? Also do the wheels come with center caps?
