I alway think that a set of CCW c-14s or Finspeeds look like they mean business. Love the BBS cup wheels for a 996 cup. Powderhound had some for sell don't know if he still does.

I really like some of the HRE variants, 3 piece or 1. I also like the BBS 3 piece mesh wheels.

Wheels are so much based on preference and cost. I like my 3 sets but my favorite wheels I could never justify the cost.
I have forgestar cf10, ccw c10 corsair, and oz racing alleggerita.

my favorite wheel though is forgeline vx1. They are about 7k a set though.

If you need aggressive looking wheels AND they must be relatively lightweight then HRE's R101's are the right wheels for you.

They come in 18" or 19" and in whatever widths and offsets you choose. HRE's engineers can also pick the perfect offset for you if you wanted to leave it in their hands. The finish is also completely up to you. These wheels are fully forged and completely custom built to your specs.

Best of all, they are track focused and can be used as daily drivers as well.

^ yes and they are also $8000. Hard to justify on a 40k car.

OP never made any mention about budget constraints. Just showing him the top option that comes to mind within his listed requirements

I'm never sure what 'aggressive' means to other people. To me, it's more like a race purpose look.

IMO, the classic racing look for Porsches is the BBS with platinum mesh and visible fasteners. Significant others seem to always hate the color. (borrowed image)

There is a wheel thread here that has about 50 million wheels pictured that you can search till you're blue in the face. Good luck....

I love my Forgelines. You can get them in a true 3-piece or one piece, all fully forged t-6061 barrels. Most race cars are running Forgeline wheels also. They are expensive but you pay for what you get. I do have a hard time spending big money on wheels like HRE when only years ago they were half price. Makes no sense.
