It must just be me but I hate the twists. I had mine on a while back while waiting on a new set of rear tires for my DPEs it reminded me why I got my wheels. BBS all the way or some other mesh.

This is a tough decision. They both look good. Keep them both and change them every other month? The make Sambo horsepower and leave everyone in the dust with BBS, stock or four spare tires on the thing.

Some really good ideas and some fun suggestions/comments guys thank you. You’re really making it difficult on me. Over the past 15 years I’ve been lucky enough to do so many 996’s. And I loved every single one of them for what it is…Well, almost ha ha. There was a big music industry boom in the early 2000’s when we did some pretty funky stuff. I always get stuck between track look, factory look, being unique, aggressive, and of course clean. It gets tricky when you’re trying to maintain proper function. I think I might just go with the clean factory look and achieve that stance I’m looking for. I’ll keep the BBS or maybe get something else that’ll have a different flavor? Here’s my favorite I owned which Craig has now and took it even further. I’m always chasing the look and feel of that car. It was extremely planted and used 700 hp like no other! It went through a few renditions. I even found an old picture of when I had it on the track with Dan driving behind me in my 993TT

You could powder coat the bbs to match the darker turbo s color twist, that might looks pretty sweet. My turbo has the S edition wheels and kind of like it because it stands out a tad but at the same time the traditional oem twist color is just right. I think it’s really hard to beat the oem look.

I run hyperblack ccws soon to replaced w a flat black face.
Either way great color car 👍

Sam, let's keep things clean & elegant and go with the HRE 300 from their Classic series.

I'll work with you on a killer deal.

Nice! See how much simple stance and twists do?!
Yeah David I have always been about HRE on all my cars. This time factory look seams to be calling hard. But all the feed back is great and still about 50-50.

White is the only color that a stock 996 Turbo wheel in body color actually works.
