Got a unicorn white 996TT! Please help on wheels...

Hey guys. I couldnít resist saving my friends white 996TT from a trade-in. RosyLV. Gonna go for a clean GT2 look and 2WD. Stock GT2 wheels or BBS CH-R?

Iíve always been a sucker for the factory look and stance. Not to mention awesome track memories with one. She already has my By Design Stage 4 kit and we did s full GT interior. Now Iím already thinking to do the breaks. Finishing the body up also so it will be a pretty solid clown. The BBS are on it now and I can refinish them but Iím a sucker for that stock look. What do you guys think? Of course I will enjoy the build/ride and then pass it on to someone else like I usually do so if anyone has their eyes on it stay tuned.

I love the turbo twists. Wish they made a 19" version.

These cars have one of the best stock wheel designs out there... I have rims and I'm still a sucker for the twists

I also prefer the stock ones IF rest of the car is stock looking. I also like dark grey wheels, especially on white cars. The ones on the top picture look very, very good, so does the other ones, but they are my favourite of the ones pictured.
I also dreamt about a white 996 TT, but they are VERY rare... You are a lucky guy

I like those silver bbs wheels in the bottom picture. They look classy VS the dark wheels that are a bit more sinister. Especially on a white car. Twists are nice, but i am a brake ****, got em, you gotta show em. Besides most brake upgrades won't fit in twists.

Ditch the black. Black rims on White is played out. That car needs to speak out a little. It needs to say " Thats Sambos car ". I'm thinking Red Brushed tint HRE P40sc. Gt2 front end with match Red in louver between hood and bumper. Red logo bottom front corner of doors " Bydesign stage 4 " or something of the sort. Maybe a fixed wing with just a touch of Red on the tips or Red side view mirror mounts. Not the side mirror, just the black portion that attaches mirror. Not to much red on the exterior. A little splash of Red on the interior. Maybe seat belts or gauge faces or something. Not to much, just a little bit to tie it all in. And if your doing brakes, ditch the red calipers for Black with a custom Red logo.
Thats my take ! Regardless, awesome car Sam. I am sure it will look and run great when finished.






HRE Red Brushed Tnted P40sc

Thanks Rick. That would definitely be a bad *** car for shows and events. On this one I want to do something really clean. Every time I make up my mind someone tells me the BBS are awesome LOL. That’s what we have right now and I can refinish them or just go for the factory look. Of course I can get something else but I have to control myself ha ha.
