Good bye old lobster & hello new lobster

Well new one kinda looked like the lobster but in a bigger version.
Excuse my iphone pics. It was also cloudy outside. No spacer was needed b/c the offset was perfect, it sits flushed against the fenders. front 19x8 et 45, rear 19x11 et 55. Also new rubber w/Bridgestone Potenza S-04 pole position.

They look great on your car, hadn't seen these before! Very similar look to the Carrera Sport, I just got a set of those for my car.

thanks, this wheel came out 2 yrs ago. I looked at a lot of wheels, the mesh style was too common. IMO.. I always like the 5 spoke star designs w/lip so I went with this. What I like the most was their offset & hub-centric. But they're heavy tho. 28lbs F & 31lbs R. I don't race or track my car so its fine with me.

Wow, that is heavy... and I thought the CS were heavy!

On the bright side, my experience with TSW wheels (I believe Victor Equip is their Porsche-specific brand) is that they are exceptionally sturdy, so they should hold up very nicely to daily (ab)use.

cheers!
