    They look rather tasty! I may have missed a previous thread about the purchase of these alloys, so apologies in advance if its already been asked but are thye genuine Porsche or reps?

    hmmm, probably just me but the car is sitting a bit too low for those wheels?

    how can you roll with 2 sets of wheels. Id be happy to swap them for my 18" rstt's (reps i think), would like some darker ones:hubbahubba:

    after fitting these i dont think the standard brakes look to tiny lol
    so im going to go for something more the size of your calipers and spend the wonga saved elsewhere
    well chuffed with the rims though pics dont do it justice will get car back together at the weekend and take some decent shots

    They look good dude, it's making me want a set of 19s now, let me know what the ride and handling is like especially at high speeds as I heard its a bit twitchy.

    Very nice indeed!

    how much of a bugger (if any at all) were they to fit with clearance etc. did you have roll any arches or anything??

    my dad's just bought an S5 but wants to change his wheels, so im trying to persuade him to let me buy the S5 wheel off him as they are 19's, but i fear they might be abit too wide! lol

    im not to clued up on offsets mate my wheels are et 57 with 25mm adaptors and they sit in the arch no problem
    only rubbing i get is on full lock which i rarely do.
    thats probably because my car is so low
