993 hollow spoke Turbo twists 18" trade/sell?

Hey all!

Im to the point where I'm looking to change out my 993 turbo twists with hollow spokes. The rears are 18x10 and the fronts are 18x7.5? Is that right? They are rattle canned (spray paint) black. I don't have a picture to attach to this, but they can be seen on my porsche blog

Id like to trade them for 18" wheels (ideally lighter) that i can put my current tires on. Ill include the necessary spacers if the new wheels don't require them. Also interested in selling, make me an offer? Thanks guys! Happy boxstering!

best,
Bryce

Post part numbers. Make sure they are truly 993 hollow spoke. Are the backs of the spokes smooth or indented?

Probably because they are 996 hollow spokes. Nice! I have a set too. Plan to have them powdercoated this summer, and switch on & off with them on my 993 Turbo. I currently have SpeedLine Daytonas. They nicely hold a 295/30/18 rear tire.

Did more research last night. They aren't hollow spoke, but have the indentions...so they are solid. Any takers? They are 18x10 and 18x8

That's kinda what I thought. 993 hollow spokes are pretty rare.

BUMP!??

Note:
They are not hollow, but solid spoke, 993 18x10 and 18x8 turbo twist wheels, painted semi-gloss black. No bends, mends, cracks, etc. Great shape and look very nice.

SHOOT ME AN OFFER!!!

Hey anti-bling, are you sure the rears aren't 9jx18? I am looking for a rear twist since mine was damaged by a pothole. The part number is 993. 362. 138. 01
