Oh no!!! The lobsters are attacking!

"Lobster Rims??" Haha never heard them called that for some reason. But out of curiosity, will these fit on a 986? 19x11 in the back seems pretty ridiculous... But they look sweet :P

"Lobster claw" was the phrase used to describe those rims.

And no, they won't fit without super wide spacers and maybe not then.

To mine and my wife's eyes, the "Lobster Fork" wheels are the ugliest recent Porsche wheels we know about. They will come off any car we buy with them.

Send them my way then....

I love them. IMO they look great in black to contrast against the body color.

That is good to know some folks really like them. Maybe a trade will workout when the time comes.
