Sweet.
I found some magnesium super lightweights spacers but if your sorted that's great.
I wanted rss but I couldn't get them shipped for a price that worked.

GSR are shipping me the LSUDP for a price that smashes any thing I can get over here...nuts eh! But can't get the spacers to come in at the right price.

Anyways I found some super lightweight ones now, and didn't know if you needed a bump.

Glad you are sorted. 20mm!!!!! Post pics

Thanks for thinking of me! I got mine from Wheel Dynamics. Spoke to Eli, good guy. The fit is absolutely perfect. I am very happy with them.





Here are the new wheels!

Looks right BRUCEH! Are those wheels Porsche 2-piece? Are the spacers on the FR also and if so, can you feel any difference when driving? What is the width/offset of the spaced wheels? Is it getting hot in Texas yet ( by my def- 85 or more)

Yes, they are the BBS Sport Classic II's which are a two piece. They are 10" wide with a 65 offset. The 20mm spacer takes them to 45 which makes them just right IMO. The ride is excellent! Very happy with the way they turned out. I am thinking about 7 or 15 mm spacers for the front but I haven't decided yet. It was over 85 a looooong time ago, upper 90's coming this week.

I THOUGHT THE FR WERE ALREADY 'SPACED'. I was wondering if they felt different. Anyway, stay cool!

Nope. Only the rears are spaced. Handling is no different.

You got your wheels finally! They look great. Of course I'm a bit biased. Which tires did you get?
And yes they are more work to keep clean. But, so what, they are worth it.

Thanks Raider, yes they are well worth it! I got the Michelin Pilot Super Sports and love them. Quiet, smooth and lots of grip!
