Question What wheels are these?



19" Chrome and I believe they came on the car from original dealer purchase upgrade.

I'm not a fan of chrome, but these get a lot of looks.

Any help? Thanks,

Vince

Those aren't factory. Porsches came with a BBS wheel but it didn't look like that. 19" wheels were not an option on 986s (first appeared on 987s) and no factory Porsches came with chrome wheels. They kind of look like a Victor LeMans but they're just a bit different, so it's not that model.

Here's the Porsche Sport Classic II wheel (BBS)

Thanks for that info. I had doubts that these were dealer upgrade. Previous owner must have swapped them out later.

I'd still like to hear from anyone that might know more about these wheels.

Thanks, and @Imari, that's a nice looking car.

I thought this might be the wheel, but the screw numbers are off. Mine have a lot more used. 3 screws between a spoke, where these have 1.

Pictures are of Wheel Dynamics RPK-038 and their Pentera, which might be the same, just different name.
