Are these OEM or reps? They look good! Did you need spacers or adjustments to center bore?

I was thinking of getting those same rims and painting them black with a polished lip. The ones I have seen for sale on fleabay are similar to the GT2 and spyder rims but not 100% knockoffs. They really look good!

Yes 19" Inch I will post some more pics on my next day off.

No spacers or adjustments just straight on straight off.

That's a lot of weight to balance a wheel/tire. At least they split the weights front rim and back rim. Are they all that way, or just this one?

I like the balance of the 18s. The 19s look a little too thin on the sidewall and awkward on an older car.

I feel the same way, but all that's sold now adays is 19" wheels. More, can you post some more pics? I really like these wheels. I'm looking for a set of replica wheels, I would prefer some 996 styles, but can't find any anymore.

+1 I agree only time 19"look good on older cars is with a body kit. 18" look perfect on our cars.
