I saw an ad on Facebook marketplace. The guy traded an old VW bus for some cash, a Boxster and 2 extra sets of Porsche wheels. He sold the Boxster to someone that was going to track it and kept the wheels. He had a set of 17" cup wheels that were painted Guards red and the ones pictured $500 for each set. Said these came off a 911 and were beat up a little but not bent. He lied LOL What threw me is they were gold. I couldn't find any reference anywhere that Porsche used gold on this style wheel. Pretty good tires on these, new tires on the cups. I offered him $300 snd he took it. Got them home and installed and they were so bent the car was undrivable. Took them to a place in Indy that restores and straightens wheels, $145 a wheel. Just picked them.up today.
Haven't got them on the car yet but they look great. Hopefully they will drive great 🤞

It's s francise business. They did a hell of a job for $580. Quick too, 3 business days.

And are you still using the tires that came on the wheels? If so you are doing great!

Yes, it has a slight vibration at 75. Feels like a tire vibration but nothing that is even noticeable around town. I'm happy 😊

Iíll second that opinion of Alloy Wheel Repair. They just did my Z3M wheels, three of which were bent all of them rashed. They PO must have never found a curb he didnít like! $580 for the repairs, refinish mount and balance.

That's a sweet car. What kind of hard top do you have?

JBauer 02-27-2019 07:49 AM

Thanks, It's a Z-top.
