Hi all,

Posted this on another forum, but thought I'd post on here too. I was wondering if anyone was running aftermarket 17" wheels on a 987. I found a killer deal on a set of (what was advertised as) used 18" LMs online, only to find out after test fitting that they were actually 17". I contacted the seller to try working it out, and he was only looking to issue a refund once I sent the wheels back.

Anyways - I love the look so far without tires, and was hoping someone else had aftermarket 17"s for comparison so that I don't invest in refinishing these wheels only to swap them out after.

Here are some pics for reference:

Totally agree with you. After giving it some thought, I'm sticking with my plan for 18". I'm eyeing some HRE's right now too... :sneaky:
Setup looks great btw! What tire sizes are you running?
Thanks! The stock sizes: 235/40-18 F & 265/40-18 R

Nice! I ended up picking up the HREs over the weekend from someone off another forum. Looks like the previous owner was running the same size as you on the fronts, but had 295/30 on the rears because they're 11.5" wide (off a 996 turbo).

Here are a few quick pics:
