Would anyone happen to know if the 911 50th Anniversary wheels would happen to fit on the 981 Cayman GTS? Looking at the specs.. It seems like the fitment would be similar to the 20in Sport Techno wheels - F:9x20 R:11.5x20 - but I may be wrong. Has anyone looked into this or done this before?

See the below pic for my super-quick, sub-par attempt to photoshop the desired look:

I don't think the diameter and width is the real issue (even though the fronts are 1" wider than stock, and the rears 2" wider than stock). It's the offset that matters, and given the widths, especially the rears, I would doubt very much the offsets are going to work. Even normal 911 wheels (rear is 11") don't fit 981s because of the offset.

The wheels you're looking for are Porsche OEM 19" Classic III. I have my winter tires mounted on them. They are OEM for the 981 Cayman and have the proper offsets.

You will need to have the centers painted black, which can be done professionally by wheel specialists such as:

Yeah, they are pretty cool. Love the homage to the Fuchs wheel.

Thank you all for the great info. Will look into the 19in as it seems the 50th Anniversary are not an option. Much appreciated gents.

Good luck!

Those "Sport Classic Look" wheels are very interesting in the fact that I've never seen them anywhere other than that site. That site primarily sells OEM products. So, maybe they were offered in some other region other than USA.

I have the 19" Cayman S III wheel and like them but I'm looking to add some color to the wheel by paint or powder coating. I've spoken to Wheel Enhancement about my options. They stated an all gloss black is doable, of course, but to add a silver lip wouldn't be possible. So, to replicate the Sport Classic design would probably fall into the same category since it's even more complicated.

I'll most likely go with their Platinum Satin finish instead. I've seen pics and it looks pretty dang nice. Actually, here's a sample. They applied the finish and color to the silver Carrera S III wheels...


I am no way affiliated with Wheel Enhancement.
