View Full Version : OPINIONS NEEDED: Which wheels?

I've got a "friend" that's soon getting a Porsche 993 Turbo and doesn't know which wheels to get... He's decided on the style, now its down to specifics. The sizes are all the same.. 18"x 10" (front) 18"x 13" (rear) and all the center will be anodized gunmetal with a huge polished lip (like the Kenisis). The 3 choices are as follows...

1)BBS LM
2)Fikse FM 10
3)Kinesis K20

P.S. The prices are all very similar (a fortune) so that's not a factor for choice. This is kinda what the car will look like, except it's Silver instead of Black.

Well you should tell your friend that SPURS21 from maxbimmer.com likes the first rims the best, and tell him to come and join here at maxbimmer :huh?:

Damn, they all look so alike. Well since i can't see, and compare them in real life, its pretty tuff. I like the BBS, and the fikse ones...I would go for the BBS ones though. *th-up*unless the lip on the BBS is much smaller.:P

I'd go for the BBS and they Are used by the Porsche racing teams as well you you'll have that motorsport look :)

MY VOTE on Kinesis!

I just like them for some reason because they look really nice on the E36's for those who have seen those rims on that car.

KINESIS!!!

I think BBS are too overused, need some change in taste

And my 2nd choice would be the Fikse!

BBS LM or Fiske FM 10

Deciding factor is weight and strength.........and i'm shure that both are the best.

The "Fikse FM 10" is by far the nicest wheel out of those three. The BBS wheels are, well...just downright boring.

"Fikse FM 10" gets my vote and meets the "gsbadbmr" seal of approval! *th-up*

Are you guys all serious? To clear some things up:

1) My "friend" was me.
2) I got my wheels already (2 years ago). They are IForged Senekas (pic below). 19"x 13" rear, 19"x 10" front (gunmetal centers, polished 4" dish)
3) I'm about to "upgrade" my (un-used) wheels to DPE R016s. Same size, brushed lip, gunmetal anodized centers with a 5" dish.
4) I prefer the wheels I actually got well over any that I posted on the poll. Thanks anyways for the input.

blah blah blah

FIKSE, BBS LM, KINESIS > iForged

Why do you prefer iForged over Fikse?
iForged is pretty much a copy of Fikse.

Car looks pretty sweet Randy! Can't wait til it's finished.
Is it gonna see the street or is it gonna be a track and show car? Is it gonna be making the trip to Bimmerfest this year? I'd make the drive down to see you and Dado on the track.
