While searching eBay for wheels I find a number of companies selling wheels fr $500 for a set of 4.
Has anybody bought any of those wheels and tried them?
Would they work for autox use?

With wheels sometimes you get what you pay for. Sometimes you can find decent wheels for a bargin, but thats unusual. The places that sell wheels on ebay usually are selling poorly made and very heavy wheels. I bought a set of those $500 wheels for my Audi. They were cool looking RS4 replicas but they weighed almost 30 lbs! Most are likely to use cheap casting processes that wont be nearly as strong as factory or nice forged aftermarket wheels.

Is this the place your talking about?

Here's one of my customer's old fake Fuchs. The lug nut holes are all wallowed out. The wheel loosened on the track, broke the spacer and came off, destroying the hub, rotor, and flare in the process.
I warned him but he didn't want to hear it.

Magnus,

that is the style of wheel you want, but try and locate some of the original factory 996 5 spokes. They are the ligthest wheel Porsche made. Grant is correct, these will weigh a TON.. and these are not what you want for AutoX (I'm assuming you want wheels for AutoX?? ) (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I suspected as much. It's hard to find a set of proper ones though.
New they cost a fortune, I could buy CCW C10 for less.

We use these on the track with The Beast and they work great. Not that heavy either and reasonable.

They basically will put together any wheel you need.

Bill Pickering originally found these guys, so he can probably tell you whether or not they could make you a set for autox to fit a 996 offset.

Was about to leave for AX4 when I noticed one of my rear tires are down to the cord, 8 inch long piece of cord showing.
I thought this was the last piece of action for the tires but looks like I'm past that stage.
SO no AX4 today (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
Found a set of turbo twists online, we'll see if I get them ...

Hello Magnus,

Sorry to hear about your tires. BTDT on a few occasions! (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

I just picked up a set of turbo twists from (2) different sellers. Rears came from a wrecking yard and the fronts came from Craigslist. Total cost was $500 for all (4) wheels. The have curb rash, but I'm going to be doing the sandpaper and Krylon route on these wheels.

There are 2 different p/n's for the 18x8 and 18x10 turbo twists. The more common wheels are the solid wheels and the hollow spoke option which are about 2lbs lighter than the solid spokes. I looked around for the last 3 months and I couldn't find the hollow spokes for less than $1K used. If I get really serious about modding the 996, I'll get some CCW's or similar wheels. They sure are nice!

I plan on starting the wheel prep process today. Lot's of cleaning and sanding... (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/icon8.gif)

I used to use these on my formula car (see avatar). They are light for steel wheels, but don't drop them. I dropped a brand new wheel while taken it out of the box, and it bent the lip of the rim. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

Unless the wheels are original oem, I wouldn't trust most of the items there especially the Chinese knock offs.

Diamond wheels really got some good stuff, so as other good retailers of original wheels. When my buddy got a good deals on suspension lift kit for his truck, the retailer also offered a nice set of Moto metal wheels at good discount.
