CAR GURU PORSCHE 997 TURBO PUMPKIN?
DID YOU EVER SEE AN ORANGE PORSCHE 997 TURBO ON SCUDERIA ALLOY WHEELS.
Porsche 997 Turbo Scuderia Alloy Wheels in 20 Inches with custom offsets are the perfect fit for the 911. While you can read in some Porsche forum sites that so-called "experts" say that Porsche 997 Turbo custom alloy wheels in 20 Inches are a No-No because it's "un-drivable" how they describe it, we can guarantee you that that's Poo Poo. 20 Inch tires are made far softer than the old-school 19 Inch tires, and so the ride comfort on 20's is a world better on any 997 Porsche. You have to decide if Michelin or Pirelli is your favorite, and here comes another point.
Many customers wrote that they are not satisfied with the Michelin Sport Cup tires for their Porsche 997 Turbo as they don't stick and how this is possible. This experience is familiar with these types of Michelin tires for daily driving. This is because they need to be on temperature to have a grip. If the Michelin semi-slicks are cold, you will have that soapy feeling while driving, not creating confidence in the car.
For daily driving, our recommendation is not to use semi-slicks. Yes, we also know that Toyo semi-slicks always stick, even if not on temperature. Still, honestly, we don't have any experience with them on a Porsche 997 or Turbo. Therefore, if any of our readers can share his experience here, please post in the comment section and help other Porsche enthusiasts making the right decision.
