Awesome 20 Inch Custom Forged Wheels for the Porsche 997 Turbo.

Porsche 997 Turbo Custom Forged Wheels in 20 Inches 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 forged wheels in 20 Inches are a No-No because it's "undrivable" 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's 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.

Of course, are 1 Piece Monoblock custom rims in terms of weight the better option, especially if you want to have fun on track days and create pictures in your mind, you lead the pack. Lewis Hamilton doesn't have a chance against you. The stunning look goes to the three-piece forged wheels with the exposed hardware. Staggered, deep dish or with double step lip but for sure deep concave is what they all will be. You tell us what you want, and we have it.

The LOMA SCUDERIA 3 Piece Wheels' finish on this beauty here is called "Liquid Titanium." It looks like the surface of a starship straight out of Star Wars. We also offer the same one in matt or satin Beluga Black to name just a view. You can choose from exposed hardware or hidden. Please be aware that hidden hardware on three-piece wheels makes the rim a bit heavier. The reason is that the flange on the rear needs to be a bit more massive as the bolts do not go through the complete ring, and you will have a bit more material.

Some hard facts about the Porsche 997 Turbo.

The Porsche 911 has been around 55 years now, and it’s still the benchmark for all sports cars and the 911 Turbo is at the top of the pile when it comes to outright performance and usability. The thing that makes the Turbo so great is not just its impressive power or even its mind-warping acceleration. It’s that even though it’s a proper supercar, it’s also super-civilized and can easily be used every day.

A few years ago, I was in the incredibly fortunate position to be looking after a Ferrari F430 Spider for about four months over the summer (the 911 Turbo’s closest competitor). It was a nightmare to live with. If you drove it too much, something would go wrong, and if you didn’t drive it enough, something would go wrong. You couldn’t park it anywhere, and you were always too paranoid about leaving it in case someone did something unthinkable to it, and don’t get me started on the abuse I used to receive pretty much every time I ventured out in it (read about my experience HERE) The 911, however, has none of these issues. It’s got all the performance of its Italian counterpart, but that is coupled with incredible German engineering, meaning you can hop in it whenever you want and turn the key, knowing that it will start every time and not throw up any terrifying dash lights. It’s also wonderfully civil to drive about. This particular one is a 6-speed manual, and the clutch is nice light, the changes are smooth, and the steering is perfectly balanced.

The thing I love about the 911 Turbo the most, though, isn’t its practicality or its user-friendly drive. It’s how well it performs when you push it to the limit. It may be beautifully preserved and understated in town. Still, when you open the taps on the 911, you are very quickly reminded that you drive a proper supercar. 0-62mph takes a mere 3.9 seconds, and it can go all the way to just shy of 200mph without breaking a sweat while providing you with some extreme aural pleasure thanks to that unmistakable flat-6 soundtrack! Thanks to how the all-wheel-drive system has been developed with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), there is little to no-slip. All 480bhp is applied through the sticky, wide 19-inch tires giving you an incredible thrust when you put your foot down. It sticks to the road like glue with absolutely no sign of under or oversteer, and it’s a strange but fantastic experience. It pushes the limits of physics in an effortless manner that can only come from a Porsche.
