Deciding between my turbo twists or 993 Cup 2s
 
I have both 17x7.5 front and 17x9 rear, Trying to decided which ones I am going to put good tires on. I am also lowering the front another inch or so.

Go cup3, and remove the turn signals from the front fenders. They break the lines of the car imho.
OH! And give me your pop-out windows! :P

Twists! Always look better static :)

Those are cup 1s you've got on the back, not 2s...

Pablo March 18th 2010 18:38

Cup 1's for me

Scotts73SB March 18th 2010 22:31

Cup1 but im biased. :)

Soft spot for the cup 1's

johnnyvee March 18th 2010 23:08

to me it's more about stance, like which ones fit or don't fit directly under the fender

Hi

I like them both, I had 3 piece Cup 1s on my old 1302.

Are they both genuine Porsche wheels? I think some of the replica ones would be heavy

cup 1 would be nice on your car, original 18s turbo twist would look nice with fat fenders. But its really what you like.

Jim March 19th 2010 05:17

Definitely i choose the twists!!!

Eurotrs March 19th 2010 08:53

They are both reps, I know they're really heavy, both are the same offset and sizes. 17x9 rears and 17x7.5 fronts

SteveC those 3 piece cup ones look amazing, that's a great looking car.

Hi

Thanks, they were Japanese copies, very lightweight and made by Superlight, 17x8s on the front and 17x9s on the rear, my new 1303 will have the same Aero fenders again.

NO_H2O March 22nd 2010 08:40

Cups for me

Rob March 22nd 2010 14:12

I vote for the Cups, love 'em.

wrenchnride247 March 22nd 2010 19:55

Cup's...twisties are getting put on everything. I even seen some on a VR6 Corrado :shocked:

Eurotrs March 23rd 2010 09:52

I think I am going with the Cups, who wants to buy the twist?

if offset is et52 for the fronts (7.5 inch ) , i want them
will you sell me the front ones only ?

by the way, both rims are cups, twists are cup 3

petevw March 23rd 2010 21:20

Twists.

zen March 25th 2010 16:38

Late to the party, but with a slightly different angle. I'd go twists unless you are considering painting the rims, then I'd go Cups. Cups look bada$$ painted.

the offset is 52 and they are 7.5 fronts but I will only sell as a set if I decide to sell.

I dont think I am going to paint them.

hey buddy im fitting a fully chromed set of turbo twists onto a 68 flat screen bug, i have 17x7.5 et 52 for front and 17X9 et 47 for rear.

front is getting dropped spindles and narrowed 2inches

just by offering wheel up at rear i see im going to have to put 20mm spacers possibly on rear, and its gonna stick out....... am i gonna need wider wings? if so by how much......

any help greatly appreciated :)

Supa Ninja January 6th 2012 20:21

I would say Cup 2's but those are 1's, so twists are my vote!

711302 March 8th 2012 19:46

I vote for the Twist.
