When you have a Porsche, you can count on one thing: It will always be “A Porsche”, and that said, people expect yours to stay looking immaculate, as “a Porsh”, should be. Trick is, styles have changed and though this 996 Carrera 4s is a 2002 model, it, like all other 996 models, is beginning to show its age. Fortunately Sr. Mod Expert Alan Wei is an old hat at helping aging european vehicles stay looking up-to-date, and helped this conservative owner give his 996 Carrera 4S a new look with a set of new wheels for Porsche 996 – specifically a 19in set of Forgestar CF10 Wheels for Porsche.
A set of Forgestar CF10 wheels was just what the doctor ordered, especially wrapped in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport Rubbers. Generally considered one of the best performance tires on the market, Michelin PSS are a solid choice for virtually any performance application.
Mod Expert Alan spec’d out the Carrera 4S at 19×8.5 / 19×11 in Gloss Gunmetal, wrapped in 245/35-19 and 295/30-19 Michelin PSS.
With the new CF10s fitted, this 996 looks better than new.
H/T to Mod Expert Alan Wei for cluing is in to capture the difference the right set of wheels can make.
