This sharp white Porsche 997 stopped by a few weeks back for a quick makeover with a new stance and some new shoes. When you’re spec’ing out wheels for a Porsche, first you need to consider the rear wheel’s going to be way wider the than the front – and that a Porsche has a unique lug pattern and offset. Not to mention then you have to pick what style best suits your car when choosing your wheels for Porsche 997. Sr Mod Expert Elliott is no stranger to Porsches, so figuring out what’d work best was no sweat.


Avant Garde wheels offers a Porsche specific line, their Ruger collection – and the Mod Experts suggested a set of Avant Garde Ruger Mesh wheels for Porsche 997, spec’d out at 19×8.5 up front and 19×11 out back.

Of course, with the Porsche 997 suspension as with any car, you need to give the car a drop for a set of wheels to look their best. One of the more affordable options on the market and certainly the most affordable offering for a Porsche are BC Racing Coilovers for Porsche 997, setting you back around $1300, BC Racing Coilovers offer 30-way adjustment, giving you precision control over ride height, damping and more.PORSCHE_997_RUGER_MESH_19X85_19X11_BC_COILOVERS_-1 PORSCHE_997_RUGER_MESH_19X85_19X11_BC_COILOVERS_-6We set the ride height fairly conservatively, giving the owner the drop he wanted while also keeping the car from being so low as to be “not street friendly”.PORSCHE_997_RUGER_MESH_19X85_19X11_BC_COILOVERS_-10



The final product with the Ruger Mesh wheels and the drop from the BC Coilovers combined creates a clean yet customized aesthetic.PORSCHE_997_RUGER_MESH_19X85_19X11_BC_COILOVERS_-7 Any way you slice it, this is one of the sharpest 997’s we’ve had come through the ModAuto shop in SoCal.PORSCHE_997_RUGER_MESH_19X85_19X11_BC_COILOVERS_-12
