This week our customer John G brought his 991 Porsche 911 Turbo S in to our shop. Prior to coming here he did not have any modifications done. However, when you own a 911 Turbo you’re not exactly lacking in style or performance. Nevertheless, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to cars, that’s what we love about them.
In this case John brought in his car to get some fresh new wheels installed. He worked closely with our Mod Expert Kevin to find the perfect fit and finish for his beautiful 911 Turbo. In the end he decided on a set of Liquid Metal HRE FF04s in the HRE recommended sizes of 20×9.0 ET45 front and 20×11 ET45 rear. The factory wheel specs are 20×9 ET51 front and 20×11.5 ET56 rear so the HRE rear is a tiny bit thinner but the overall stance will be slightly widened and the customer is still able to run the OEM 245/35R20 front 305/30R20 rear tires.
When it comes to picking wheel colors, HRE’s Liquid Metal finish is always a great choice for white cars. They stand out more than normal silver but don’t draw as much attention away from the car itself like a darker Gunmetal would. On this 911 in particular it meshes well with the grey accents all along the vehicle.
Once the 911 was back on the ground we got to admire it and take a few pictures before John took it back. The 911’s ride height is already pretty low from the factory so the wheels fit well and don’t look out of place. The wide spokes on the FF04s also do a great job of highlighting the enormous carbon ceramic brakes that keep this 580HP beast in check. Naturally are extremely happy with the results and are looking forward to seeing what else John has in store for his car.
