Hey Dil  They look great.  I do like the Speedlines. 

What size did you go for and what tyres did you manage to squeeze on them.

:) HI THE RIM

Sizes are,

Rears 17" x 10" ET5

Fronts  17" x 8" E30.4

I PUT 235 45 17 ON THE FRONT AND 265 40 17 ON THE REAR AFTER A BIT OF INVESTAGATION ON THE  WEB

I COULD HAVE GOT AWAY WITH 275 ON REAR BUT WAS UNSURE,  (hm)
BUT I DO LIKE THE WAY THE 265 ARE STRETCHED ON THE RIM ,
AND IT KEEPS THE TREAD UNDER THE ARCH

(crazy)

Very Nice Dil.  I really do like the speedlines.  I know they are heavier than Fuchs, but at least they are unspring mass.

I have bought some Ruf front and rear bumpers which I hope to install one day.  If I do, then I need a set of speedlines like yours!!!

:) I SAW YOUR CAR WITH THE RUF SPEEDLINE WHEELS , THAT MADE UP MY MIND TO BE HONEST,
THE FUCH ARE GREAT WHEELS BUT THE SPEEDLINE ARE SOMETHING ELSE,
WHERE DID YOU GET THE BUMPERS ARE THEY HARD TO GET HOLD OF, THE WHEELS ARE VERY DIFFICULT,

I DONT KNOW IF YOU NOTICED BUT I ALSO FITTED RUF CLEAR INDICATOR LENSES.

MINE HAD SMALL CRACKS AROUND THE SCREW HOLES SO WHEN I PRICED NEW I FOUND I COULD GET THE CLEAR SLIGHTLY CHEAPER, i THINK THEY LOOK QUITE GOOD WITH A WHITE CAR

They are great wheels and great build quality.

The kit I bought is second hand.  It did take me a while to find one.  You can get them new from RUF (very expensive) or you can buy fibreglass replicas for a few hundred quid.

Very nice.

I am also on the lookout for a set of Ruf alloys for my sse.  Are the size of rims on yours the same spec as a Ruf turbo bodied 911?  I have seen various sizes on ebay etc I'm not sure what will fit and look correct on mine.

Hi I think they are the same as the yellow bird, but your right I saw a set on ebay just after I got these,
But they were not as wide on the rear as the dish did not look that deep.
These are on the limit as i put narrower tyres on it as if i went wider
the tyres would be out side the arch
