Well I’ve gone and done it….the wife shouted at me this morning so it gave me a good excuse to get further into her bad books and order a Porsche winter wheel/tyre set
….as Steveod says post #41 on
…there’s always a deal to be done so asking the OPC for a better price than the £2762, I got them for £2486 (10% off)….currently awaiting delivery and some cold weather!
I just thought it’s the bargain of the century, the wheels alone are supposedly £1100 a corner, the tyres around £1000 for a set (think they will come with the new Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4’s)…AND they will swap and store year to year, with no extra cost (except an expectation I will order replacement tyres from them too, but I reckon they will last 3 years and I must be able to recoup at least 50% of the original cost just selling the rims if I had to then anyway)
Photoshop before and after below (or rather after and before 🙂 ) –
I went for the 19” Cayman S’s for winter at the top and have the 20” Carrera S’s already as per the bottom pic
Switched from the same Anthracite Carrera S wheels (on GR ‘S’) also to the silver Cayman S with winter tyres this weekend. Grabbed a bargain offer from my OPC who had a ‘surplus’ set of new rims and had fitted a set of Winter tyres to help move them on. Probably a one off deal – they even fitted them and offered to deliver my summer wheels back to me. Just need some colder weather now.
