I just put the $s on my GTS and love it . They blow away the GY . I made it 7K miles before I had enough . I hated them .

Thanks I’m pretty excited!
yes, I plan on selling my OEM wheels and tire set up. Good Years with 5200 miles.
mesh inserts are from “RGS” Radiator Grille Store. Like everything, There’s a You tube video for install.

Idaho is nice because I can drive for miles on mountain roads and rarely see another car, however….there are a ton of grasshoppers! I often pack a small wash bucket and stop a few times to wash the front of my car.

BC Forged HCA 382’s. (See below) Much more affordable than BBS or HRE’s, solid reviews and the guys from the distributor out of Florida were knowledgeable and terrific to work with as I had many questions about mm width’s wrapped in the 4S’s and fitment with GTS being 10 mm lower. Track days will be rare, Canyon carving through the mountains is my thing.
I have a mental quirk with OEM stance and hopefully haven’t tipped 60 years of German refinement upside down! 😳 ha!
I trust I haven’t, I have custom wheels on my truck, my 4 wheeler, had Techart wheels with spacers on my 991.1 and my wife’s new 23 Cayenne. Have always been happy with the results.

I must admit I was initially displeased when I learned my 992 came with Good Years ….but on my 1300 mile drive home from LA (took the long way home to see some friends at their second home in Scottsdale AZ since it was 72 degrees!) but I don’t recall thinking they were loud, they certainly seemed solid and composed, I would even say durable but then I was likely overwhelmed with the zeal of actually driving my new 992, may have assumed it was due to the lightning package and lovely roar coming from the rear! Criticism wasn’t on my radar! Whoo hoo!
I have ran Continental’s on my 991.1, feel they were a great tire after a few heat cycles but agree that Michelins are the sweet spot!

here is a pic of the wheels, mind you not exactly the same wheel as they didn’t have a pic showing the grey centers with the titanium hardware….. the spokes on the HCA 382’s have a bit more detail but you’ll get the gist. I’ll update with an actual pic once they’re on.

Thanks and might I add you guys are pretty entertaining as well as helpful as I read these threads!

I’ll give BC Forged a (y) as well. Had a set on my last car and was very happy. Nice design and didn’t break the bank like HRE.

Looking forward to some pics. Even more excited to hear that exhaust!

That’s good hear!
After the cost of these cars every time I went out to the garage to drool my eyes gravitated to the wheels….I tried to explain it to my wife and got “the look” ! 🤨…… so I suggested a set for hers and got a whole new look!! And then some! Ha! It’s a good life!
the exhaust and cats may be awhile, just want hear those turbos spool after I install the M tune sitting on my garage bench.
I believe it was CH61 or Larry that assured me the sports exhaust will still sound pretty good!

It's 59/59 whether she'll notice. Worth the risk! If she notices beg forgiveness and blame one of us. 😀

It's not me, I take care of the "entertaining" on this Forum!! LOL! Larry and others share their expert advice on mods and performance issues. I'm impressed with your car and what you plan to do. Also that view from your garage window! :D Fantastic!
