Wheel styles come and wheel styles go, but there are certain designs that seem to be timeless. The classic 5-spoke wheel is one of those styles that has stood the test of time, and continues to be one of the most common styles of wheels in both aftermarket and OEM applications. The RS97 is our take on the classic style. It features 5 bold spokes that are each stylized with a small channel down the center, leading to a small opening at the end. These details help draw your attention from the center of the wheel towards it's diamond cut polished outer lip.
To be consistent with our entire wheel line, the RS97 uses the same advanced forging techniques as all our other models, resulting in an extremely lightweight and strong wheel, ranging from 18 to 24 pounds depending on application. Each RS97 starts out as a single piece of A6061 aluminum, heat treated to T6 standards, and then forged using an 8000 pound press. The result of this process is a wheel that has an overall yield strength of 40,000 pounds per square inch, making it one of the strongest wheels available today.
The RS97 is available in 18 and 19 inch fitments for the 996, 19 and 20 inch fitments for the 997, 19 and 20 inch fitments for the Cayman and Boxster, and 20 inch fitments for all Cayenne models.
