I don't know for this particular wheel but if it's the same as all the other 17x7 then it's ET55. Post on the forums at www.rennlist.com

It should be ET55 just like all the other 7 x 17 inch rims.

The 8.5 x 17 should be ET50.
Get that confirmed though. Ask a Porsche dealership.

Thumbs up

Nice choice! I have those wheels. They're going on my Bug also. They are ET 55 for 17X7 and ET 50 for 17X8.5. Got 'em from wheel enhancement.

They look like a modern Fuchs rim.
They are very nice.

Good choice.

actually i have those same set. they are going to look soooooo hot. i have 4-8.5's (got a good deal to buy all 4) right now that are all ET48 (sounds weird, but it is true). i just ordered a set of 7's for the front. i will be selling 2 of the 8.5's now. one looks like it was set face down and will need refinishing, but that is not too expensive. the other has a couple of scrapes, but otherwise in good shape. let me know if you are interested. they will be going on ebay in a few days if i don't hear anything.

I looked around for a while for this particular wheel before I decided on Wheel Enhancement. It was either them or the Porsche dealer. Forgettaboudit! Wheel Enhancement was Super nice and I got 'em quick. Not a bad price either. www.wheelenhancement.com I got "new car take-offs". Just as good as brand new and saved some dough.

yea, i have heard nothing but good things about wheelenhancement. i had their pricing and called another guy to compare. he had them for the same price but cut a deal on shipping. i figuured i had him on the phone...so i just ordered from him. both were running $300/wheel. wheelenhancement.com will be a better bet for you from a company standpoint.

not sure. if they don't, try talking to these guys...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...em=1853092116. they are the ones i got my 7's from. not sure if they do either, but worth a try. they are in Florida. good luck. they are great looking rims. just enough retro and just enough modern race look.
