That sounds about right for Porsche wheels.

Be aware you could get a set of wheels and tires that are not Porsche wheels for about $2-3K less. And they would be just as good.

So if you definitely want the Porsche wheels and are okay with the price, then go for it.

Thinking about buying a set of 20" wheels for my Cayman S and looking at the pricing at Suncoast. Is this reasonable pricing or not ($5,295)?
I'd highly, highly recommend looking into a set of aftermarket wheels over Porsche ones, the majority of which are manufactured for Porsche by BBS.

O.Z. and BBS are good choices. There are several other makers that have a good reputation among sports car and exotic enthusiasts, including Volk, Rays, higher-line Enkei, Vossen, HRE, and Victor Equipment. For 20-inch wheels with tires of a section width below 40, I'd also look seriously into a set of forged wheels over cast; they will generally resist cracking and bending more than a cast wheel if well made.

Thank you my friend but if you were buying the 20 inch wheels & tires what would be your specific recommendation? What would you buy?

I got the 20" Carrera S wheels through Porsche when I got my car and they were only $2,780 so way cheaper than Suncoast, Maybe check with the dealership and see what you can get them at.

I will consider that but Park Place Porsche in Dallas has been anything but helpful of late. They did a substandard job the first go around on my PPF and the sales manager, Mindy Collins, has not even had the decency to respond to my request for a GT3 allocation.

Yeah that does make it difficult in wanting to deal with them for things. I was lucky to have some decent people when I went to buy mine, of course they didn't have to work hard at all as I pretty much knew what I wanted and it was one they already had in stock.

Woooooow. Sucks to hear that!

As for specific wheels that replicate the Carrera 20-inchers:
- The O.Z. Leggera is a good choice, though it's cast.
- For forged, anything made my Volk (a sub-brand of Rays) is a great bet, IMHO. Look into fitment of the G27.
- For BBS: Nothing matches closely, but I bet the FI (forged) or CI-R (cast) would look great and somewhat similar.
- HREs are very, very pricey, but even the less-expensive forged lines are worth considering. I'd look at the Classic 301M or Classic 303M.
- Vossen can get pricey, too; upward of $2k per wheel. The VFS-1 is a less-expensive hybrid forged model that could work.
- Lastly: Victor makes wheels only for Porsches. The Zehn is the most like the Carrera 20s.

Will 11” rear wide wheels fit (may need spacers)?

Looking at 20x11 wheels with 40 offset.
