Anyone planning on getting aftermarket wheels for their Taycan? What kind? size? style?
I definitely will........car came with (47L) 21" Tay Exclusive Design Wheels.....they are For Sale. Car has not been driven yet.
I see Smitty shared Suncoast's supposed data on offsets was.
9.5J was expected on the fronts.....a tad surprised at the 11.5 on the rear but probably correct.
I'll have the car back in my shop next week and will pull a wheel and see if offset is stamped.
With custom wheels I too would go for a slightly lower offset and get that wheel out a tad for a better body fit.

Do you have any ideas on where you'll look for your new wheels?

Seems like pushing the front and rear wheels out by about 10mm works well.

From the other forum, someone test-fitted spacers - on the right pic! 15mm front, 10mm rear:

2079


Another source - the owner shared the offsets of these HRE wheels, and they are pushed out by 8mm front, 10mm rear.
2078

Those 10 and 15 mm spacers look pretty good on that Taycan. I wonder if it makes a noticeable difference when they're driving it.

I've got spacers on my Pan and a slightly wider track on my 911 and they don't drive any differently. You will get more small rocks thrown up with increased chance of stone chips as there will be more tire outside of the wheel well.

Got the specs from the owner:
F: 21x9 ET42
R: 21x10.5 ET45

Narrower than OEM 21s, which are 9.5 and 11.5" wide. However, the offsets place his wheels 12mm and 9mm outwards in a more aggressive stance.

@GreggT - it's starting to look like an extra 12mm front and 10mm rear is just about right. If and when I custom forge a wheel, it'll probably be 21x9.5 ET48 and 21x11.5 ET56

Who made those wheels @Chowster?

I believe they're Rohana wheels. It was posted on the facebook Taycan group. I'm not too keen on the narrower wheels and in turn narrower tires, as that would reduce handling and grip. He didn't provide the tire specs, but I don't think he would put 305s on the 10.5" wheels.

Need some community assistance on this... I am going to be putting a set of BBS wheels on my yet to arrive Taycan that should be here in about 2-3 weeks. The bolt pattern on the BBS wheels are 5x120 so I am going to be purchasing some adapters. I have 2 things to consider, the length of the threads on the Taycan so that I can get the right thickness for the adapter and depending on that, how far it will push the wheel out. Since I do not have the car yet, can someone who does tell me the length of the thread and if they are bolts or are they built in? Thanks!!!

Maybe @Johan Andreas Furebotten can help out since he has a set of Momos on his Taycan.
