I’ve never fancied myself much of a wheel guy. Always seemed like too many choices and potential screw-ups when choosing wheels. Choose the wrong ones and your sweet ride turns into a hideous bomb. However, driving the Giveaway Porsche and looking at lots of exotic cars has started to give me an appreciation for what a nice set of aftermarket wheels can do for a car’s looks.
I think if I were keeping the Giveaway Porsche indefinitely, I would seriously consider some wheels from a company named Victor Equipment. I ran across their site last week and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed. As it turns out, Victor Equipment makes wheels exclusively for Porsches. That’s it. They have built an entire business around building the ultimate Porsche wheels for Porsche cars or Porsche SUVs with “no compromises.”
Victor Equipment wheels are engineered to accept the original Porsche cap and emblem (a big one in my book). They work with the original Porsche air sensors (TPMS) and are designed to be a perfect fit. If you think you’re sacrificing quality, think again. All Victor Equipment wheels are hand assembled and built to exacting specifications. To ensure the quality of ride, they are created them to be perfectly hub centric, made to tight tolerances.
All of this boils down to a wheel that looks amazing and complements the performance of Porsche cars. To get an idea of what their different wheel styles would look like on your model, you can check out the Virtual Garage on the Victor Equipment site. The tool lets you swap wheel styles and finishes on three different Porsche vehicles.
I’m pretty impressed with Victor Equipment wheels and their web site. Check it out for yourself here: Victor Equipment. By the way, my favorite wheel is the Florio with the silver finish pictured to the right and on the car above.
