So where there some problems with these wheels or a lot of problems. There was some reason why they stopped importing them. There’s got to be a lot of reviews one way or another.

Doing some digging. These are not forged. The actual alloy and specs I’m questioning. No way I’d touch these without mill certs, but may be an “option”.

Let the drama unfold.

I have a set of Euromeisters on my 930. 7x17; 9x17. Didn't have any issues balancing.

I had them road-force balanced. Beautifully smooth ride.

These rims are not only cheap but they look good. If I were to ruin one by running over a pothole, I wouldn't react as badly vs ruining a real fuch

I paid $150/wheel shipped. It was worth the risk of buying junk for a set of 4 for $600.

@Spoke
I had to google that procedure. Never heard of that type of balancing. How much difference in price was it compared to a typical balancer? I would imagine it would be difficult to find a shop that does balancing this way.

The place I go to is in Plum outside of Pittsburgh called Golden Mile Tire. A guy at work recommended them. It cost $100 for 4 tires and well worth it.

I didn't have the 930 w/Euros done there and had a bit of vibration; not much; just a little bit. Then I noticed a string of wheel weights sitting on the garage floor where the car was parked and the vibration got worse. Took it to Carl at Golden Mile Tire and all vibration was gone. Zero.

It makes perfect sense. Spinning the wheel in the air when balancing is fine but the tire isn't run like that. It spins with the weight of the car on it and where that weight is the tire is flatten. So why not balance it with that weight on the wheel?

I’ve had Euromeister’s on my 911 for 3 years and 10,000 miles with zero issues. They still look perfect.

Completely agree with this statement. For most drivers the difference probably not important but for perfectionists with a higher end car i can see doing this?

Or unless you're someone with OCD. @bbrock , @tygaboy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)
