1995 993 aftermarket wheels

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1995; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 67500;

I just purchased this 993. It is my 4th 911. It is wonderful to be back. This car has 18" turbo twist cast wheels. I think they are the Mille Miglia brand but I'm not certain. They are not OEM. The are, however, bent! The car doesn't handle as well as I believe it should. It tends to dart from side to side with any road imperfections, hydoplanes too readily in the wet and doesn't ride as well as my old 89 Turbo Cab. I have read your posts concerning the 18" vs 17" wheel for this car and you have convinced me. I am getting ready to order a set of Kinesis K57 wheels/don't know what tire yet.The question (finally) is this. I am willing to pay the extra money for the forged wheel because I believe it is stronger and can be repaired if bent. It's also quite lovely of course. Are my stated assumptons correct? Should I stick with the standard offsets and wheel widths? What tire would you recommend? I will use this car as a semi- daily driver with no track days...Thank you
