A staggered fitment is also referred to as a staggered application. Basically it means that you are running different sized wheels on the back of the Porsche vehicle than
the front. Usually a staggered wheel fitment refers to wider wheels on the rear of the vehicle, for example 19x8 on the front and 19x9.5 on the rear. Running wider Porsche
wheels on the drive wheels means more grip on acceleration and from an aesthetic perspective, it means larger lips.
The offset is a vital technical aspect of your wheel and your car. To better explain this, Victor Equipment put together a brief 101 video on offsets.
You can also go to our wheel technology page to learn more about offsets.
Handling can be improved by running larger wheels. Larger wheels mean you will run a low profile tire, and usually, a wider tire. A low profile tire often performs
better when cornering and braking, as tire roll is greatly reduced. A low profile tire will result in a stiffer ride.
Extremely large wheels, such as 24" and 26" wheels, are heavier and can increase braking distances. However, Victor Equipment will always endeavor to keep the wheels
as light as possible without compromising the strength of the wheel.
Currently the Victor Equipment Lemans Wheel in 19x11 has the largest lip in the Victor Equipment range at a staggering 2.25". You can check the lip sizes of

With regular care and regular road conditions, Victor Equipment offers a one year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Victor Equipment provides a lifetime structural
warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Victor Equipment that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose.
Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by Victor Equipment that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Victor Equipment are not covered under the
warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
Victor Equipment does not offer a "road hazard warranty," so any damage or issue with a wheel caused by the wheel colliding with a pothole or any other object or debris
will not be covered by the warranty;
Wheels that have been used in racing are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness; and
Wheels mounted on vehicles with a load rating in excess of the load rating of the wheel are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness.
Wheels that have been modified, repainted, or powder coated.
Many Victor Equipment Wheels including the Baden Porsche Wheel and Innsbruck Porsche wheel are manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called
Rotary Forged® /RF™. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances
the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel
which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.
Some wheel designs have been enhanced utilizing a CNC Milling technique. CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines are used to perform complex drilling and
contouring operations to enhance the design of these wheels. Take a look at closeup image of these wheels (click on any wheel image) and notice the milling grooves
that flank the spokes and central contours of this wheel, giving it a machined artisanal look
