What options do I have for wheel son the 996? Mine have the gold three spokes on it now...
Can I do 999 wheels or 848 ones?
I just want direct bolt on ones. I don't want to do any modifications or anything...

999/749 wheels would be impossible since its not single sided. check the axle nut size on the 1098s cause I think I remember seeing a 996 once with those 10 spoke rims. Also I'd look into the 998 5 spoke wheels, sure they're cross compatible. I never did like those 3 spoke wheels...

the wheels on/for any 916.996.998 will bolt right on

No (reasonable) way on the 999/749

I think you can get the 848/1098/1198 rear wheel bolted on. But not the fronts. You'd need to swap out some other parts too to put those on

the simplest/cheapest/best(?) option is get some marchesini's from a 996 to replace your old 3 spoke brembos. they fit straight on. 999 wheels are not even close as fouchet posted. they don't have a SSSA... 1098 etc can be made to fit but you need the right axle etc. it's a bit of stuffing around. best bet is 996 5spoke marchesini's.

On my 998R, I have Carbon Mag Dymag.
all 916/996/998 & 848 (small axle) wheels can bolt on 996 : You just have to chose type (Aluminium cast, Aluminium forged, Magnesium cast, Magnesium forged or Carbon) and trade mark (Marchesini, BST, Dymag etc ...).

The 848 rear wheel is the same for the 748/916/996/998 series.
The 848 front is much different in that it is a 5-bolt rotor mount pattern and has a 15mm offset (as opposed by the 748/916/996/998 6-bolt rotor mount pattern and a 10mm offset). In addition the 848 front wheel does not accommodate the mechanical speedometer pickup used on the 748/916/996/998.

I have OZ Racing Piega wheels on my 748/853 (love them). The front is for an 848. To do this I needed different front rotors (went with Brembo T-Drives with 5-bolt pattern and 15mm offset).

My Ohlins forks came from a 748R (we think, they were most recently on one of the ECS 996 racing bikes) and I am using Brembo 4-pad calipers. This setup uses a 15mm offset. Before the wheel swap we used 5mm spacers where the calipers mount to compensate for the offset difference (15mm vs. 10mm).

As for the speedometer, we went with a Koso digital so the original analog one no longer works (mounting the original mechanical speedometer pickup requires machine shop work to the front wheel).

MotoWheels has OZ Racing Piega wheels for the 748/916/996/998 (6-bolt, 10mm offset) that I didn't know about until after I had the 848 front :eek:

The wheels are great and drastically improved the handling etc.


Here's a picture of the digital speedometer shortly after the upgrades. ECS did an 853 big bore kit at the same time so the no longer functioning original speedometer shows the "748 mileage" while the digital one will show the "853 mileage." :D

Just a quick question for moto(if he's still reading this thread). How do the O.Z wheels weights differ from the BSTs in 996 fitment? All i see at the motowheels webite are D16RR weight comparisons

Those O.Zs are gorgeous btw.

The OZ forged magnesium Cattiva wheels are close to the BST wheel weights. In some applications, the mag Cattiva wheels are actually lighter than BST.
In the case of the single sided 996, the 5 spoke front BST wheels are slightly lighter than the OZ but the rear is heavier. It is just the opposite with the 7 spoke BST. Hard to tell the difference when riding them, but the scale shows there is a difference. The Mag Cattiva wheels come in DOT and race versions.

We ended up using the OZ wheels on are 1199 because we like the look better.



The 5 spoke OZ forged aluminum Piega wheels are similar in weight to cast 5 spoke magnesium wheels and OEM Ducati forged aluminum wheels. The BST wheels are lighter than the OZ Piega.

The 5 spoke Piega wheels are all DOT/JWL approved.



We've weighed all the wheels including all spacers, bearings and valve stems at our shop and have weights listed on our website for each wheel that we have had in stock.

BST 5 spoke front: 5.5 lbs / rear 6.9
BST 7 spoke front: 6.05 lbs / rear 6.25

OZ Cattiva Forged Mag (DOT street) Front: 5.85 / Rear 6.6

OZ Piega Forged Aluminum Front 7.25 / Rear 8.35

the OZ piega's are probably a good choice for a road bike over carbon or mag wheels. a bit less maintenance, and about 80% the weight saving for 50-60% the cost. at about $2K for a pair it's pretty good option.

998 with 1098 wheels

HI Guys I have a 998 and want to put a set of 1098 wheels on her.Will the rear fit straight on or does it have a different centre hole size?

I have an ohlins front and rear shock and fork off a 1098 and not sure if I can install them as well (I have the top and bottom triple clamps off the 1098 with a 30mm offset.

I will buy radial calipers and roters to suit the 1098 just want to know if

1) Will the 1098 rear wheel will bolt up to the 998 swingarm

2) Will the triple clamps from the 1098 fit on the 998 frame

3) Will the 1098 TTX shock fit on the 998

As I understand,

1) Yes
2) Yes but you will need the lower triple clamp from the 1098 (which you have) and 1098 suitable rotors/calipers (which you will buy)
3) This one is tricky and will probably need more work

Moto, thanks for the reply

1)No,The 998 and 1098 a different centre hole size. 848 has the same center bore size as the 1098
2) yes, but steering damper and stops may have to be modified
3) may fit with mods but you will likely have to make internal mods to the shock as well as springs.

No on 1 and 3. Not sure about the triples.
