I would like to be able to adjust my ride height on my 2003 996 Carrera Cabriolet. I would like the front 1 1/2 inch lower and the rear 1 inch lower. Ceika Type 1M and Ksport CP0010-KP are inexpensive. Can anyone recommend them? Thanks.
Wow, 295 is only 1/4 inch wider inside and outside, but it is 1/2 inch taller. So I guess there is more flexibility. I mostly went with the 295 to get the rear tire the same height as the front tire. Thanks for the info.
Ric Garwood replied to Ric Garwood's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks so much. Keeps me from doing damage.
Where can I lift with a floor jack to put my car on jack stands? I can't use the lift points because that is where the jack stands need to go. Thanks.
2003 911 Cabriolet with 19800 miles. Got from a neighbor who is even older than me. Chasing down the little things that need fixing. New tires, battery, mirror adjustments, window down fix, oil pressure gauge going from 5 to zero, others. And the bearing fix.
I asked for that. I will definitely spend the extra money. Might not make me faster, but I won't be worrying about that @#$% bearing.
OK, well I got my answer. Thank you. Now how do I start a GoFundMe?
For insurance, I plan to have the IMS bearing replaced even though I have under 20,000 miles. What is latest opinions on the bearing replacement? It is worth an extra $1200 for the oil feed? Thanks.
That settles it. Keep the 225/40 on front and go to 295/30 on rear. Then they will be almost the same height. Front 25.1 inch and rear 25.0 inch. Thanks for the comments.
THANKS. I would like rear 295/35 so they are taller than front tires. There appears to be plenty of room for extra height.
OK, Thanks. Can someone confirm that adding front 1/2 inch width and 1/4 inch height will clear without rubbing when turning? And that adding rear 1/2 inch width and 1.4 inch height will clear? Actually one half those numbers in/out and top/bottom.
Ric Garwood posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2003 Cabriolet with 18 inch stock rims. 225/40 front (25.1 inch tall) and 285/30 rear (24.7 inch tall). I would like to upsize slightly to 235/40 front (25.4 inch tall), and 295/35 rear (26.1 inch tall). I looks to me that I will not have any clearance problems, but this is my first Porsche, so I wanted to get advice. As it is now, rear tires look a little small. Plus I read somewhere that Porsche speedos read lower than actual. Thanks.
