996 Turbo Alloys Question ....

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure you can because you can order SportTechno rims on a C2 and they are 295 on the rear. On 2002+ C2's at least.

Well, despite the fact that the Sport Techno rears are 11" wide, they have an offset of 63 mm to accommodate the narrow body 996. The actual Turbo rear wheel's offset is 45 mm. Not a good fit on the narrow body.

I would say that the Off-set 45 on the Turbo 2 rims is not the problem, the Turbo 2 rims, 11Jx18, have lots of space between the rims to the suspension and the main thing is the tire rubber to the fender arch.

so my garage recommended 285 on the 11J would fit perfect at the rear, so it did.

Thanks for the advice guys.

It looks like the turbo wheels should be ok, I'm negotiating a price with the seller now, so if I get a good deal I might as well buy them.

If the rear turbo alloys have an offset of 45mm, will I need spacers to make them sit correctly ??

If they don't fit then I'm sure a turbo owner would like them as a spare set for the track.

cheers SP
