Will these 18" x 10" 47mm offset wheels for a Boxer fit the


Recommended Posts

The tire rack sold me 265/35/18 snow tires for my Turbo, the only problem is they mounted them on my 18 x 11 Sport techno's and they are too skinny for that wheel. I called the Tire Rack to complain and they swore to me that the tire is safe and won't have any problems, however, I'm not sold with their explanation and you can can clearly tell the the tire is too narrow for the 11" wheel, the side wall is angled in not up.

So I found where Porsche recommended that size tire too for the rear but they say to mount them on 18 x 10 wheels w/ 47mm offset.

So my question is this. Will a Sport Techno wheel 18 x 10 w/ a 47mm offset for a Boxster, work on a Turbo?

Is there a difference in the wheel to make it not work on a Turbo?

Those are considered "Winter Wheels" for a 996TT. Porsche uses smaller wheels for recommended winter wheels 18 x 10 ET 47 mm - so you can fit chains if needed.

996TT summer rear wheels would be 18 x 11 ET 63/65 mm.

That's exactly what I want, a set of winter wheels. So you think that smaller Boxster wheel will fit?
