19" rims on 993 cab?

Recommended Posts

:drive: Hi Guys/Gals... I recently purchased a '96 993 cab, and run 17" rims with 205 50's on the front and 255 40's on the back (55 offset on both). Can I run a 19" rim with 235 35 (47 offset) on the front and a 275 30 (56 offset) on the back. I've been told they'll be fine...any comments please!!!

I was wondering the same thing - except on a (993) C4S coupe. You have some additional stabilizers in there which may interfere. The C4S coupe is (obviously) wider in back, but don't know if 19s will work??? Maybe someone can help us both :)

In speaking with tirerack.com and wheeldynamics.com they guarrantee the fitment of the 19" wheels on my '96 993 cab, as long as they are accompanied by the tires 235/35/19 on front and 275/30/19 on back. Also he mentioned the need for a "Steering Rack Brace" ($60 at Paragon Products.com) and Porsche also recommends if you go with rims of 18" or larger. I don't know if this would apply to yours. Go onto Tirerack.com and enter in your car and see if a wheel and tire recommendation comes up...great site!

I confirmed twice (once with each local dealer) the Cabriolet in 1996, already came with the upgraded steering stabilizer. The technical bulletin (Group 4, Part Identifier 4440, Number 9604), published February 27, 1996 states: "The support bracket is already installed on 1996 911 Carrera Coupes and Cabriolets."
