Clarity needed re. GT3 MK1 wheels on 996 NB?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at purchasing GT3 MK1 (10 spoke Sport Design) wheels for my ´99 996 Narrow body car and need to know if they are going to fit?

I understand that the GT3 MK1 is also a narrow body car so assume that there would be no problem?

The wheels are:

8.5J x 18 - ET45 front. with 225/40s

10J x 18 - ET40 rear. with 265/45s

Unfortunately I will not be able to try them on the car before collection/purchase so any clear guidance would be appreciated.

Those are the same wheels I have on my 01 996 C2. The only issue is the rear tires do not fully fill out the wheels. I replaced the 265's with 275's and they look a lot better. Make sure the offsets are the same.

Hi James,

OK, so I just want to double check that your rears are "ET40" - 18J x 10 ?!

many thanks,

I have GT3 wheels on my 2001 C2 Cab (narrow body) and have no problems with clearance.

I have the same wheels but have 285 tires on the rear (which is the correct size for the MK1 GT3). Works nice...
