Wheel Studs for 996 GT3 Mk1 (aka 996 Sport design Wheels)

Recommended Posts

As the title says, i have the 2 piece 996 sport design wheels and am missing one of the little studs that holds the wheel together.

Can someone please provide a part number as well as the torque spec for the bolt? does it have to be loctited? If it fell out during use, am I better off just taking the wheel to a good repair shop and having them re/re and reseal the wheel to make sure everything is up to snuff on it?

thanks.

hmm...knock on wood that my wheel guy has em. I think they would though, they're made by BBS so if you have a 2/3piece bbs wheel, you would use the same studs.

Can you confirm that 225/40/18 front and 285/30/18 is the right tire size? some tire manufacturers have a 285/35/18 as well.

Those are the factory spec sizes - but you could easily go 235/40/18 and 295/30/18.

Or, use the wider Mk2 wheels (8.5" front and 11" rear).

didn't know i could get 235's on there without rubbing. will have to do that next time. i'm sure it would help neutralize the steering.

245's will rub on lock to lock with most tires but some track only folks run them - your call.
