Wheels of GT3 in a C2

Recommended Posts


I I own a 996 C2 Coupe 2000 recently with the factory GT3 KIt,( I don´t know if there is a code for this GT3 Kit) and I notest he have :

- Front 7,5" ET50 - 225/40 ZR 18

- Back 10" ET65 - 285/30 ZR 18 ( he have monted a 17mm spacers)only in back

It is possible to mount in front the 8" ET 52 in front?

In both situations is correct to mount spacers in front? In this case 5, or 7 mm ?

I notest that in front the wheels are inside the arch of the car. In back are ok, with a good looking .

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Yes, you can mount up 8.5" wheels in front with offsets of 50 or 52 mm. You can run a 235 tire in front without rubbing or contact.

I have 8" front wheels on my MY99 Carrera and I am running the same size tires you quote above.

You do not need spacers on the front or rear.

Thanks Loren

Yes I think a 8" ET52 wheels in front was ok and don´t need the spacer. However he have already in back the 10" ET65 with a 17mm Spacer. They look fantastic, so I think I stay with the spacer back. Now I trying to find the GT3 front wheels in 8"ET52, but is not a easy find.

1" is aboult 2,54cm

0,5" is aboult 1,27cm, it was a big difference.
