Hi

I have a 2001 Carrera 2 with stock 17 inch wheels. I am looking at some 18inch wheels and not knowing too much about wheel & tire fitments, can anyone help me with a couple of questions.

1. According to the manual, the front option is 7.5X18. But 8X18 seems more common. Will 8X18 fronts run ok on my 2001 C2?

2. The standard 18" tires are 225/40/18 and 265/35/18. Will 225/35/18 and 265/30/18 also work.? (I believe they might be Turbo sizes)

Thanks for any insights on this.

Lots of OEM wheels are 8x18. I have also run 8.5x18 on my 2000 Carrera 4. I have seen people run 9'son the front and 11's on the rear. You need to know the offset on any wheels you are considering. As for tire sizes, the Turbo's actually go wider than the ones you listed. You want to stay close to the difference in size between the OEM tires and replacements.

Loren,

I have a 1998 996 Carrera and want to know if I can run 11 x 18" rims like mk2 GT3 rims. Some say yes will fit no probes, others say no go.

Please let me know if you can help.

Regards

Justin

18x11 et 60 +/- 5mm should fit, but depends on your alignment, tire size and type, suspension, etc.

who said 18x11 is a no go?
