Will these wheels fit a 2001 986?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 986 2.7l. I just picked up some near new cup II replicas from Milla Miglia w/ new tires tires and want to make sure these will fit.

FR - 235/40/18 81/2Jx18H2 ET52.

RR- 285/30/18 10Jx18H2 ET47.

From everything I have seen here, the rears "should" fit (I have already cinched back the e-brake line.)

I was concerned about the fronts. Do I need to shim for clearance? I was concerned about rubbing on the inside of the wells.

The car is on stock springs and struts.

Thanks,

Found out on my own this morning.

They do without spacers , but there wasn't much room left.

They really fill out to the fender lip nicely.

The offsets look close enough. Here's mine and they fit fine:

Fronts: 19x8.5 with 225/35-19 Toyo Proxess-4 (50 mm offset)

Rears: . 19x10 with 265/30-19 Toyo Proxess-4 (47 mm offset)
