I need winter tires on my 1999 Porsche 996 Carrera.
I found some used 19" (99736215602) ET57 8x19 front with 225/40r19 and (99736216202) ET51 11x19 rear with 255/35r19.
My question is, will these fit my carrera? The owner have had it on a 996 Turbo (not 997 Turbo).
Just looking to get peoples opinions on this car:
GT3 Replica based on 996 with genuine parts: 73k miles.
This car has had extensive work carried out during the 4 years i have owned it,with no expense spared, the car started out as a 99996 carrera, it has had full 997 body conversion including rear wings, back panel, sills, and front end, this is not a fibre glass conversion it was done using genuine steel parts at a reputable body shop, the car is not wrapped, it was painted in candy white which is the original colour used for the porsche 997 gt3, 1 year ago at a cost of 3500 pounds, in 2007 the car had a claim due to a wiring fault, which was fully repaired before i bought it, you have to appreciate this car for what it is now, not what its worth in glasses guide, as it is quite unique, i have spent a fortune and a lot of time on this car over the period of time i have owned it, always kept it maintained and always garaged, and now its time to let someone else enjoy it, it will not go out of fashion and you will not get bored of driving it, you would have to spend 50k plus on an original white 997 gt3, for a fraction of the price you could own this,
spec includes 997 gt3 mirrors, bumpers, rear engine lid and spoiler, gt3 997 carbon fibre seats, uprated and lowered suspension, 20 inch asa wheels unmarked no kerbing, with exellent tyres, sat nav and dvd fitted, aluminium and black interior trim, xenon headlight conversion.
What would you value this at too?
Any help and advice appreciated.
