I did my first track day in my 997.2 S, and am hooked. Next up is to avoid grinding down my street rubber, and move to DOT approved dry tires and wheels. I currently have 19" wheels on the car, but am thinking of going to "-1" or 18" wheels as there seem to be more tire options, and they are a bit less expensive. I've got the following questions:
1. What wheel widths should I be looking for?
2. What is the corresponding tire sizes?
3. What offset is 'right' and if right is different from 'acceptable' what's the range?
4. Any tire recommendations (folks at the track were raving about the Nittos)?
I recently bought a 04 Cayenne S and they came with 18" OEM wheels style 67263 and they have a offset of 57mm and are 8" wide as per specs, they had quite a few scratches. I found another clean 18" OEM wheels style # 67402 and they have a offset of 53mm and are 8" wide as well.
Will I face any problems if I go with new 53mm wheels instead of 57mm offset wheels? Is it better to have to bigger offset or smaller offset for same size wheels? I have both one and I need to get rid of one of them ASAP. Please help.
