Will these wheels fit a 99 C2?

Recommended Posts

A local boxster owner is selling some turbo twist 18" wheels/tires;

the wheel part numbers are

FRONT: 993 362 134 06 (7.5x18 ET50?) did not check the tire size.

REAR: 993 362 138 01 (9.5x18 ET52?) with 265/35R18.

The tires are PZERO Asimmetrico, fronts are almost new. The rears have some miles on them but still have > 50% tread.

The wheels are in decent shape, one rear has some curb rash most the way around but could be repainted, the others have normal wear.

I have the same style wheels on my 99 C2 but I believe the stock 18" wheels on my 99 c2 are slightly wider? I didn't climb under to try to get the part numbers..

Will these wheels fit a 99c2?

He is asking $1200 for the wheels and tires, does this sound reasonable?

THanks in advance for your comments.

I agree with LVDell:

For the 996 these rims may not be optimal at all. I have 18inch Turbolook I rims on my '99 996 C2 and they size

Front: 7.5J*18 ET 50

Rear: 10J*18 ET 65

Boxster is a completely different car and the rim specs reflect this. It should not be any problem to find the appropriate sizes at good deal prizes. I recently bought myself on eBay a set of 18 inch Carrera rims w/ wintertires. They look and drive (because lighter and slightly wider in front) awesome.

Since this is my 1st post I should also like to introduce myself. After becoming a carnut at birth, I'm a Porsche 911 owner since two years and completely addicted since then. I live and drive in Europe, Belgium and use the 911 daily as well as for leisure on track-days. I hope to spend many nice and interesting moments on RennTech and also contribute by sharing any experiences where possible. ;)

This is my car:

The rears will not fit.  The 996 rim is a 10x18 and requires an ET of 63 or 65.

Please educate me on what the offset number indicates?

In the case of 18x9.5 with 52mm offset vs 18x10 with 63/65 mm offset there is 1/2" difference in wheel width and also about 1/2" difference in offset.

Does larger offset indicate the wheel is pushed to the outside more?
