Another Wheel Question - 1998 C2

Recommended Posts

Hope you guys can help ?

The handbook lists the follwing for 18" Wheels

Front 7.5J x 18 H2 Offset 50 mm

Rear 10J x 18 H2 Offset 65 mm

Almost everywhere I have searched I can not find 18's with 7.5 , they are all 8.0

Is it ok to use 8J x 18 for the front, if so, what is the offset ?

The car has 030 suspension if that makes any difference.

Any help please .........

The offset on the 8 inch front are still 50 or 52. IF you want a 7.5 inch rim still for the front you will need to find one from an older 996 (try eBay). Also, you can get a new wheel that is 7.5 with a 50ET as long as you are looking for a 986 wheel.

For what it is worth....I have two sets of wheels/tires (one for the track and one for the street) and my fronts on my track wheels are 7.5" Sport Designs with 225-40-18's on them. My streets Have the same 225-40-18 tires but on 8" fronts.
