Note that it also says on (page 3) that the approved wheel offset is 63 mm (not 65 mm) AND "Footnote 3. The wing seam and if necessary the rear spoiler must be reworked on vehicles up to and including M.Y. 2001. See note on page 8."

If i have wheels with an offset of 65 is that going to be an issue?

I do not have a spoiler, wing seam?

Most likely 65 mm will be a problem or they would have spec'ed it differently.

In this case their "rear spoiler" means "rear bumper" to you and me. What they say is that it will need to be reworked or rubbing/tire damage may result. Seems like a lot of trouble for 10 mm (less than 1/2 inch) more tire tread width. A 285 is 11.6 inches wide - so a 295 is 12.0 inches wide.

Unless you have the 63ET wheels why would you want to run the 295 rubber?  For the 65ET run the 285 or 265 rubber.

Isn't the lower ET mean that the wheel will stick out more and be more likely to rub? So a 65ET is the better bet here with 295's as opposed to the 63? Assuming the rub concern is on the inside of the wheel and not the outside....

I am having my wheel flanges machined down 5-7mm as we speak for $35 a wheel. So if you are worried about the outside rubbing, that could be your low cost option to get them to fit. If it's the inside, buy a small spacer like the one Porsche puts on certain models.

Ok, now I am confused.  The T2 rims are 10" not 11".  What is you question?

Lesson learned, stuck them on, sticks out an inch, looks rediculous. Anyone need a brand new set of Turbo 2's?

I will be looking to fix this, this week. Loren was right at the tire it is 12inch wide apply that to that on the car, it will function fine, no clearance issues at all, its the overall look that lets you down.
