It was recently brought to my attention that the heads of the wheel lugs in my car are 17 mm instead of 19 mm (factory lugs). Is there any problem with that? Is it possible that also the length of the lugs is not standard?
I am going to get rid of the lock keys. Therefore I will need to buy 4 new lugs, if I keep the other 17 mm lugs. Any chances that lugs with same diameter and length, but made by different manufacturers, may have different weights , which would affect the wheel balance?

If my interwebbing is at all correct, there seems to be some differences between the 955/7 and the 958 wheels. I know they are interchangeable between vehicles, but I suspect there's some difference between the backspacing and offsets.
I'm trying to get some some proper and semi-aggressive AT tires fitting to my CD. While I know the OEM 255/55-18 tires will fit with no issues, I'm wondering if I can't get a slightly taller and/or wider tire on my rig. Having access to OEM wheel specs should help me in that quest.
Can you point me to a resource for OEM wheels specs? Specifically, the 18 inch wheels?
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 posted this on http://www.6speedonline.com and haven't gotten any response.
Im trying to decide on tires for my new wheel setup.
I found this great wheel and tire calculator but Im having trouble finding some of the specifications.
For instance to figure out if the tires will interfere with the suspension its asking for "suspension clearance". Its also asking for fender clearance and wheel well clearance? Dose anyone know this information?
Im getting 20" x 9.5" in the front and 20" x 10.5" in the back.
Every time I do a search for sizes the closest I come it people running 20" x 9" in the front and 20" x 10" in the back.
I wouldn't mind running all 10.5 all the way around but I don't think that will work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the wheel and tire calculator.
