So I posted a similar post a week ago regarding purchase of used winter tyres for my 996. Please, if someone out there knows anything about wheel fitments etc.


My 996 currently have:


FRONT: 235/35 ZR19 ET45 85JX19 Radial Tubeless summer tire

REAR: 295/30 ZR19 ET52 110JX19 Radial Tubeless summer tire


I am looking to buy these but the question is, will they fit?


FRONT: 225/40 R19 ET57 8x19 Winter tire

REAR: 255/35 R19 ET51 11x19 Winter tire


They are 5x130 (OEM Porsche tires)


Really appreciate all help, saves me 50% of retail price :-)

1. Porsche recommends that 19" wheel not be used on pre-MY2002 cars. Due to lack of additional frame supports.

2. The Porsche specs for 18" wheel is 50-52 mm offset in front - up to an 8" (wide) wheel.

Porsche specs 63 mm offset for the rear wheels and up to an 10" (wide) wheel.


As someone told you in your previous posts you are trying to fit wheel/tires from a widebody Porsche on a narrow body. That will not work.
