Will 997 C4s wheels and tires fit on a stock 996

Recommended Posts

First post ever and new to the Porsche community. I've come across a great deal on a set of c4s winter wheels and tires. Will they fit on a stock c2? Here are the specs:


Wheel Specs: (F) 18"x8", 54 offset ® 18"x10", 40 offset and 5x130 bolt pattern

Tire Specs: Dunlop Winter Sport 3D (F) 225/40R18 92V ® 265/35R18 97V


Thank you

Quick answer would be NO - been there, done that, C4s are 11" yours are 10" in the back, but that is not the main problem, problem is offset on those 11s. They will stick out by almost 2inches pas the fenders, and look stupid. Rolling fenders, huge negative cambers is what would be needed to make em tuck in. I had to return mines and ask for a refund, lesson learned.

Thanks everyone. Ended up getting another set of stock 996 wheels and mounted some Pirelli winter tires on them. It nearly killed me finding winter tires for them. Everyone says mount a good set of winter tires to drive in the winter, well that's easier said than done. They should say mount a good set of winter tires if you can find them along with a smug grin.

Yes, winter tires are better to get earlier in the season.  Possibly because they are more limited in production, it's difficult to find them in stock around this time of year in the middle of the winter (at least this has been the case in my own personal experience).


For your purchase of the next set, try to get on it before winter hits and it should be easier to source the set you are looking for.  Glad you got it sorted.
