18" Cargraphic Rims on '01 TT


Recommended Posts

:help:

I'm currently looking to buy a set of rims to put racing tires on my 996 '01 Turbo. I could strike a deal to buy 4 Cargraphic Racing rims in the sizes:

Front: 9.5 * 18 ET 62

Rear: 12 * 18 ET 28

My regular Porsche AG 18" measure as follows:

Front: 8 * 18 ET 50

Rear: 11 * 18 ET 45

Can I fit the Cargraphic's on my Turbo without any problem. I do NOT want to have to fit spacers or other adapters.

Thanks for any advise :lightbulb:

Not likely. The rears should be about et45. Those rears will stick out about 21mm further than your stock wheels.

The fronts are probably too wide period. Unless you are planning on flaring the fenders. They will stick out about 25mm further than your stock.

You also have to worry about the inside clearance of the tires on the wheel wells. A 235 will barely fit on a 9.5 wheel. You will probably want to run a 245 or 255 up front. 245s barely fit. 255s probably wont fit without some fender work. On the rears you will have to use 305s or 315s. 305s fit. 315s will fit but you have to be exactly right with the offset or you will have to roll the fenders and/or modify the plastic wheel liners.
