TechArt Formula Tires???

Recommended Posts


I am looking into purchasing 18” TechArt Formula wheels, 18 X 8.5 (50) and 18 X 10.5 (42) for my 2000 Carrera 4. I need tires and was wondering what was the largest I should go with for the front and rears. Could I do 285/30 in the rear without any problems? SO3s or Pilot Sports?

Thanks in Advance!

hey there,

you could w/o problem use the Porsche approved dimensions for 996 MY02, front 225/40 and back 285/30, for the TechArt Formula rims.

and for the tires, I would recommend Pirelli P-Zero Rosso N4, really great in rain and super grip on race track!

but the Michelin Pilot Sport N1 are not that bad either on the track and rain.

The Porsche Tequipment for 911 (996) do not supply you the 265/35 anymore and I don't think Porsche Center will sell you the 265/35 wheels anymore either unless they have the stuff in stock.


but I must say that the 265/35 on a original 10Jx18 rims looks better than the 285/30 because from the optic of the tires you will see less rubber cause of the wider rims.

but on the other hand if TechArt delivers 10,5Jx18 (0,5" ca. 14mm more than the original rim) makes about ca. 6mm more rubber on the TechArt rims so that not bad anyway!
