Hi Guys,

Would really appreciate your help if you can let me know what is the maximum tyre size i can put in the front and rear of a 00-996 c2? Also what size spacers would i have to use - 5mm or 7mm?



Hi Samvit, I don't want to hijack your thread, but I was about to post a query on spacers similar to yours.

I have just fitted 18" Porsche Sport Design GT3 style alloy wheels to my 98 996 C2 with 265/35x18 rear and 225/40x18 front.

What is a good size spacer and can you fit different front/rear? It looks like a 14mm rear and 7mm front would be good - or should they be the same?
