996 C2 "official" tire sizes?

Recommended Posts

I bought my 996 with 17" because I have 3 sets of OEM 18s in the garage but to bring my car over to the UK, I need to have N tires (I currently have SO3s) in the original sizes. Is the original size for narrow bodies 265/35 or 285/30 for the rear?

Thanks Loren. Since my car is an '03 it means that I need 285s... Wonder how that will feel with the 7.5" still on 225...


Hmm... you lost me there.

If you have a MY03 that came with 18" wheels then the fronts should be 8". (see the 911 Tequipment wheel table at the Porsche site)

I've had 3 996s:

a 1998, a 2000 and now a 2003. I had 3 sets of 18" with the 2 first cars. All OEM in 7.5x18 fr and 10x18 rear. When I bought the 2003, I purchased it with 17" (for snow tires as I get to European winters) and put on an "old" set of GT3 style wheels on the car after delivery (with SO3s from my previous car). To bring the car inside Europe, they want N tires and sizes. so NO SO3s.. Since I have put the 18" on the car I needed to know what were the '03 official sizes because that's what the inspectors will want on the car.

Thanks for your help
