Newbie - Aftermarket Wheels/Tires and Suspension


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a newbie to this board. I am in the process of acquiring an '02 996TT. I am curious as to what the widest tires I could install without rubbing. Also, I am considering some 19 HRE 545R's.

I am considering changing the suspension as well.

Please advise on these ...

Thanks in advance.

Try driving for a while before you do anything! Also try searching. The 19s are ok for the street but most people feel that 18s offer better performance. You must be careful in upsizing tires. The fronts and rears need to be the same diameter or else the AWD system can be damaged in attempt to compensate for the difference. Suspension options include Porsche X73, Porsche ROW, Bilstein PSS9 and Ohlin.

Saint, What are your driving desires? If you are going to track the car at all, I would not recommend 19"...If you want Bling, then 19's are fine. For suspension the suggestions above are all choices...if you want more...Motons or JIC. When you ask how wide is this without fender rolling? Anyway how wide for tires will depend on how low you go with suspension.

So far, I'm considering 19 HRE 547R's (315/25/19 - 235/35/19) with PSS9's...B&M Short Shift.

Is there such a thing as a THICK multifunction steering wheel or perhaps just a multifunction steering wheel for the 996?

That sounds fine...what rubber? Manufacturers vary in size so you may need a fender roll. Yes there are Thick steering wheels...Porsche has them as well as TechArt.
