2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Mon Nov 04, 2019 12:45 pm    Post subject: tyre / maybe wheel help 996 turbo Reply with quote

so after about a year off the road i want to get my 996 T back in use so ive just fitted overhauled my original suspension and notice my wheels are rubbing on the inside of the arches but not marks on the outside of the arch so im assuming i need to run 5 mm spacers ? anyone else run spacers ? if so best place to get some ?

I am running techart 19 wheels

235 35 19 front

295 30 19 Rear

i want to put new rubber on all round but thinking maybe running a slight stretch on the back to help with rubbing ?

any advise would be amazing thanks

Hi
Mine has been running with 5mm spacers all round for about 10 years. Bought mine from OPC Hatfield along with the appropriate longer bolts

HTH

Ps - your car looks great - enjoy Thumb

RUF shows a different tyre for the rear for 19 inch wheels on a 996 Turbo: https://ruf-automobile.de/en/product/ruf-19-zoll-aluminium-radsatz-85-j-x-19-11-j-x-19-2/

The tyre size RUF suggests looks to be a better match than yours too, so maybe it won't rub? However, I am no expert in the matter - I am still on the original 18 inch setup.

https://tiresize.com/tyre-size-calculator/

235/35R19 - 648mm diameter

295/30R19 - 660mm (+2.0% compared to 235/35R19)

315/25R19 - 640mm (-1.2% compared to 235/35R19)
