Hi Chaps,

A 19" wheel is under serious consideration for my 996Turbo - most likely 8.5/12x19 with the suitable offsets..

Anyone around Virginia Water +10/15 miles running a similar setup on their car? Especially interested in taking a look at standard suspension; height, stance, general look when combined with a 19' wheel..

Many thanks,

Not sure if this helps but I run 19s on mine with 305 width tyres at the rear.

The compromise however is the ride which is harsher as you would expect due to the lower profile tyre.

Pics below of the look.

Mine on 19" 305-30-19 on the rear 235-35-19 fronts.

I think the car needs lowering to get the desired stance,
19" will accentuate the gap even more so than 18" due to different profile tyres.

I don't think you can beat the look of 19" LM's with slight lowering on the 996 wide body cars

Morning Chaps - that's good insight many thanks.

@Harv - it's a classic look, pricey for me....would love to find a second hand set....any ideas?

@Baldguy - the CHR's present good value for money in my opinion. Only slight drawback is the weight over hollow spokes, but given the larger diameter and the mono block config..inevitable..I am currently considering these wheels actually - 235.35.19 8.5j et51 / 295.30.19 12j et45 running Pirelli P Zeros. Only concern being slight overall height increase ~5m front / ~10m rear. Slight rake doesn't bother me much...but again, not seen these on in person :-/

@K9ng - Michelin's? Lowered springs? Lowering may be an option in the future, but not at present. I guess I am now at the stage where aesthetics are secondary to basic form and function. Then again if the wallet allowed for a set of coilovers I'd be on them like a shot!

@BlackTurbo - great thanks. What suspension are you running?

This musing has only come about given my initial plan to refurb the hollow spokes and space out the wheels to emulate a GT2 look. ~5-600 outlay..The CH-R's (second hand, are coming in at £18oo in near new condition)

Thanks

You guys had any front diff issues?

I'm looking at moving to 19s too and am concerned that I might upset the diff.

This thread seems to suggest that as long as the rears have a 0-2% larger rolling radius there will be no issue.

They ride well on 18" wheels. How do you feel the drive is improved by going larger?

I found the ride a little, a very little harder/more feel of the road, but the handling when pushing on at track day's is transformed compared to 18's with larger side wall tyres.
when I changed wheels I also went from Pirrelli to Michelin PS2's, which again I found a vast improvement in the wet, slight improvement dry.
As for the diff, no issues at all only slight issue on my change was the rear clearance on the inside edge just tickling the arch liner, so I 'adjusted' the liner mounting bracket.
