All in the eye of the beholder I suppose. The rears look ridiculously lost in the arches to my eye. Good for easy access to for cleaning in the winte however

My ideal 993 involves deep dish 18" split rims filling the arches Bandit

Yeh of course, differrent strokes and all that Thumb

I will probably run the spacers you've mentioned next winter to avoid the empty arch syndrome.

Nick are you running any spacers on the rear?
The WB 993S had factory fit 31mm spacers fitted with the 9jx17" ET55 Cup 2 rears.

It should have Carl, it went in for new tyres and wheel swap in November with the spacers 🤔

Will check tomorrow

Cool. I read that Porsche advised that a 5mm spacer was acceptable on the front when used with factory 31mm rears.

I think the rears would fill the arches fine if they sat a bit wider.

Assume you parked there just for the pic (and usually park so you can get out of the driver's door)?
