PostPosted: Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:38 pm    Post subject: Anyone use a 9in rear wheel or more square wheel set up? Reply with quote

Looking at various OE wheel options and considering a set of Panamera 18in wheels as one of the options (had a set on my Boxster and liked them).

Only thing is rear is 9in wide as opposed to 10in std (although 17in wheels are 9in). Id still use the same tyres @ 265 so to me the affordable grip would be the same.
The fronts are 8in as opposed to 7.5in but again same tyres to be used.

Anyone done this that has noticed anything untoward? To me it just seems a cosmetic change really.

Wheels in question below (not my old car but similar colour to current one)

Wheels look nice.

Don't caymans run 8 and 9?

Would probably be fine using oe width tyres. Or maybe run 17" width tyres as the rims are that width - 205 and 255 to balance the car as factory - would a 265 be too wide for the 9" rim? 205 may be too narrow for an 8.

From offsets they look like they wlll fit without spacers, although the front rim will be 15mm closer to the strut.

They look nice, like an 18" version of the 17" carrera multispoke.

What do the wheels weigh? 996 wheels are pretty light: http://www.944racing.de/wheelweights.php

Yeah they are 8in and 9in. I feel the 265 on the 10in is a little stretched looking. When I had them on my Boxster I had same size tyres as I run now i.e. 225/40 front and 265/35 rear so straight swap.

Weight wise there pretty light, lighter than the Sport Designs for sure.
