I know Carnewal sell them, but I've emailed them twice about buying some and they've ignored both, so I'm a bit stuck.

What sizes fit a narrow body 996 without (preferably) rolling the arches, and where should they be purchased from?

I purchased mine from Peter at Racing team Hofmann in Germany.

Very good service and keeps everything in stock.

Im sure there is a set on ebay at the moment in 9 & 11in widths.

Width versus weight is something to consider. From all the wheels Ive had the best fitment IMO was the Kerscher FX wheels which were 8.5in Et45 and 10in ET48 on the rear.

The E88's are a nice wheel for sure.

Current wheels are the Carrera 5 spokes - 8/50 and 10/65.

10" et65 is too tucked IMO. I'm running a 15mm spacer (so et50), and they could still do with being another c.10mm further out... would probably need the arches rolling for that though.

Used these guys. Make sure you have the dimensions correct/that you want, as you'll not be able to return them once you've ordered/paid for them.

Was also impressed with the response I got off these guys after making an enquiry :

Gert probably best phoned in my experience. He's frequently busy.

I concur. After an email a telephone call is best.

Esp. if you have had no reply.
