My car is a widebody '78 SC.
The front wheels are Roock 9x18 built for a 993tt.
Gross width is 10"
Backspacing is 6 7/8"
36mm spacers were used to push the wheel out.

Here is a picture with a 24mm spacer. You can see there is plenty of room for a 265mm tire when you compare it to the above picture using 36mm spacers.

NOTE - tire manufacturers vary considerably in size vs stated width. Pirellis run small.
