Will 996 wheels fit a 930?

Looking for road wheels for my car, 8" and 10" would be fine in 17 or 18". Just not sure wht offsets will work. I currently have the spacers off the rear for my CCW track wheels but it's no biggie tossing them on..

Also would like to hear if 993 twists will fit, may be a seat around for sale.

Edit: I'm told 996 wheels would require a different spacer and longer studs so I guess if that's true 996 wheels are out.

Any input appreciated.

I'm running 2 inch spacers and 100mm studs on a SC fendered car. My 996 BBS rims had +65 offset.....can't imagine trying to fill the wheel wells of a 930 with these, what a near 4 inch spacer on a 10 inch 996 rim. You might look into the 996TT rims and see how they spec out.

996 = NO
996TT = I don't know

996TT wheels fit fine and look very aggressive because they really fill out the flares (8x18 & 11x18). I need to check what size spacer you need in the front.

The 8x18's sound good but the 11" in the rear may give me too much rake...

Gary, why would you get too much rake from an 11" rear? Is that just something specific to the way your car is set up?

The overall diameter between front and rear is about the same...I think it is around 25.6" . Tires are 225/40-18 Front and Rears are 295/30-18.

Gary -
I've got 993tt wheels on mine, 9&11x18. 996tt wheels will fit as well with both sets taking some pretty large spacers due to the offset.

Tires are 255/35-18 and 315/30-18 so the diameter is nearly identical.

The correct spacers to use are of the hub adapter type. There is then no need to mess with your studs that are on your car.

The 996TT wheels I found are:
Front wheels: 18x8" ET50mm
Rear wheels: 18x11" ET45mm

Here are the adapters available..

I think that would be a goofy looking reverse rake...nice catch!

I was told to run about 1 degree front rake in my car. If I run a 275/40/17 rear for a ride height of 25.66 inches, which of the following tires would be the best front to run:

245/45 height 25.7

245/40 height 24.7

235/45 height 25.4

235/40 height 24.4

I know rake is set in the suspension, but I am wondering how tire height co-relates to rake. I also know that these tires have slightly different widths, but I am strictly asking a rake related question here so I can understand it better.

I am thinking 235/45 gives me a slightly raked ride height but retains a pretty close overall height?

Is it a bad idea to run a tire like the 235/40 with a height over an inch lower than the rear?

I guess you can upset the speedo if you alter the rear.
Alter either end of the car and you could alter the braking, not sure if that really matters though. Anyone have any experience ?

Gary, those spacers look similair to the ones I have except for the colour. I think mine are painted too though. They are silver.

I have 996TT wheels on my car. I don't have any pics handy, but I can get some and also get the specs on the spacers I used. I don't recall what size they were, but I don't think they were anything too crazy in width.

I bought the TT wheels yesterday and ordered spacers on EBay also... 1" front, 2" rear.

Haven't got the wheels yet but the spacers are here and I have a question for any that have mounted the 996TT wheels on their 930.

The OEM studs are extra long to accomodate the OEM 1.x" spacers. With the OEM spacer removed the studs will be higher than the face of the new 2" spacers when it is put in place. Did you replace the studs with a standard length in the rear?

Thanks

I think you will find the wheels are scalloped so the studs will be fine. My 993tt replicas were anyway.

Look what a buddy posted on another forum. This is for a 997tt but I would think the 996 would be the same. It is scalloped out like my 993tt replicas were.
