Another wheel fit issue

Been reading all I can about what wheel to get for my 993 c2, found a set but not really sure what to believe if they will fit and look good.
These are the figures, any thoughts?
2X 10J 225 45 18 ET 35
2X 8.5J 225 40 18 ET 54

Edit: They're suppose to be Porsche Turbo twisted but has been on another car.

Get the parts number off the wheels and do a search to determine if they are genuine Porsche wheels or knockoffs.

I'm waiting for the partnumber from seller.
I'm abit puzzled by ET35 rear? Aren't they supposed to be around 50 for 993?

The fronts will fit a narrow body 993 fine

The rears will not, they are widebody fitments

oe Turbo twists for a n/b are 8ET 52 & 10ET65
oe Turbo twists for a w/b are 8ET52 & 10ET40

Yes, absolutely, the wheels will fit! ...but not so sure about the 295 aspect ratio of the rear tire on a 10" wheel. Seems kinda wide...but not all aspect ratios are created equal for some reason, and vary from tire mfg to tire mfg.

993.362.134.06 7.5J x 18 ET 50 fits but the front space is 4.35mm less than 8ET54, the wheel is a bit more inset

993.362.140.04 10J x 18 ET 65 Tyres - 295/35ZR 18 x2 that;s the correct width and Et for a n/b 993, 265/35 x18 is an oe tire fitment, 285/30 can be a bit tough to fit, depends on ride height and suspension. I've seen 295/30 it's tougher to fit, 295/35 will be even more difficult to fit.

So i would need spacers in the front to push them out about 5mm. I have those already so it would be perfect.

In front you can use an even larger spacer, I've fitted 235/40 on 8.5ET 54 which have 15mm larger front space than the 7Et50 225/45 combo.

Bill,
You have me confused...
You state:
Quote:
Tyres - 295/35ZR 18 x2 that;s the correct width and Et for a n/b 993
...but then you say:
Quote:
295/35 will be even more difficult to fit.
I'm wondering how the 295/35, can be correct for a nb 993; but then you say the 295/35, will be even more difficult to fit.

Also isn't the term ET, the same as offset, and a term used to describe wheel backspacing; and not normally used to describe tires?

I'm sure I must be reading or interpreting your discription incorrectly, yes?
Thx,
Paul

993.362.140.04 10J x 18 ET 65 - that's the correct width and ET for a n/b 993 wheel, 265/35 x18 is an oe tire fitment for a n/b 993. Many successfully use 285/30 on these wheels(yes, I was referring to the wheels not the tires), the lower the car and the more street suspension setup the more work will be needed to accommodate these, I've seen a few w/ those wheels and 295/30 also at race height and w/ full race suspension setup, I don't know what is needed to get these to fit but it has to be more involved than fitting 285/30

295/35 x18 is taller and will be even more difficult to fit

w/b 993 used 10ET40 w/ 285/30x18 tires

The ET or offset of the tire isn't often referred to but it will always be the same as the ET of the wheel
