1996 993 C4S Wheel/Tire Size Change

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model: 993 C4S; Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 99,000km;

Joel, I read a lot of the posts re: the tire/wheel sizes. We've spoken about this as well, and I'm looking at Fikse wheels. They were recommending increasing the front wheels from 18x8 to 18x8.5, and the rears from 18x10 to 18x11 (or even 18x11.5). My question is: what are the tire sizes that I could use on these wheels. I take the front would still use 225/40-18 (unless you can suggest otherwise), but I'm not sure on the rear size (and if there is even a tire that would fit that). Now, as you state in a lot of your posts - and no disagreement on my part, the stock setup is fine - but if there's something to be gained by this then that would be great. Also, I'd like to keep with the N* ratings for the tires rather than go with something not tested by Porsche if I can. Any suggestions are welcome.Regards,-- Enrico
