Help for 911 SC wheel offset


TE911

Recommended Posts

Should be perfect fit

Thanks Clutch-Monkey hopefully they will fit perfect.

Yep agreed, good fitment on both front and rear.
Im currently running 235/45 R17 17x8 +13 fronts and 255/40 R17 17x9 +5 on rear, and have checked, there is still space on the inside of the wheel.

BiltzKonig Thank you for your comparison. They are almost the same size, so that's good to hear that i wont need to flare any of the fenders.

Please post up photos when youve got it all setup. I would like to see what 265 on a 17" looks like. Also, what brand of Tyre?

Dont worry i will post up some pics. I'm curious how they'd look as well that's why i asked if they would fit. It has Goodyear eagle F1 tyres?? Not sure if they are good or not.

that is the exact sizes and offsets of my old cup wheels on an SC, you won't need any guard work :)

Great News!  :D  Thanks Clutch-Monkey. Do you have any pics that you could post?

Now i have nothing to worry about other than their condition and the tyres.

Okay so i picked them up, the seller is a forum member. Pleasure to deal with!

He told that they wouldn't fit but i took the gamble. He was right the rear wheels stick out about 5cm. I'm guessing it because there are already some thick spacers in place. 

I'm hoping that i only need to remove the old spacers altogether or get new spacers?

Any help / advice on the matter?

lose the spacers, you don't need them. 

It is much easier to simply have wheels that fit, rather than run spacers ;)

they might actually be my old wheels of you got them off here haha

I'll see if it fits well without the spacers this arvo. i hope your right :)

They were advertised on Porsche Club NSW marketplace, but the seller did say he got them from WA.

Okay so i removed the spacers and they fit perfect, but there is less than 1cm of room from them rubbing the inner guards.  Is that normal Clutch-Monkey?

Looks fine to me (I have 9.5"s on the back and 8"s on the front of my sc).

what brakes are you running?

Ok well i guess ill have to go out and get some tyres for them. :)   The clearance is really tight behind the wheels so i wasn't sure if it was normal.

I think its got the standard 911sc brakes.

Yep thats spot on fitment! Are you planning to leave them silver? Wonder what powder coated a darker gray would look like.

Save the ducktails :D have you already sourced one? Whats need for the interior?
 

I like them silver but now that you mentioned it gray might look good :)

Yeah i ordered the ducktail from John at Zag Automotive, Great guys!

The interior is gray and really old and ratty, going to reupholster it in black with some parts in alcantara.
