    hi i have a set of porsche 996 wheels and i wanted to know if anyone has a set of porsche wheels on their car already? i need advice on the spacers i would need and if there would be any problems with ride and so on. if it seems like a long mission then i think i will go for a set of bbs lms (which ones fit without any adapters? the 147?) any advice would be nice!

    What size and offset are the Porsche wheels you've already got and what car are they to go on would be a big help?

    You will more than likely need 4 front wheels, doubt you'd get the 10" wide rears on!

    they are 18" with 7.5 fronts and 10" rears. to go on an audi s3. no suspension mods yet. do the rears seem too wide?

    The rear arches will accomodate 255 section tyres no problems, and possibly 265s with the correct offset, but running 10" wide means these tyres are gonna look stretched!

    i dont mind having stretched tyres. just need someone to reccommend a place which will be able to fit them in the london/gloucester area? i am still thinkin of just selling these wheels and getting a set of bbs lms. which ones would fit a s3 straight out of the box? are they still available or will i need to trawl throught the classifieds?
