    OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Would appreciate if someone could provide the complete detail front and rear wheel detailed specifications of the standard OEM Carrera S wheels? What is the wheel offset and weight?
    After reading all those posts and drooling over the different aftermarket wheel options, I am definitely having mine custom built to an increased width without the need for additional spacers.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Front 8 J x 19 ET 57
    Rear 11 J x 19 ET 67
    Don't know the weights

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Thanks Trundle for the prompt response.
    Anyone knows if the Carrera 4S have the similar wheel specs?

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Was scanning thru earlier posts and someone has indicated the wheel weights to be 23lbs and 27lbs respectively.

    So is it safe to install front 8.5J x 19 and 11.5J x 19 and keeping the same offsets without the need for additional spacers?

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    The new Carrera sport wheel is:

    8.5 J x 19 ET 55 in the front
    11.5 J x 19 ET 67 in the back

    On the 4S it comes standard with 17mm spacers on the back!

    .

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    something is wrong Gnil, 17mm it VERY much . Who is behind this philosophy is a mystery

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Thanks gnil

    Is it 17mm in combination with the OEM Carrera S wheel?

    I presume the Carrera sport wheel option for the Carrera S still uses the same 235 and 295 tires.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    No..it's option XCC
    They come with 305/30 tyres on the back ... for carrera C2/S and C4/S !!!!! BUT for the C4/S they include 17mm spacers on the back!!!!!
    Maybe the wheel is less on the outside ( sorry, don't know how to explain it well in english) then with the carrera classic or carrera S wheels so they could fit the larger wheel and tyres on the C2 without it being more 'on the outside' then with standards. But then have to add the spacers on the C4 due to the wide body...

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Just had a look at the order guide. All wheels besides the new carrera sport exist in two dimensions for the back:

    S, Classic, and Sport Design Wheels:
    - C & CS: 11 J x 19 ET 67 Tyre 295/30 ZR 19
    - C4 & C4S: 11 J x 19 ET 51 Tyre 305/30 ZR 19

    Carrera Sport:
    - All models: 11,5 J x 19 ET 67 Tyre 305/30 ZR 19

    This explains why the 4-wheelers get the spacers included with the Carrera Sport wheel.

    Does that mean that the tyres on the C4 ( 305 on a 11J wheel) are going to 'move' more in corners due to the fact that they are less 'strained' ?

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    I suppose the difference in ET (Offset) dimensions represents the additional spacers 16 or 17mm (ET67 - ET51).
    It is making sense now.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    What does the Carrera Sport Wheel look like? Anyone have any pictures?

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    carrera sport

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Many thanks for the picture.

    I'm a bit confused though. The 2006 order guide says that the Carrera Sport wheel option code is XRR. Is that correct? Or is the code XCC as stated in this thread?

    Thanks guys. I have an October build S on order and am strongly considering changing my Carrera Classics to Carrera Sports.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    The new Carrera Sport's code is XRR

    Thanks Gnil. I just got off the phone with my salesman. I switched from the Carrera Classics to the Carrera Sports. Lighter is better, no? I love the look (they remind me of the 10 spokes 17" wheels on my 996) And I bet the 305/30s on the back look hot.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    ...You will have to post some pics as soon as you get it!! Maybe you will be the firt one to be able to show us how it looks on a 'private' car.

    Re: OEM Wheel Specifications of Carrera S

    Just weighted the set of Carrera Classics that I have in my garage. 23 lbs front 27 lbs. rear. Used a regular scale so could be off slightly. I was told by the dealer that these were the lightest 19's Porsche has (this was before the sport wheel was announced).
