    Help with aftermarket wheels

    After waiting two years for the 997 Targa and then another two years for the facelift, I finally ordered a Targa 4S last September.  I then started looking into aftermarket wheels and after a lot of investigation, including discussions with the manufacturer, I ordered a set of Champion RS97-20" wheels. 

    The good news is that last week, both the car and the wheels arrived at my dealer.  Bad news?  According to the dealer, the tires are rubbing, both in fhe front and the rear.  Champion swears that they have many installs of this combo on 997 4's, and they're going to talk to my dealer's installation team tomorrow.  But I've got a bad feeling and was wondering whether anyone out there had any knowledge or information on whether these wheels should fit my car.

    width = 325.  Don't know aspect ratio.

    Why did you go aftermarket? Porsche have such a choice of wheels?

    Re: Help with aftermarket wheels

    i would recommend you stick with 305 on the 20 inch.

    The question is now, did Champion fit 325 tires, or did they limit themselves to 315s?

    325s only work on the GT2 because that car has tauter suspension, reducing flex of the control arm bearings and displacement of the wheels during bump and rebound. You unfortunately have to expect rubbing with the 4S's softer suspension.
