    Any experience with 17 mm spacer on the back ?

    My dealer will kindly offer me free 17 mm spacers for the back of my 997.2 C2S , as he says the new Carrera S rim is even more on the ' inside' then the old one and the 5 mm spacers do not bring the rims out enough.

    For pure esthetics I am convinced it would look great.

    BUT....what about dynamics on the track ? I am a bit worried it would get too much grip to the back and push the front out in tight corners ( more understeer) .

    Has anyone tracked a 997 S with 17 mm spacers on the back and what is the feeling like ?

    Re: Any experience with 17 mm spacer on the back ?

    Hi Gnil,

    My 997S had 17mm spacers on the back, and 5mm on the front - and drove just fine. Sadly I didn't track it without so a bit difficult to compare directly. Wouldn't this just make it closer to the RS setup though? Presumably that has quite a bit wider rear track?
