    997 c4s wheel spacer advice

    have the 19 inch carrera sport rims, which porsche suggests are not compatible with spacers.  however on the c4s there seems to be too much of recessed topline, and that it would look better with spacers.  does anyone know if you really can't put these on, or is this advice for non c4's?  Also, trying to decide between the 5mm all around or going bigger in the back if i can in fact put these on?  Thanks guys.


    Re: 997 c4s wheel spacer advice

    I used to have 15mm in the rear and 7mm in the front on my previous 997 C4S with Carrera Sport wheels. The wheels where perfectly flush with the wheel arc. No issues with the wheels touching or scraping the arc. IMHO perfect spacer sizes for this car and these wheels.

    Which suspension do you have? It could look a bit funny if the car sits high. I had mine lowered with Bilstein PSS10 suspension too. 

    Unfortunately I cannot find any photo surprise

    Appreciate the note... It is factory suspension with pasm so I assume sits a bit higher than yours? My other thought is just go w the 5mm as something that is a bit better than what I have?

    I think the 5mm makes little difference in the rear. You need at least 10mm Smiley Then again, some people say I am a bit obsessed with spacers Smiley

    Out of luck, I did find some old photos from my Guards Red baby with 15mm installed.

    Red looks great! So if I don't lower, think I just go with factory 5mm to take up a bit of space? Also was a bit worried about voiding cpo warranty coverage with aftermarket parts...?
