    996 spare fit a 997?

    Will the space saver in the 996, fit the 997? If so, I may get one, and store it up front for peace of mind?

    Re: 996 spare fit a 997?

    No- outside diameter of all tires ( not wheel ) increased almost 1 inch for the 997 ( with appropriate transmission regearing /speedometer calibration for the increased rolling circumference ) . It was the first diameter change in over 25 years for the 911 series.

    I just want to be able to bolt something on, that would hold air, if I were to have a blow out 30 miles from no where. I don't mean put it on and drive 80 mph, just something to have so I could limp home. So my question is will the 996 wheel bolt over the brake caliper, and wheel lugs line up?

    There is a good chance the 996's smaller diameter tire will mess up the 997 drive train electronics.
