    Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    Here are a few pics of my car with 15 mm spacers at the back.

    I will not keep them on, as I find it to be just slightly too much...and it does not match the front.

    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    I think Carrera/Carrera S needs spacer in front instead of rear in order to increase initial turn in response. Light front end sometimes protest to turn in.

    BTW, I love your threads that have many pictures in them, Gnill.  Keep them coming ;)

    I'd like to know the little one's opinion. He examined very carefully.

    Lovely picture Smiley

    I find that in very tight bends there is sometimes over-roadholding/too much traction at the rear. Doesn't the increased track width make this more pronounced?

    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    I think it's a bit too much too, doesn't look functional anymore...

    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    Your pictures are always so excellent I now look for your threads!  The spacers aren't over the top, the tire/wheel remain within the fender, but it has to be to your taste.

     Gnil, that is not too much. Keep those 15mm spacers in the rear and put 7mm in the front. The car will look so much better.

    I do think it´s to much indeed. I order my car with 5mm original Porsche spacers. From what I´ve been hearing, it doesn´t make a big difference, but this is actually what I´m looking for, it will look different only for those who have an "expert eye" Smiley.

    Why no one makes 10mm or even 12mm spacers for this car, I dunno.  For my tastes, the 15mm spacers look a TINY bit too big on the rear of the C2, the 7mm spacers look a tiny bit too small.  10-12mm would probably be "Goldilocks", I think.


    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    Gnil, do you find any difference in cornering with the spacers?  Would having put them in the front made a difference to the turn-in, or would it have spoilt the balance?

    I did not leave the 15mm spacers on. I have only the 5 mm and I do not feel any difference.

    I would not go for 15 at the front...I don't think it even would work as the rim would probably be outside of the wing. But it would be too much anyway and would certainly add understeer.

    What manufacturer and where did you buy them?  I'm curious.


    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    On my Boxster I got 15mm in the front and 23mm in the rear with the 19" Carrera S wheels. The spacers are from FVD and these are the maximum widths front and rear with German TÜV approval.

    I would not recommend wider than this

    You can get 14mm spacers made by H&R, distributed in the U.S. by Automotion. I have them on the rear of my 2006 Carrera Coupe. They help fill the gap (percieved) inthe wheel well by moving the wheel closer to the arch. Makes the non-S look like it's sitting lower.

    I was looking at springs the other day at H&R but all they had for my car WAS spacers.

    I think the wheel should be flush with the bodywork and your pics looked good that way in the rear.

     

    Good shot of Jr.

    Boothedesigns makes a 10 MM spacer for Porsches along with several other sizes not normally available. They are very reasonably priced also. Check 'em out . Google the name and their web site will come up. As an official disclaimer, I am not affiliated with them in any way. Know them from surfing the net only.

    Re: Carrera 2S.2 with 15 mm spacers ( pics)

    FYI..

    Large spacer offsets cause greater unbalanced loads on wheel bearings, wheel spindles,  and other suspension components increasing wear and increasing chance of early and catastrophic failures.

    Large offset spacers on front also amplify wheel reactions due to bumps and place additional loading on tie rods and steering rack and pinion.

     I'm planning on running 14mm rear and 7mm front on my 997. Direct swop out from my  986.
