    Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    Would anybody know if the stock 997 GT3 wheel fit ; a 997 carrera or 997 C2S. If not what can you do to make them fit. Thankyou for your input.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    Should fit, otherwise might need spacers, but since the bolt pattern is the same, just cross reference the offsets to see what spacers you need.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    with the 996-series there are lots of MK1's carrera with the MK1 GT3 rims. But I've never seen a carrera (neither MK1/MK2) with the MK2 GT3 rims..
    It would look nice though!

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    yes ,change only the ET .

    997 C2 and GT3 are both narrowbodies - slight differences in wheel widths and offsets but the GT3 wheels should fit no problem.

    Thanks for your response guys. Much appreciated.

    Just make sure the wheels are GT3 wheels and not GT3RS wheels.

    997 GT3 wheels will fit the narrow body 997 C2 with no problem. 997 GT3RS wheels will fit the wide body 997 C4 with no problem (as well as the Targa and the TT).

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    if u did, show us some pics.. i am thhinking of doing the same... anyone selling their GT3 wheels?

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    I had seen this done on another 997
    Finally got around to the install
    More than you wanted to know below



    Front Wheel/Tire
    Stock 19x8 Offset 57mm
    GT3 19x8.5 Offset 58mm

    Changing from Stock to GT3 moves outer rim out 05mm or 0.2In
    Changing from Stock to GT3 moves inner rim 07mm or 0.3In closer to suspension

    Measuring actual wheel/Tire setup (Front)
    Outer tire face is 1/8In or 03mm further out
    Inner tire face is 1/8In or 03mm further from the Suspension
    (I know - But that is what I measured)

    Each Stock Front wheel with tire mounted weighed 46 lbs
    Each GT3 Front wheel with tire mounted weighed 50 lbs


    Rear Wheel/Tire
    Stock 19x11 Offset 67
    GT3 19x12 Offset 68mm

    Changing from Stock to GT3 moves outer rim out 12mm or 0.45In
    Changing from Stock to GT3 moves inner rim 14mm or 0.55In closer to suspension

    Measuring actual wheel/Tire setup (Rear)
    Outer tire face is 1/8In or 03mm further out
    Inner tire face is 7/8In or 22mm closer to Strut

    Each Stock rear wheel with tire mounted weighed 55 lbs
    Each GT3 Front wheel with tire mounted weighed 64 lbs




    Other Stuff
    Total Weight added = 26 Lbs for 4 wheels and tires
    The mounting flange on the GT3 wheel is slightly thicker than the stock flange


    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    The GT3 wheels and tires add 26lbs! Wow! If anything you would have thought it would have been the same, less, or maybe just slightly more.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    Do you have any more pics of the car? Looks great!!! Needs the GT3 centres removing though.

    Cast wheels are usually heavier than forged plus the GT3 wheels are bigger (more mass) - 8.5 v. 8.0 and 12.0 v. 11.0

    exactly.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    I didn't know the GT3's wheels were cast.
    That's odd. Usually forging (or milling) yields a stronger, lighter well.

    There's nothing overly complex about the shape. I wonder why Porsche decided to cast the wheels.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    DavidS, glad to see they fit. They look great. Now you just need to put on the matching porsche crest center piece.

    Don't know either - seems like the only 997 forged wheel is on the TT.

    Re: Will GT3 wheels fit 997 Carrera or C2S?

    Thanks for the highly informative post, DavidS... more pics of 3/4 views from front and back PLEASE, sir!!!

    Looks wicked with the 305 meats. BTW is that 50% window tint or?
