Porsche wheel width
 
Are there any factory 17" porsche wheels that are less than 7" wide ? Thanks

Good question. Apart from the space saver 3,5J wheel, I don't think so, but then again, are there tires less then 195mm in 17" ?

Well, on the tire part apparently yes.... :eek:

Better working link....

But factory 17 inch porsche wheels (no space savers) less then 7J.... I haven't seen them. But would be interested in seeing some.

We mounted some 7,5 inch wide Cayenne wheel under a type3 a had them narrowed at the front by nearly 30mm.
Wheel is now 6,4 inch wide and the tyre we mounted is a 165/40x17.

Those things look awesome! How heavy are they?

JK Fab October 5th 2009 22:00

In a search I did on here showed another thread, and it stated they are 26lbs each

krukab October 6th 2009 02:26

They are build for a car (Cayenne) that weights nearly 2400 kg, so 26 lbs for one wheels is not that much ;)

However, the funny thing is that the narrowed wheels needed less lead then the original 7,5inch wide wheels :D

I'm going to fit Boxster Wheels in my 1974 beetle...
I had a couple at the moment one 7J and one 8.5J and I'd like to fit with adaptor (maybe 1" thick) front and rear
What do you recomend for fit under stock fenders?
It's better if I look for 3x7J or another couple of 7J and 8.5J?
Thanks

tirlese January 7th 2010 20:25

Sorry..rims are 17"!!:o

For stock fenders you're going to have the best luck with 7's all around given your choices...the steering box stops will probably need to be adjusted a bit, so that you don't rub.

I'm running 6.5" ET55's with 195/45's and 17mm spacers on the front of my 77 Std Beetle with Ghia spindles/discs and an AVIS adjustable beam, lowered just a little. On back I've run 16x7" ET40's with 225/50's - little or no spacer - stock re-drilled drums.
