Default 993 NB twist wheels flush fit a 964 C2???

Hi guys

Learning my way around the 964 chassis in terms of wheel fitment...

Question: for a standard narrow body 964 (Carrera 2), would 993 NB offset turbo twists fit the car with no issues, and provide a nice almost flush stance?

993 NB Turbo Twist specs
18x8 ET52 front
18x10 ET65 rears

will spacers be needed? or camber?

Appreciate the help - I have searched and read many sources, makes me more rather than less confused.

Thanks

i think you will need a 10 mm spacer for the rears, otherwise you may rub against some lines that run along the body inside the rear wheel well.

I have been thinking about using the same wheels on my car but like you I am also fairly confused. The posts I have read say you need to use 18mm spacers on the rear to get ET47 for the perfect fit with 10" wide rim.

This would make sense as stock fitment of these wheels on a NB 993 leaves the rear wheel pretty tucked in under the rear fender lip.

There is also mention of some brake line plumbing in the case of the 964 rear fender to be avoided, also necessitating a spacer. I have found on my 993 that one needs about 1 inch of spacer width to get the wheels poking out from their OEM mounting position to be close to flush.

Would be good to hear a current 964 owner who has done this confirm this is correct...

They will fit here's a 964 w/ MY02 BBS same spec as the tts


tires are usually 345/35 & 275/35 though some use 285/30 too

no spacer in front 21mm spacer in back, 65-21 = 44 is the net ET in back

Hey Bill,

I think you meant 245/35 (F) and 275/35 (R)

Guys- 993 NB wheels 10 et 65 will fit without a doubt but I would add 15-18mm spacers (resulting et 47-50 mm) if you want flush on a 964. Here's a pic of my NB 64 with 10 et 47. I had just lowered the car down when this pic was taken so suspension hadn't settled. The top of the wheel tucked-in slightly after I backed out of the garage. Sorry no pic of the wheel with suspension settled.
