No they won't fit without some rear fender work. Rear offset is different. You'll have to roll the fenders and aggressive neg. camber

Chad,

If you are asking if Turbo Twist styled wheels will fit, they also come in offsets that fit C2. See avatar.

The front fit between the two cars is the same. Turbo wheels will need 15-20mm spacers to fit a narrowbody.

Tut tut tut Damon.... Other way round - WBs need a 15-20mm spacer to fit NB wheels.

By Turbo wheels, you mean WB offset right? If you want Turbo twists for your C2, the NB rears with ET 65 should fit no problem at all.

Here is a summary of the wheels you are talking about. They are called “Technology” wheels…commonly referred to as “Turbo Twist”. They come in a hollow spoke and solid spoke version. I have the hollow spoke version on my '97 narrowbody (C2). They bolt directly on...no spacers required.

Hollow spoke "Technology" wheels:
8 x 18 - 993.362.136.00 - ET52 - 19.95 lb (front)
10 x 18 - 993.362.140.01 - ET65 - 23.36 lb (narrow body rear)
10 x 18 - 993.362.140.00 - ET40 - 25.13 lb (wide body rear)

Solid spoke “Technology” wheels:
8 x 18 - 993.362.136.01 - ET52 - 25.57 lb (front)
10 x 18 - 993.362.140.04 - ET65 - 29.32 lb (narrow body rear)
10 x 18 - 993.362.140.03 - ET40 - 31.08 lb (wide body rear)
