Over the winter months my front right got some very minor curb rash. I’d planned to get this repaired, but because I have the turbo wheels the machined clear coated finish isn’t something any local repair shop wants to tackle. They say they can make it look better but not like new.

I’m looking at replacing the wheel and have found a good deal on a 997 front, but am not sure this is a match for the 987. I'm hoping that they are the same width, but really not sure on the offset. I would like to assume this, but since the turbo is a widebody 911 thought they could be different.

The 997 turbo front is 19x8.5 (ET-57mm)

The 987 turbo front is 19x (8? or 8.5?) (ET-??)

Hoping someone might know this off hand or be able to point me in the direction of where to look.

I believe further browsing I found my answer. The fronts are not the same, 987 turbo wheels are 8x19, 997 turbo wheels are 8.5x19, but do have the same offset on the front.

997.362.156.02 Turbo vorne 8J x 19ET57 10,3kg
997.362.158.08 Turbo hinten 9,5J x 19ET46 11,1kg

I found this to be an excellent source for OEM part #, sizes and weights for our wheels.
