I hope that is a typo and you are not really considering 305/40s. You'd look like an old school drag racer with those. ;)

Actually, they are 305/35, my bad. Just over an inch wider than the 275's I'm running now and slightly shorter but keeping a positive rake.. It's an experiment and I'm relying on the guidance of the race shop here that is helping me. With the way we are setting up the suspension plus a Guard diff. we think it's going to work really well.

1) You are looking at a std wheel with a custom offset. Did you even find that size/offset on the OZ site as being available in a Porsche fitment?
2) 275/40-18 is what a lot of 987 peeps run. Oversized there but smaller than a 981 fitment.
3) Is it Hank's that is suggesting this 305? What is their experience on a 981 or are you the guinea pig? Are you after gearing mods via tires?

This size of wheel is used on the 2005 C4S (is that a 996?)and others. Tire Rack sells them. I did a dry fit with a 11" wheel with a different offset that I borrowed from someone just to see how close we were. It was a 64 offset and since I had on a 7mm spacer, it told me what I needed to know. Too much offset, but if a backed it off to 45 and got rid of the spacer it would be about right. It will fit. What we don't know yet is how it will affect the handling. I currently am using Nittos 275/40/18 in the rear.
It's not Hanks. Will send PM with more info since I am not comfortable mentioning names in public forums unless they are posting or have their permission. Just out of curiousity. Will send PM.
