I am looking at getting some summer rims and tires for my car to update the look from the wheels I already have had for a long time.

I curently have 205/55 P3000 Cinturato all season tires with 15" Technomagnesio Rims. I would like to get either 17" or 18" rims. (not sure what style but i have a few in mind)

Questions:

Will 225's have any clearence issues with them being a good amount wider then 205's?

Is it easier to get 17's or 18's dealing with tires?

Average how much more do you have to pay for 18's rather then get 17's?

I heard tires for 17's were easier to come by then 18's is this true?

How exactly do I know what wheel offset i need?

And also if im lowering my car is it a good idea to also change the camber kits as well or is that just extra work thats not needed?

Powder,

Go to Tirerack.com and do some playing around. You can see what size wheels and tires will fit your car. I believe they even show a 19" wheel and tire combo that'll fit our car. 18's are no harder to get than 17's. Nowadays, if your not riding on dubs, your old school.

Oh, and get camber kits for the front and back if you plan on lowering your car. I did and my tires have worn perfectly. ;)

By the way, welcome to the forums. I see you've only posted a few times now so I assume your a newbie. Welcome!

I have went to tirerack many times but the wheels they have just dont appeal to me that much. So pretty much anything 18x7.5 is going to have no probelms with clearence, am i right? And as far as camber kits what do you recomend and who is a good brand to buy that will be reliable and easy to install myself with the help of a family friend onf mine who was a mechanic and has the nessesary tools to do suspension work.

And yes thank you I am a new memeber of this sight and I havnt really got into my car as much as i would like to in the future b/c well I didnt have the money that I am beggining to get now. I have been a member of a Porsche Forum for years now b/c those cars are one of my passions as my father and I have loved them since driving on the autobahn in a 993 Porsche Targa in germany.
