    888 coupe wheels on coupe

    Ive read loads of posts debating if the 888 coupe wheels fit without rubbing and today i found out they are perfect.
    I bought a set of oz supertourismos in the same offset/pcd/width as the 888 coupe wheels,my BBS alloys needed 12mm spacers to fit over the porshe calipers. The OZ alloys went straight on with no trouble and dont rub atall even with 4 in the car.
    They are fitted with 235/40/17 tyres and they stick to the road quite well the car is lowered on eibach 30mm springs and spax shocks.

    Odd that because genuine 888 alloys rubbed like a bitch with just me in the car (Mk4 Convertible), lowered 30mm as well. Are they definately ET35?

    Yep 100% et35 and 8" wide, they had to be to clear the brembo calipers thats why i got them. I reck he rear culd g down another 20mm without ant problems.
    Ive never really rated the handling and grip of either of my coupe T`s but with this size of wheel and tyre fitted the handling and grip is transformed, i can see now why Clarkson even said the 888 was good on track.
    Just need the lsd fiting now and i think she will be ready for track abuse
    I have a spare wheel aswell so i will take a pic of the markings on the back to prove.
