996 Turbo AWD Compatable Tire Sizes and Review

Post by TheDeckMan » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:34 am

2002 996 Turbo
H&R RSS Coil Overs
Adjustable Rear Toe Links
Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arms aka "Dog Bones"
Adjustable Thrust Arms
Solid LCA Bushings

Nitto NT01 on 996 Turbo Hollow Spokes
Front 245/40-18
Rear 315/30-18

So far have ~4.5k miles on the first set of just street driving and they are holding up great with ~80% still left on them, a little scary without heat in them on cold roads but once they warm up there is no drama. Rain driving is fine if not driving through lots of standing water.

*Requires slight bending of rear liner bracket attached to the intercooler duct so the tire does not rub on the liner.
Continental ContiforceContact

Got about 8k miles out of a set and ran 1.5 sets, both sets once past 50% wear started to have balance issues and shaking above 70mph, one tire shifted a belt. Good grip and rain traction. I would not buy these again.

Front 225/40-18
Rear 295/30-18
