295/30/19 or 275/30/19 on 10-inch rim?

Upgrading to 19" wheels soon.
Some of the wheels i'm looking at are 19x10 et50mm rear and 19x8 et50mm front.

If I go 295/30/19 on the rear that ends up being over 4% larger wheel diameter than my current 285/30/18 rears. If I go 275/30/19 I'm at about 3% larger, which is a bit better.

Will the 275/30/19's look too narrow, is this not recommended, will it be ok etc? As always, any experienced input is appreciated.

early 996's came with 265 rears on a 10' wheel so the 275 won't be undersized at all. That said I've seen people stuff 295's on a 10' wheel as well. 275 is probably more optimal, less weight, and will have a crisper feel due to less sidewall play.

Agreed, a 10.5 wheel would be more desirable for a 295 and 11 is optimal.
In your case stick to a 275.

285 on a 10 is fine. That was the optional factory wheel.

I have 295 fitted 10.5 wheel on narrow body. Fit perfectly under my fender and look aggressive. Corvette owners always come up to me and compliment the steam rollers.

I run 295 slicks on stock twisty's and it fits fine. I run 285 on the street. Not sure if the 19" wheel make a difference.

The wheels I just ordered from Wheel Dynamics are 11.5" rears with 315's...those are steam rollers. I can't wait to put those babys on. I'm having them painted so it is going to take a few weeks. I'll post pictures when I get them.

Yeah, the tire width of 295 would be fine, it's the wheel offset that makes the diff.
For example, a 19x11 et50 rim sticks outwards 30mm over an 18x10 et67 rim. That's too wide for a nb car without fender mods. So regardless of tire width it wouldn't fit. Correct rim offset is the key.

That's Flojo1's car. One of the OLC from Pcars.us.

Contact Carlos @ Wheel Dynamics is the man. He has wheels that can go on a 996 N/A up to 315 in the rear without fender rolling.

That is who I went through...and I have to say that even though I have not received the wheels, I have really enjoyed working with Carlos. I'd recommend him to anyone. He is having Eli paint them (Hurry up Eli I need to get those on my car) and I have heard Eli does great work also.


can't wait to get them...
