Looking to improve the performance or change the aesthetic of your 2007-2012 997 GT3RS or GT2RS? Look no further than this Porsche 911 997 GT2/RS & GT3RS Wheel & Tire Fitment Guide. We have fitments from Performance Street and Track to Hardcore Track to fit whatever your needs may be. With options like our Forged VS-5RS and EC-7RS and the Flow Formed SM-10, you have a number of wheel design and construction options to choose from. These are a great way to reduce unsprung and rotational mass.

Brake Clearance Information

In the engineering phase of wheel development we 3D scan factory brakes and review 2D aftermarket brake templates in order to optimize our barrel profiles and spoke curvatures. As a result, our wheels offer massive brake clearance so you can run the smallest possible wheel diameter. Our 18" wheels clear the optional factory PCCB.

These wheel and tire configurations are best suited for hardcore track junkies looking to extract every ounce of performance they can out of their GT3RS or GT2RS. Everything from Extreme Summer tires to full Racing Slicks are commonly used depending on your experience behind the wheel, class rules, etc. Most notably, these fitments incorporate wider 9” front wheels (or 10" wide if you are real hardcore).
