Looking to increase the performance of your 2014-2019 991 GT3? Look no further than this Porsche 991 GT3 wheel and tire fitment guide covering the 991.1 and 991.2 GT3 and Touring models. With OEM+ fitment with our 20” lineup as well as Performance street and track fitments using 19” wheels. We have you covered no matter what you plan on using your GT3 for. With Forged options like the VS-5RS, EC-7RS, and SM-10RS we also have numerous design options to choose from.

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.

* The factory 6 piston 410mm PCCBs require 20" wheels for proper clearance. Read our article for more info.

Rear Lower Control Arm Bolt Modification - Required for 19" Wheels

If you have steel brakes, downsizing to a 19" wheel and tire package is advantageous for many reasons including a reduction in weight and an increase in tire options. By decreasing the diameter of the wheels, the inner barrel of the rear wheels get quite close to the factory lower control arm "stabilizer bolt". To improve clearance, we recommend replacing the stock hex head bolts with Porsche 72mm pan head bolts - part # 999-073-530-01 which are under $10. 

Rear Axle Steering (RAS) Clearance

All 19" and 20" APEX wheels are optimized to clear rear axle steering.
