wheels.



The style of Porsche wheel that came stock on the is known as “Mille Miglia Cup 1”.

The lug spacing dimensions (common to all Porsches ... but very few other car manufacturers - bear this in mind when buying wheels for your is 5 x 130.

This means that there are 5 wheel bolts on a 130mm circle. If you get an incredibly low bargain price and buy buy wheels that the bolt pattern is not 5 x 130 they might make really good holders for potted plants, but you ain't putting the suckers on your .

Factory stock rims are 17” in diameter and were the same wheels as the 1991/92 964 3.3 liter Turbo but not the 1993/4 964 Turbo 3.6 which had three piece rims.

The only difference between the '91/'92 Turbo wheels and those used on the was the rim width. The Turbo had 7” wide front wheels and 9” wide rears. The came stock with the same 7” wide front wheels but had 8” rear wheels as opposed to the Turbo's 9's.

A very common modification for the was to move the 8” rear wheels to the front, and put a set of 9” Turbo rims on the rear.

Center caps.

The stock centercaps were silver/gray plastic with a Porsche crest stamped in them [show me]. They are attached to the wheel by seven prongs on the back that snapped into the hole in the wheel center. A very popular modification to the wheel is to fit the plastic centercaps from the European [show me].

993 RS center caps.
