Yes they fit, I have genuine 991 4S wheels on my 997 4S. You do have to sacrifice some comfort though as you'll need a little bit smaller side wall than the 19's.

I had to do quite a lot of research into it when I bought these 3 years ago because you have to keep the rolling radious front to rear ratio within a few percent or it can cause problems for four wheel drive cars.

I'll have a look at my offsets and tire sizes as I can't remember exactly what they are off the top of my head. Fronts fit fine but the back needed a 15mm spacer.

Hopefully I can attach a photo..

That looks fantastic! Great job. I’ve got a crush on the 991 GTS centrelock wheels, but those run a close second

Your car looks extremely handsome just as it is.

Save yourself a heap of money then spend it on a nice classic Vespa / Lambretta - even if it is just to hang on the wall Very Happy

My red one above had them fitted when I bought it and I was surprised that the ride was pretty good, having previously had a 996 Carrera, 996 Turbo and a 986 Boxster to compare it with. I then had it lowered on H&R springs and fitted spacers and it still rides quite well, similar stiffness to the Turbo. Even lowered, no arch rolling and no catching.

Hi, out of interest, what size tyres are those?

The 991 rim is lovely. Any idea about the weight of the 20" compared to the stock 997 jobs?

I wanted to do this on my Turbo G/2, even found some genuine Panamera wheels that are the 20" version of the Turbo wheels for sale but when I came on here and asked for input I was pilloried for even considering it!

Strange how opinions change in a matter of months Question

You need to walk your own path my friend. Dont know

That being said, I wouldn't be entirely sure I'd want big heavy reinforced SUV rims on my 997. Not that I've seen what you have in mind, or have any idea if they're reinforced, but when we've sourced aftermarket winter rims for the Discovery's they've needed TUV approval to be allowed.

Probably more to do with the fact that they were Cayenne/Panamera wheels and not 997 20" wheels, I am pretty sure there is a difference Dont know

I wouldn't be putting 19" Cayenne wheels on my 996T so don't be offended, lost in translation i'd say Friends

20's are Cool on a 997!

Think your getting your Panameras and Cayennes mixed up, they were Panamera rims which are identical to Gen 2 Turbo wheels but 20".
