Carrera rim / winter tires approved?

  • Hi,

    I drive the Classic polished / high-gloss black and am super happy with it. Someone has now told me that I can't drive the rim with winter tires because "Porsche" wouldn't allow it(front axle: 992601025H, rear axle: 992601025J)?

    Is this the case and what does it mean? Typical approval talk, or really relevant information with comprehensible arguments for safety / durability? :old:

    I am grateful to the professionals here in advance for any advice and hope to be able to ride the rim in winter.

    Best regards from the Flensburg Fjord

  • The rims have a prescribed tire size for the summer - you must also use this size for the winter tires, then everything fits.

    So do not use the specified size of the winter tires on the summer rims.

    ...but then snow chains are usually no longer permitted because there is no more room for them - just for your information (doesn't usually matter, but is the difference to the official winter wheelsets)...

  • Hi, thank you very much. According to the service center, I am not allowed to drive the rims in winter. Original text from PZ HH:

    Yours sincerely

    As the previous speakers have already said

    You can also use the summer rim as a winter rim if the same tire size is mounted

    The service center will probably not fit them, as they would like to generate a few thousand for new rims for the winter :wink:...so an independent workshop has to do this, which not every Porsche owner wants...

  • I wanted to ask the same question today, as I would like to drive the GTS in winter after all. And at the rear, the size of the original ZV winter wheels is 11J (instead of 11.5J) and therefore 295 instead of 305/30 ZR21 (rear).

  • I had the original winter wheels fitted this week

    It wasn't an easy job with the ZV rims

    The truck torque wrench was too short in terms of lever travel and had to be extended

    My garage fitted the original summer rims with winter tires.

    Although the term summer rims is already nonsense.
