How Wide Are Porsche Tires?


Stabil aftermarket Porsche rims are available in a wide array of staggered fitments from 18 to 22 inches in diameter.

This variety ensures that there is a rim size and offset available to fit nearly any Porsche.

Most Porsche owners are very particular about the appearance of their car and want it to look its best.

One way to improve the appearance of a Porsche is to install a set of high-quality aftermarket rims.

There are many different brands and styles of aftermarket rims available so finding the right set can be a daunting task.

One option that many Porsche owners consider is installing a set of staggered aftermarket rims.

Staggered fitments involve using different-sized rims on the front and rear axles of the car.

This setup gives the car a more aggressive look and can also improve its handling characteristics.

How Wide Are Porsche Wheels?

Most Porsche wheels are 9.5 inches wide in the front and 11.5 inches wide in the rear. However there are a few exceptions.

For example the Porsche Panamera Turbo comes with 10-inch-wide front wheels and 12.5-inch-wide rear wheels.

And the Porsche Cayenne S has 11-inch-wide front wheels and 12.5-inch-wide rear wheels.

Why Are Porsche Tires So Wide?

Porsche tires are wide to provide stability and handling at high speeds.

The wider the contact patch between the tire and the ground the more stability and grip the car has.

The trade-off is that a wider tire will have less rolling resistance (it takes more power to push a wide tire than a narrow one) and will be less efficient on fuel.

But for a car like a Porsche that’s designed for high speeds the benefits of having wider tires outweigh the drawbacks.

Which Cars Have The Widest Tires?

A few high-performance sports cars have tires that are wider than those on a typical family sedan.

For example the Pirelli Trofeo R has tires that are 335/25ZR20 which is about 13.2″ wide.

Some Ford Shelby GT350s have staggered tires with the front being 305/30ZR19 and the rear is 315/35ZR19 which is about 12.6″ and 13.4″ wide respectively.

And of course there are many aftermarket tire companies that make even wider tires for sports cars and supercars.

What Production Car Has The Widest Tires?

The widest production car tires are on the Lamborghini Aventador.

They are Pirelli P Zero Corsas measuring 335/30ZR20 in the rear and 245/35ZR20 in the front.

Some aftermarket companies offer even wider tires for luxury supercars.

For example Hennessey Performance offers a set of 405/25ZR24 tires for owners of the Bugatti Veyron.
