I beleive they're P40's. Somewhat similar, but a wheel connoisseur would say they are pretty different.

I believe 275's are the widest you should go. 285's are pushing the limits and could be dangerous with the sidewall hanging on for dear life. Nice Cars!!

9.5" width wheel should accommodate a 285-series (provided they dont rub).

on stock wheels, we usually go about 275 or even 285 if the customer wants it.
for aftermarket wheels, we have gone as wide as 315.

key is to match up the wheels and tires correctly and not to divert too much from the original diameter.

The wheels on at least one of the Porsches are Champion Wheels. Produced in the same factory as our RACs. Our RACs actually came through Champion.
