The Macan's ABS, TCS etc. are all biased towards parameters that assume the rear has more traction than the front. When you mount a square setup, you violate the initial assumptions all the nanny controls are set up for. It may not ever matter or it my matter when you need it most. For the Nth time on this forum, I have to ask, "why buy a Macan and then cheap out on the most critical piece of equipment?". If you want to mount Q5 rims and tires, why not just buy a Q5?

4 proper Macan size 18" Made in Germany Rial P10 wheels at the Tire Rack are $500.

I plan on winter wheels and tires, but it is way too early to be thinking about that yet. Most importantly, I want to see my car again! I ordered 19" summer tires on the basis of running a winter set as well, and will probably go 18" for best traction and cost. For some reason 19" wheels are stupid expensive, and for now at least, there is more tire selection in 18", particularly with the N0 marking. When I looked last year, before buying the Macan, I thought Pfaff were reasonably competitive with TheTireRack, once exchange was factored in. I have bought from TheTireRack before, and was quite happy with the results.

I do like the looks of the BBS though.

The Porsche 18" winter wheel/tyre combo is noted on the Porsche website as not suitable for the Turbo, and I assume this is because of the brakes. No mention if they are a problem with the GTS. Anyone know if you can put 18" Porsche wheels on a GTS? Thanks.

Waited patiently (?) for GTS ordered May 15, September 6 birthday, picked up October 21.

18" Porsche wheels won't for a GTS because of the brakes. Tire Rack has a style or two (one is BBS, maybe others) in 18" that they've tested and clear the brakes. I kind of wanted 18" with Nokian tires but now I really want the 19" Sport Classics.

^^^+1. I will also add that a square set-up will induce oversteer and that would be a mistake in the winter on a slippery road.

991 Turbo S - sapphire blue, espresso
