Will lobster claw wheels fit the 986?

I think they’re 19’s. Does anyone know if those will fit under the 986? Also, is eBay the best place to buy Porsche wheels?

Sometimes yes, often no.

Those are for wide body 911s and won't work well on a 986. You want to find a set that has rears of 19x9.5 - those will be from the 987 and will fit on a 986.

I saw it on a 986 at a Mom and pop dealership. It looked weird but also kinda cool. I didn’t test drive it though.
