Its an 1988 930.

I do not believe the wheels are not original, as in a prior thread folks suggested that the front offset of et 11 is wrong.

I have been searching this site, and many folks mention that one wheel seems to stick out further than the other, and apparantly thats not unusual. The right front sticks out 1/2 an inch too far, and rubs. left is fine. Tried rolling the fender, still rubs.

I thought about using the elephant racing offset ball joint to bring the passenger front wheel in a 1/4 inch, as that would likely solve the problem. But I am not sure if that would just cause rubbing on the inside of the whel well. (Might also make it tough to get the right camber setting.)

It seems that going from an 8inch to a 7inch wheel would fix this, as that brings the outer rim in an additional inch. Which, I believe, is the stock measurement.

I did check and there aren't any additional spacers/etc. I actually wanted to goto 17 inch wheels anyway, so this works out fine.

Does that make sense? Any help appreciated.
