930 spare tire

What is the difference between 911 spare tire and wheel and 930, 1976-1989.
Thank you

My 86 OEM and never used space saver spare tire looks just like a 911 space saver spare tire.

Just a word of caution!

If you have bought aftermarket rims, and no longer use the factory rear aluminum wheel spacer, the spare tire will NOT fit on the rear. This is because most folks shorten the studs when removing the spacers, and that leaves too much stud shoulder for the lug nuts to tighten down when you try to install the thin sheet metal spare tire.

Also keep in mind that if your car has a LSD, the spare is wayyyy smaller than just about any of our current rear wheel/tire combo's, so running a tiny rear spare for any length of drive, is REALLY hard on the limited slip clutch pack!

If you are running the fore mentioned after market wheels with no spacers, then there is no sense in keeping that boat anchor up in the frunk, so save some weight and just store it somewhere along with the tool kit & jack.

Mark

No, 930 calipers will clear 15" wheels at the front, where its tightest.

You do apparently need to make different arrangements if you go bigger brakes - 951/965 spare wheels have more clearance. Apparently Boxster/996 spares are the same.

And apparently in some of the factory handbooks it explicitly says that you should only ever fit the spacesaver spare to the front.

Which in my case led to "d'oh, now I need a different spare"...

If you have a flat on the rear you pull the front to the rear and use the space saver on the front
