A friend who I trust mount tires for my three piece rims. One time the silicone got rubbed hard by the tire bead when we dismounted or mounted. Had to remove the tire then clean off and apply new silicone the whole way around the rim because I was unable to tell if there was more than one cut in the silicone. After this happened we watch a little closer when changing tires.

On another occasion I put a new set of rims together and when I applied the silicone there were a few small air bubles which came out of the crevas where the two rim halves meet. It appeared that one of the bubbles poped and gave the air a path to migrate out. I found that if you run the tip of the silicone caulking tube pressed tight into the crevas between the rim halves the air gets pushed out in front of the silicone. No problems since.

235/275 and there is no doubt that I could use a wider tire -

Porsche Crest How Bout These Pics???

Craig,

Here's my pics.



BTW, still running factory I/C under duck tail.



I think I filled out the wheel wells...275/315



Props to Bryan Beamont.
That white turbo'd car of yours is a beaut...
One of my favorites.

Good luck Craig,

Paul

Porsche Crest Thanks Craig!

Hi Craig,

So, Do you think Lindsey's are for you?
You can even go wider if you choose.
Believe it or not...there is still a couple more inches on the inside.
But, I don't think it will benefit you on the track.
Although, it is mighty aggressive on the street.
Oh, you did mention for street use right?

Paul

I think Lindsey's look great and have proven to be a great wheel.

I wonder how hard it would be to fit 315s (BFG TA KD) on the back of the 930 with Lindsey wheels?

I suppose it has been done several times -

I'm mounting the BFG 315's on my Lindsey 11's right now. Mike Lindsey said they should fit no problem.

Excellent. So Mike knows the offset required for a 930 with 315s, thanks.
Jim, what was the wait time for your set?

I had to supply the 16's b/c Mike did'nt have time to round up donors- that took probably three or four weeks on my end. He might be flooded with cores right now- I don't know.

When he got all the cores, the build time was about two months. I think he was pretty swamped at the time.

BTW- he gave me specific front spacer/wheel stud extension information for fitting Big Reds in the future. He really knows his stuff.

Porsche Crest You're Look'n @ 315's

Hey Craig,

Guess you missed the note on my 1st post...I'm running 275's in the front and 315's in the rear with factory spacers.

Remember, my IROC/RSR is based off a 79 930. So it works. What do you think about the look?

You could also go 335's in rear but I would cut back on the spacer by an inch. Confirm that with Mike. Hope that helps.

Or if you want the biggest meats in town....you could ask mike if he can build you 12/13"rears and use 345/355's. There's lot's of room. Confirm with Mike.....He'll probably think you're crazy

It will look like a steam roller.

Paul

You're right, I did!
What make & model tires are those? I do like the black....

Porsche Crest I went with the Japanese Dunlop!

Sumitomo is known as the Japanese Dunlop.

Front 275-40-17

Rear 315-35-17

I was considering BFG and other brands...but I did not think they were 3X's better. These tires are extremely reasonable. If I decide to keep the car, I will purchase another set to have on stand by.

I have taken these tires up only to about 140. They did just fine and their lateral stick is a lot better then I expected. A lot of bang for the buck.

Sumitomo may lack the status of more expensive brands...but with the drastic changes I've made with my 930, I obviously don't follow the crowd.

I always ran Dunlop....then Kumho....now Sumi's on the 930. I would have purchased Kumhos...but they did not offer 315's in the model I wanted.

With your color car...I might consider the RSR finish on Lindseys. Black would look cool too....but I think the RSR finish would do your car's color justice.

Paul

Paul, your car looks great after the transformation. Please post pics of your intercooler/ducktail. What mods, if any, did you have to make to the 'tail? Maybe it should be a separate thread, to preserve this one.
Thanks,
