Quick Wheel Question

Edited:

Trying to figure out if a set of 17x9 and 17x11 Fikses with Offsets of ET18 would fit my '88 930 with stock spacers. Haven't had any luck with the search.

Fairly urgent request so any input would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks

9" ET18 = ~145mm (5.7")backspacing
11"ET18 = ~170mm (6.7")backspacing
Bases on bead to bead measurements of 10"/12" respectfully.

Brian -

Your techno jargen went over my head. Was there an opinion in there as to the appropriateness of their fitment?

Thanks

I posted the backspacing so that you can compare it to your existing wheels and decide if they fit your car.
Every car is a little different and I don't know exactly what spacers you are using, I assume 1" rear.
I believe that the ET18 on the 9/11 combo is a popular size and should fit your car. Check your current backspacing and fitment to be sure.

Gotcha thanks.

I actually just got off the phone with wheel enhancements and based on the back spacing it looks like the rears would actually extend beyond the body work. So its a no go. Looks like I'll be mounting stock size tires on stock wheels as my rain tires for the weekend. Should be interesting... probably should turn down the boost!

Thanks Brian.

If you are looking for just a track wheel, just pull the rear spacer off and run an open lug. In the future, if they need to come out a little, just get a smaller spacer that will get them to your desired width.
