Unhappy So, what kind of wheel option limitations do 930 owners have?

I was down at the Porsche dealership getting some parts and was checking out some of the new style wheels on the 997. MAN !! those are some cool wheels! The Boxster S also had some wicked looking 17" rims.

I was thinking; if rubber for the 16 Fuchs ends up being hard to find, I may run some different wheels and tires and just store the Fuchs for whenever I start feeling nostalgic.

I wonder if the bolt pattern is the same on the newer rims, and all that would be needed are spacers and perhaps longer studs?

They look right on the newer cars... but something isn't quite right about them on a older machine.

You have a very nice 930 though.

It is really unfortunate that the wheel/tire market has gotten so goofy with the sizes. It's hard to see where it will all end. Folks with older cars are just screwed.

The new wheels do look nice but many are now 19" diameter. 18" is likely the breaking point on our older cars but can look OK with the right wheels/tires/ride height. 19s generally look cartoonish on an older car nomatter what you do. At that point you cannot get a tire with a low enough side wall hieght to keep the total diameter of the wheel/tire within reason. It has to adversely affect handling at some point.

You would use spacers of the hub adapter variety. These keep the wheels perfectly centered & no need to mess with your studs.

Oh, the 997tt wheels look nice!

Yep I just did a before and after edit and have to say the Fuchs look like they belong. The only reason I am considering different options is because the 16" rubber may be hard to find in the future.

Maxx1. Send those Fuchs in to Lindsey and they can make them into 17 at least if not 18's. And as awesome as your car looks it really needs to be lowered front and back. IMHO.

Unfortunately Lindsey needs 16x6J's - 16x7 and 16x9 don't work.

Les !! is that you? I have one of your guitars !!

Nah, I don't want to hack up the original wheels. I think I will just live with them and hope I can get rubber for them years down the road.

Maybe I will do what I said and buy some aftermarkets that look good on the car and reserve the Fuchs for when I want to show the car or whatever.

Yeah, I know it needs lowered.... I will probably do it when it's ready for an alignment.
