Wow, I haven't seen that size in 10 years. Coker may have something but it's a long shot.

I'm very desapointed.....I saw a lot of Porsche with those tires and I can't find a pair for my wheels...????......or may be, I have to find 2 BBS 17" rims for the rear....the same model as mine....

goodyear, hoosier, and a few other tire companies are making vintage race tires to fit these size wheels. it would be pretty wicked to have your 930 rolling on a set of new blue streaks!

I have the same ones coming in for my 930. Centers are black. 16" front, 17" rear so tires shouldn't be hard to find.

No, those Racing BBS wheels can be upgraded to 17s with a change of the inner and outer halves. However, I'm not sure if the fan covers will fit.

I don't have the wheels yet. They are actually off a friend's race car and I'm just waiting for him to ship them in from Los Angeles. My car is just a stock 930 with chromed Fuchs, which I'm borrowing from another friend.

I definitly think that the right and best solution is to get 17" parts to upgrade my rear rims....so...I need 2 x 3.5" x 17" and 2 x 8" x 17" rings (?) to do it...I hope they can be fit on the BBS cnters I've got.....

Thanks for helping...making me offers....

I think the newer BBS rim halfs have a reduced bolt count...so the holes may not mate up.
I hope it works out for you. I love that look!

He's got the 20 bolt BBS wheels so it shouldn't be a problem. http://www.bbs-racing-wheels.com/Seiten/frameE.htm
