Giddyup indeed. Put me down.

And sorry for the seemingly inane question above. It was written before the preceding two posts appeared.

9 x 17 and 11 x 17 for me jeff. my only concern is that the wheels do not protrude beyond the fender lip and that they do not rub.

if that can be done...i am on board. please keep us apprised of your production dates.

best,

pcb

thanks fellas.

I will keep everyone posted. You turbo guys, are you looking to run 315's on the rear or something smaller?

Ben, yours will be easy, I think we can just add an outer shell that will be 2 inches wider than the standard carrera 9.0 if you have 2 inch spacers.....

Cheers

Definitely keep me updated Jeff! I have been looking at the Lindsay's, but since I already owe you huge, and you have my trust, I will wait it out till you have a product on the market.

as for tire size, I am down for the biggest I can fit in my fenders without rubbing or modification(i am sure thats what a lot of other 930 guys are looking for). Also a size that is made by a lot of tire vendors would also be a huge bonus.

I'm not quite sure I really need a tire that large on my street car...I dunno, hadn't really thought about it, but I guess if I want an 11" width, this is corresponding tire?

One thing I DO want is a lot of dish on the rears...as much as possible without creating any offset, spacing, and/or rubbing nightmares.

With 17" rims the tire sizes are restricted. 315/35-17 is most popular on 11" wheels.

"Need" depends on a lot of things. Just the looks alone are need enough! Smokin' the 315s in 2nd gear just puts icing on it.

My preference is 9 & 11.5 x18 with either 315/30 or 335/30 on the rear. Max out that space! Up until the tires became NLA I was running 345/35-15s and 12x15s on the rear. Required fender rolling and such but worked just fine on the street and track. You can get a lot of tire in there.

I would be interested in 17's. probably 9's up front, and 11-11.5 in the rear.

Jeff what kind of time frame are you predicting on when they'll be out?

And will you have any sort of "introductory sale" or "group buy"

Sounds promising!

If you consider a cut-rate unfinished track version, I'd be in for a set of 9's and 11'sx 17.

My tire and wheel preferences are Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3:
245/40ZR17 on 9x17 and 285/40ZR17 on 11x17

I could go with their 315/35ZR17 but CIS turbos like mine don't need that much tire for the street to keep the power down. So it's just that much more weight, rolling resistance and 2 more inches to pick up crap on the street (LOL - better get the run flat variety then huh? ;-).

As for offsets ... are we unanimous that deep dish is the Holy Grail for these?!?

That's sort of what I was thinking for tire dims. For some reason 315 just sounds huge. And yes...DEEP DISH, PLEASE!

I can't wait for track rims and will be ordering 9/11 x 17 CCWs. But, I would love a set in 9/11 (or 11 1/2) x 17 for the street.

They would be for a 1984 Factory Turbo Look which I am told is the same specs as a 1986-7 930.

Yes to deep dish and to dumping the OEM 28 mm rear spacers.

Question - What will the rim's outer lip look like? Like Fuchs or more like modern shell wheels, e.g., what Lindsey uses? If possible, I for one, would prefer the Fuchs look, but it's not a deal-killer.

Thanks for taking this on - too bad the factory has decided we're not a viable market.

Just a quick question, and I'm only getting the "standard" Carrera wheels from Jeff when he proceeds, but on the 11" rear wide body wheels, is there any structural/strength problem by moving the wheel center more toward the car in order to get the dish, and do away with the spacers?
