Jeff,

Please add me to the list of interested folks. I'll be going for the same specs as Ben - 9&11x17 set up for a '77 911 S converted widebody.

Thanks!

+5 on the deep dish. I love the wide wheel look from the rear, and the side!

Comming, really they are. This is process is taking longer than I thought, but I will keep folks up to date as info comes in. I will post a pic as soon as I can.

I should know more tomorrow about when I can get the prototype off to STL for load testing.

Cheers

Please publish your test results, as durability is going to be a concern for a 300-400hp 930 -

I publish the results for sure.

Brian, the first production run will be priced at or below the price of the Lindseys. After that I need to talk with those that will be marketing the wheels and come up with a figure. That said, I think the what the market will pay is pretty well established. Look for them to remain priced comparable to a Lindsey.



Cheers

Okay,

Just finishing up the prototyping on both the 17 and 18. For an 11.0 inch rear what backspace are you guys with turbo chassis looking for?


Cheers

I'm guessing you didn't need to bother to ask about Carrera/SC bodies, 'cuz you've already got that worked out. And those protos will be done first.



Errrr, ahhhhh, ummm, right????

I know this is an overly simplified answer, but I just want to be able to bolt them on...don't want to dick around with spacers or longer studs or rolling fenders or removing anything. In other words, whatever offset fits an '87 soon to be at Euro ride height.

Exactly.

Installing 315s to fit (BFG TA KD) are a plus also. 275s up front would be nice, but 255s ok too -

I built turbo wheels that take a 315, they were 11.5's. I was hoping those who already run this size wheels could provide the backspace numbers so I can cross check.

Cheers

I would like 8.5 or 9 fronts and 10.5-11.0 inch rears in 17 inch size.
Eliminating the factory spacers is a plus but no big deal.
As far as actual backspace required, Jeff can't you just figure out what would be required to get the outer rim more or less flush with the fender lips. This would give the best look and widen the track of the car. This is best done on an actual car using a known quantity rim to measure from and determine the required offsets from there. Unless someone can give you hard numbers, you might have to provide some examplesettings or do it yourself.
I don't know how bad this would effect front end geometry but the rear should not matter.

Yes I can do that, and have. I have built many wheels to fit 930's. However, it seems everyone of my customers wanted a slightly different spec. So I was trying to see if there was a general agreement about what spec would be best.

I will build them to eliminate the spacer as the wheel then will have a deeper "dish" to is which I think is what most are after.

Cheers

Yes, I guess I'd be willing to sacrifice the factory spacers to gain an even deeper dish...

not too deep.. If they get too deep dished they start to look kind of stupid...a good 6" is what looks best IMHO..
