Lightbulb Post pics of aftermarket or non Fuch style Porsche wheels on your 930 !

I am looking at putting wider rubber on my 930 and wondering what options are available? There isn't much of anything at discount tire or places like that.

I saw a 930 with those Porsche turbo twist style wheels and they looked pretty good. I wonder those would require any adapters?

Hey there maxx,
You are going to find that proper aftermarket 930 wheels are not cheap. To get the correct offset and stagger to maximize tire size, you will need to go with 3 pcs. wheels. There are a couple of 2pcs. wheels out there that get close but tend to be only available in 18" or bigger diameter.
As you may or may not have read in other threads about tire sizes. Choices in tires are getting slimmer. Quality high performance tires in 16" are tough to find, wide 17" for the rears are also getting difficult. Anything over a 275 and your choices get small.
This is why I went with 3pcs. wheels with 17" fronts & 18" rears.

My 87-930

These are 18x8.5 and 10 with proper 930 offsets (3-piece) from RH-Wheel.

Have been very happy with look and quality.

Best of luck in your search.

Bryan

Thanks, nice pics.

I'm concerned that the supply for the stock of tires for 16" wheels will dry up, plus 245/45 isn't exactly very wide. I'll was going to search for 17, but now maybe that's not a good idea. Anyway, I'll keep researching.

I wonder if any later model factory Porsche wheels would have the right offset and bolt pattern?

Hey there Maxx1,
Bolt pattern yes! Offset sorta...even the turbo twists both factory and aftermarket will fit, but the offset is not really correct. My 930 had aftermarket turbo twists on it when I bought it. The drivers front would rub on the washer bottle when turned for tight right turns...not ideal!
I failed to tell you my wheel brand 7 widths in my first post. They are Fikse wheels 17 x 8.5 front, 18 x 11 rears running 245/40 & 295/35 respectfully. As you can see I made matters harder by lowering the car a whole bunch. Here is a different shot of it.

Offsets

Offsets from newer cars (newer than 89) will have different offsets and will be harder to look appropriate. Also, my "look-a-likes" from the 94 3.6 Turbo were less expensive.

Fullquack: Great looking car.

Hope this helps.

That looks really good! I like those a lot!

Do you have any pics of when you had the turbo twists on? What brand are the wheels in the pic and the aftermarket twists? My car is black too, so that gives me a great idea!! I wonder if a small spacer would help the rub prob?

Hey there Maxx1,
Here is a shot of it with the.....ughhh...turbo twists. personally I could not be happier that they are soooooo gone. I sold them to a nice guy out of Canada as his track wheels.
After viewing this, burn the picture and never speak of it again.

This car is running 295's on 18x11.0's...




And these two are running 315's on 17x11.5's in the rear.......







This one is running a 275 I think on the rear with a 17x10.5......
