Stock Fuch Spacers

I normally run 17" Fikses on my 930 but have been using a set of stock Fuchs off another friends 930 with rain tires on them and have found that the wheels sit very far inside the fenders. I am pretty sure there is a pretty hefty spacer already on the rear but am wondering if there is another spacer that is used with the stock setup to push the wheels out to the edges of the fenders.

Thanks

The rears use a 28mm spacer if I remember right.

Not sure of the year change but Porsche used 1" spacers on the front and 2" spacers on the rear.

78-80 had a 21mm? spacer front,
81 and later w/ one piece brake discs had the spacer "built in" to the hub on the front.

Stock Fuchs will not normally fill the outer edge of the fender, they can look a little funny by todays standards.

If they aren't rubbing on the insides I wouldn't mess w/ it as you will only harm your wheel bearings over time w/ a skinny rim spaced out to fill the fenders
