wheels n tires 930

Given the 16" tire shortage, looking at 17-18" options.
Does anybody know the stock offsets?
What sizes would fit a 505 car?
Interested in pure bolt on, no additinal spacers/bolt cutting etc
Thinking about some OEM rims

This thread might help. I had bookmarked this one for future reference.
I really like the rims D-Zug just had Forgeline produce. If I move off the 16" Fuchs, I may go that route.

Question about wheel offset and compatibility - tire and wheel experts please advise.

Many options and many threads on here. A simple search will give pics too.

I pointed these out on another thread. Bridgestone has a RE11 that looks promising for those of us with 16 inch rims and want to stay with them.

I think the re11s are only in early 930 sizes, not later like mine.
I tried a search, can't get the spacer/et answers i'm looking for, hence the thread.

I just put the re11s on mine, they are 205/225. The rear 225s are actually wider than the old Perelli that was on there.

Tire Rack has RE-11's in stock.
205/55-16 and 245/45-16.
Their web site showed the rears as back-ordered, but when I called, they shipped all 4 the next day.

Who are you guys talking to at tire rack. I ordered a set May 28 and they are still listed as back order. I called customer service yesterday and they told me there were none available at any of there warehouses. Somebody's got a secret stash somewhere. It's a bit of a drag as my T1R's are just about corded on the inside edge of the rear. Grrrr!

Tt: Does this link answer your original question? Stock offsets on an '87 turbo (with 7s and 9s) should be 23 mm and 15 mm, respectively. Remember there's also a 28 mm spacer on the rear.

I emailed damon at tire rack, they have the re11s in stock.
The re11 is a great tire both street and track. Much superior to the n3000.

Got my 245/45-16s RE11s yesterday from Tire Rack...took 4 days from order to delivery!
Mine were made in the 14th week of 2012, so they are FRESH.
