17x8 ET 10.6 17x9 ET15 Euro 930

I'm thinking of installing these on my 85 Euro 930. I like the look of the Fuch wheel but 16" looks to small for me. I found Euromeister makes them in 17" I know its not the best idea to install replica wheels but I truly don't drive it that much to be concerned.

Now to my question can I run the 17X8 offset 10.6 fronts? and 17X9 offset 15 on the rears without any issues? If so what would be the best tire size with this setup? Thanks

The big question is, are they available? The 17s were listed for several months, but none have been delivered. Offsets listed are the same for 16" Fuchs in the same width. On my 8s&9s, I'm running 235 and 275.

I'm not sure I was going to give them a call today. They didn't list 16X8 on their page only 16X7 with an offset of 23.3

There is a post on the 911 forum. It seems that they are delayed. I never talked to them, but I have read that they are not available until May 25th. Oh, there are also 200 people in line. No one seem to optimistic that they will be delivered.

I called and spoke with Automotion but they don't have any in-stock until 6-30 I asked how many people are in line and he said I don't have that info but only 25 sets are coming in. He told me to place an order and it could take up to 3-4 months. I said no thanks.

Any other company selling these? He also couldn't tell me if 17X8 will fit the car.
