I used overlength studs and hubcentric spacers like the factory did, when i was running wheels that needed the ET adjusting. Oh, and steel lug nuts. YMMV.
That's my fear, tight/hard turn and "BAM" - - Wasn't too sure what the reputation of those was... I'm not going to spend much time on the track, but do enjoy taking tight/fast turns...

The HR DRM series (billet, hubcentric) spacers are meant for racing and carry TUV certification. Individual tracks/car clubs may differ. FWIW

I ran HR spacers too. I think the front needed a 25mm and a 13mm. But HR make both designs; the overlength studs just passed right through them. That design just seemed "better".

Heh. Yeh, that's the great thing about standards - there's soooo many to choose from.

Fantastic, timeless design.
And your front lower airdam fits correctly, too!
Great car.

Indeed, they are 9s on the front of mine. Decided to check as I'm searching for new rubber - if you hadn't mentioned this I'd still be happily ignorant thinking they were 8s

My 2c:

Ruf intended 8+10x17s to make for a good balance with a 930. When they started selling these wheels the USA buyers wanted 9s up front. Since they had 9s for SC/Carrera rears, sure thing. If you like the "look" a 9" front is nice on the eyes [but really need 11 or 12s on the rear!]. The 8" is intended to be used with the factory 930 spacer up front which moves the wheel out where it should be.

An 8" front drives better. A 9" front looks better.

Choices!

BTW, this car would look better with the front dropped about 1". I question if the increased harshness, kick back, and bottoming is worth it. Raising the spindles helps. At 24" it works better at speed and looks better, but the rest borders on misery.

If my car [especially the front] were any lower, it would be resting on the ground... One of the pictures has the rear tire on a bit of a slope, so it appears to be lower in relation to the fender than the front. I should have found a more level patch of ground. BTW: I can hardly put my foot under the front of the car... I got the 9's now, so I guess a follow up pic is in order. I'll work on that this weekend and post...
