If you went with the Toyo R888's you will really like them. They offer a ton of traction on the street. I like them. Only thing I've noticed - they love to pick up road debris like small pebbles and fling them up under the car. Other than that - I love them.


P.S. - I mounted my Fikse's with the 315/30/18 and 245/35/18 Michelin Pilot PS2.

Test fitting starts soon

Tire rack sent the tires literally overnight for only like $17 per. Unreal/Amazonish.

Went to Conway Autoworks a mere 14 miles from home (score) and dropped off the wheels and tires for mounting. Kenny’s shop is _literally_ amazing.

Next I will take the car back to get a thrice over, bring fluids up to date and test fit the wheels. If they fit without metal bending, I’ll order the other side and commence spring commissioning (although we are supposed to get 5-8” of snow tomorrow…).

Thanks, Ed

My question is will the 265 fit out front on my Euro spec lowered M491 Turbo look Turbo?
Yes, it will, but 265/35 is a better fit on a 9.5". That 255 should be perfect for your 9s.

Stock bodywork 1989 930 with Kinesis K28s:
265/35-18 on 9.5x18" + 315/30-18 on 12x18"








Ronnie would have loved the wide 19 deep-dish wheels another 930 customer ordered...

Ha! Yes to "deep dish", but a big ole, barf-gag, HELL NOOOOO, to 19"! I don't even need to see pics to know how ghetto-customs ridiculous that must have looked!

All joking aside, Chris, do you like how the Turbo in the pictures you posted looks with those pimpolicous, Kinesis 18 inchers? I ask, because to me, that is a really good representation of just how silly and out of proportion 18" wheels are to the stock 930 body. And regardless of the extreme bling factor, don't you think that those wheels give the car a "monster truck" look? I'm not talking about just a hint of monster truck, but more like I would expect to see that car rolling over crushed school buses any minute now!

Humm....I run 255-17's on 8.5's on the front & 295-18's on 11's on the rear, and my sled is rather low to boot.

Nobody has ever mentioned any dislike when viewing pictures of the car, maybe everybody is just being polite {which does not seem normal for this group}.

Yes, I do. While I prefer them in another finish other than polished, I think that car looks good with those wheels.
Doesn't hurt that it's got big red brakes, custom-valved Bilstein coil-overs and a 750+hp twin turbo engine, either. Kind of the whole package.

When I look at the car as a whole, sometimes it looks right, other times not.
Some 930s look better on 17s, other on 16s.
And sometimes the 16s and 15s look disproportionately small and like they have balloon tires that belong on a mid-80s family sedan.

Most importantly, the owner of the car loves the wheels. It's his car, and if they make him happy, our opinion doesn't matter a bit.

Yes, I agree 100% that every owner should do as he or she sees fit with these cars (well, except for the ones that buy and park them - those people should be battered about the head and shoulders until they sell to someone that will drive it!).

I guess that my hang-up with 18+ inchers on a stock bodied 930 is that they look so bad to me I find it hard to image that anyone would actually choose to use them. But you are right, and ultimately it is NONE of my business (can't seem to resist the stick poking business, however)!

Speaking of stick poking; Mark, your car sits way too low and the wheels look all wrong!

Please visit the website I mentioned above to connect with some of your long lost brethren!

Mark, if your cousins come around these here parts, they'd better be wearing parachutes and/or padded motocross underwear, as the result will be -

Ronnie, you are so right. My 500Hp convertible should put power to the ground with 245/45/16. That would be fun. Or, I could do this:

^^^^ Well, seeing as it is a convertible, you are already fuc@ed with regard to the looks department, so even a change to wagon wheels would have little to no effect there!

Nice power, though, and dayumm those must be some sticky tires as yer car is hanging upside down in the last picture!

First of all, Ronnie, I spit coffee out of my mouth when you mentioned the triple 8’s ability to suspend an inverted car… and I wasn’t even drinking coffee.

I’m too new here to pick up on the subtleties of the forum quorum but I will say this is about as bad ass of a car that I’ve ever owned and I’m psyched for the journey. I’m like a kid when it comes to realizing a dream.

Fitment pics next for those interested…. Hopefully, no metal is involved. PK

Hey "Tug-job" (), I'm sure that Snoop Dogg would approve of yer wheel choice, but don't plan on writing for him any time soon!!!!
