I run 235/45-17 and 255/40-17 on 9" and 10" just fine. Earlier I had 225's in the front (that's what RUF did), bit better handling, but changed for better brake performance and easier to get after a while.

215 for a 930 in the front is too small in my eyes, lots of understeering and poor brake performance are the results

930 Turbo '81 Too many modifications to list
