930 Wheel Tires Options??

I sure this has been beaten like a dead horse already,
but most the searches come up with SC and RS flares and im a 930 noob

The 77 930 came stock with 7&8x16 fuchs 205/225 tire . Which seem crazy thin
all my other 911 have more rubber on the ground.. and the 930 is the widest one. go figure.

I see the upgrade is the 9x16 fuchs rear which still seems still too narrow..plus SC running around with them to ...I know the RSR had 9 and 11x15 which seem way more correct for a 930 in my mind.?.

so what the widest rubber for the 930 can we go. this is a old school 3.0T
so i want to keep vintage look.. maybe old RUF wheels fuchs or period race wheel ?
any suggestions would be great

NEED RUBBER .

My 77 930 project is getting close to being finished. I put the stock 16 inchers in storage and am going to run Fuch 15x9 & 8s with Hoosier R6 is 225x50 and 275x50. It is period correct and fills out the fenders really nice. Some folks will say not to run Hoosiers on the street. I never run my hot rods in the rain and have had zero issues with them on the road.

The OEM 15x9 Fuchs are spendy, got lucky on finding mine but those Braid Fuchs look great, and are fair money.

The car is 77 Royal Blue( AKA Arrow Blue) with black powder coated Fuchs. It a ROW car with no sunroof, no AC,single mirror. My intent is to build it like someone would hot rod it in 77, all easily reversable back to stock.

I went down the 15x11 fuch road on a 930. Does not work unless you go with a custom offset and then you dont have the deep dish look. Here is a pic of my Braid 15x11 in factory offset, stick almost two inches past fender lip on a 930.
The 930 banana needs a different offset than the RSRs used.

There aren't any fat 16" low profile streets available. I agree about it being a bad idea running Hoosiers on the street.
The down side to the 15's tires are really expensive. I'm referring to the Michelin TB15's and the Pirelli 345/15's.
That being said, on our '75 Carrera RS look (turbo fenders) I run 9x15 fronts w/215 Michelin TB's and 11x15 rears w/295 Michelin TB's. I just replaced the 295's w/270's.
Another option would be 17's, I'm not a fan of the 18's. Close to period correct look and the tires are more affordable. I was running 3 pc Fuchs, 9x17 fronts w/255/45/17's and 11x17 rears w/315/35/17's.
Here are a couple of comparison shots, 315/35/17 left, 295/40/15 right. If you want really fat, and a shoe horn fit you could go for 335/35/15's on 12" rears. The last shot is 295/40/15's left, 335/35/15's right.

The first shot of the Carrera is with the 17's, and the second shot is with the 15's.

I assume you mean 7s or 8s for the front? are the rear offsets OK for a 930.


I think 215/225 would be good for 8" fronts

245-265 is acceptable for the 9"s, you can probably squeeze 275s on a 9" if you are trying to max out your rubber width.

Opps! Yeah that's what I ment 17x7 on the fronts and 17x9 on the rears. I understand that these 17 inch replica Fuchs can utilise the same spacers as supplied on a 1980 930. Does anybody have a recommended tyre brand? Ideally I would like to go wide as possible on the rears so I'm hoping to fit 275 across the back.

275s will be fine but a bit pinched on the back. I have 265 16s on my stock fuchs which are only 8" wide. You have tons of tire options in 17.

Do a search on the main 911 forums for the rota wheels. They are very similar to the euromiesters and I know there are a couple 930s with them.

7&9s are 911 sizes, ditch the weeny 7s, put the 9s in front and buy a pair of 11s for the rear.


Old school cool

9" & 12" rims, 345/35 Pirellis out back. Tires are not practical to buy anymore but I'll continue long as possible. 17" rims with 315/35 are second choice, 18's with 315/30 are at the aspect ratio limit in my opinion.
