930 rim size

were they 16" rim size correct?
The car I was looking at had 17's but not fuch rims
If someone has original Fuch rims I would be interested,
I'm in Toronto, something local would be better but open to options.
Thanks

I just got a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE11 a couple of weeks ago.
They are the correct sizes, 205/55R16 & 245/45R16 on stock 16x7 & 16x9 rims.

I had a hard time finding any tires when using online stores, what I found was no availability when searching by vehicle model ('87 930). It would appear that the speed rating limits the search results. I have no problem using tires that are only "V" rated, since it is very unlikely I will ever go 149mph.

I called a local tire distributor and the had no problem getting me the tires within a week, even though their online system showed no availability.

That's good to know. I hope someone continues to support that size for a while. I don't need tires yet but almost feel I should grab some while I still can.
