Zero problems with rub. Running Nittos.
What offset did you run on the rear? +0 or the -5

I was looking at the Fifteen52 wheels for a second street set with better tire options than my 16" wheels. I dig the Gold and Black wheel. You would think they would offer the offsets in this thread with Magnus Walker backing them. But they only have 17X11 in a +17 or -8.

Will any other newer porsche wheels fit a 930 with adapters?

Boxsters? Cayenne? 996? 997? These wheels are plentiful, and cheap. Would make great track wheels...

Curious why no one ever does that? Is it simply not possible?


Do any other OEM wheels fit a 930?

The 17x11 -8 would work fine on a widebody 930.

So the tires I'm looking at (Nitto 555 G2) have 315/35/17 for rear and 245/45/17 or 255/50/17. I'm not sure which would be the better choice up front.

Kuhmo's Ecsta XS has the 315 as well along with more options up front: 235/45, 245/35/40/45, and 255/40.

Rears seem to be pretty simple. The choices up front are many and I could use a hand with selection.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

My 245/45/17 rub slightly on the plastic tank inside the drivers side wheel well when the suspension is compressed. Philip

I would give consideration to the Nitto NT05 in a 315/35/17 and 255/40/17. I run a 255 series tire on all my setups. I run the NT05 on my 17 Classics and they are great tires. The Ecsta XS offers the same size combo but I've never run them so I cannot comment on the specific tire. The size combo works really well on a 9" / 11" - 11.5" combo.

You could run a 245 tire up front on the 9" wheel if you wanted but the 245/40 aspect ratio will lower the OD enough that it looks shorter than the rear setup and might look funky to you.

Personally, I'd focus on 255/40 combo up front.

- Chris.

Black on hyper Classics in 17" with the NT05 255/40 and 315/35 combo:





18" Fikse setup with 245/35 and 315/30 Michelin PS2 combo:








The 245 tire looks a lot smaller compared to the 255 tire. But that's also hard to judge since one set is a 17" and the other is 18"...

I was just showing different looks. The CCW Classics are 17" and the Fikse's are 18".

Only reason I have 245's on the Fikse's is because Michelin discontinued the 255/35/18 in the PS2.

930 (1987) Wheel help needed

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I'm having a hard time with my just ordered new wheels.

I'm running stock ride height, stock spacers on my 1987 930.

Wheels are Euromeister Fuchs replicas:
17x8 et 11 fronts NT05 235 40 17
17x9 et 15 rears NT05 275 40 17

The fronts look like they're about 3/4" sticking out past the front fenders and rub on full lock while the rears are flush but rubbing the fender under normal driving.

Can this be fixed by adjusting rear ride height? Should I be looking at either new wheels or spacers?

Getting very frustrated.

HELP!

17x8 +11 is too low offset for a turbo body car. There's really nothing you can do to fix that. I run a 9" wheel +30 et with a 245 or 255 tire. In that scenario, comparing your wheel to mine, your wheel will sit +6mm outboard from my wheel. My setup runs -2 degrees of camber with rolled lips and I still rub from time to time. Another 6mm of offset there's no way that's working without pulling the fenders and a lot of camber.

Maybe someone else can chime in but I don't see how that low of an offset would work on a front turbo fender car.

Sorry.

Chris.

I would keep the 9's in the back and return your 8's (Front) for the 7's. The 7" front is really a poor offset for a turbo body car. You'd almost want a 12-15mm spacer to move it out properly.

My main problem is actually the rear tires rubbing the fenders. I've managed to scrape paint off the drivers side fender as well as create a nice score line on the tire

AHHHHHH....

Are you running the factory spacer still? Easy fix would be to run a thinner spacer to move the wheel inboard.
