Euromeisters

I have 1x26mm spacer in the front and 2x26mm spacers in the rear as well, and it rubbed like a mofo. Took me a while to sell them off at a loss so I'm weary to go this route again, but I will revisit this issue again in the spring. I'm kinda freaked out now trying Euromeisters again but love the look and price.

EDIT: my double rear spacer setup (done by the previous owner) also includes extended lugnuts so if I go to single spacer, I'll have to either cut the studs shorter or find open ended lugs for the rear.

So can anyone verify the offset of the Euromeisters? Are they the same as standard Fuchs?

If someone has a set not yet mounted, would you please measure the offset?

That is about an inch in the front and 2 in the rear, I may be hunting more spacers.
i have a couple of sets of spacers i would be willing to sell. My new wheels only require 1" spacers in the rear. Let me know if you are interested, and i will send you some pics.

I run 16x9 ET15 Euromeisters on the front of an '85 930. Fit perfect with no spacers.

Does your car maybe have 930 rear trailing arms?? Is your car a M491 option, or a conversion? All widebody conversions should need 2 sets of spacers on the rear. Maybe you could go with some custom spacers, maybe 1 set of 26mm, and 1 set of 20mm? As you see in my pic, the rears could have come out a little more on mine, no possibility of rubbing at all.

Automotion does a 20% coupon code all the time. That is the perfect time to buy these. I LOVE these wheels on our cars. I would be running these again if it were not for me getting a good deal on the Forgelines i bought.

The offsets on the 17x7 and 17x9 Euromiesters are about the same as my cup wheels so maybe they will fit as is, if not I will let you know.

They have a 15% coupon code now. Are you saying I should wait for 20%?

Euromeisters are here, came with about 2" of snow on the ground. Weather should clear on Monday and I will post my fitting experience.
Anyone in the market for a set of Cup 2's?.

Spoke, you may want to simply look at the CCW Wheels site and stick with the gold center theme while going to 17 inch and no spacers ... lightweight and still looks cool.

Did a prefit today, everything looks good. I have a 24mm and a 3mm spacer on the rear. This should work as is. I have no spacer on the front and this will work also.

Those Lindleys are nice!

I think I'm ready to pull the trigger on a set of 7x17 and 9x17 Euromeisters. Automation has a 20% off coupon now.

Question: What lug nuts should I buy for these wheels? The lugs below say they are NOT for the '86 930.

Great deal at 20% off!
I went back to the site for their lugs and they wanted about 90 plus 16 to ship so I went to ebay and bought these which seem to fit:
20 PCS fit Porsche 911 964 993 928 944 968 Black Alloy Lug Nuts ball seat 14x1.5 | eBay
and these caps which I hope will fit..
SET OF 4 NEW PORSCHE 911 930 944 WHEEL CENTER CAPS BLACK FUCHS 911 361 032 28
Good Luck!
