OK

Have to start over. The guy I bought these from told me they were 18's. Went to put the tires on today and the wheels are 17's. No big deal to me but now need new tire size recommendations please guys.

Everything depends on the backwardation, with my RUF I put that (10 " 265/40/17) and (9 " 245/40/17).
Backwardation front: 17.7mm
Backwardation rear: 5mm more a spacer of 15mm.

I hope that that will help you.

Here is a picture with 9x16 (245/45-16) front and 12.75x17 (315/35-17) rear.





This one is 9x17 (255/40-17) and 12x17 (315/35-17)



Not a lot of options in 17", backspacing and ride height have to be factored in every combo.

I just wanted to say thanks to all that helped me out with these wheels. 315's in the rear look insane!

The car will get lowered a little more when the suspension settles.

The best deal in town: Sumitomo HTR-Z. Get the 245/45-17 and 315/35-17.

That's 167 MPH. I know we all want a tire that's rated for the highest possible speed, but 167 is faster than these cars are geared for, and way above what any of us are going to do on the street...

^ Terrible? They're not Michelin Super Sports, but they come in the right size and are ~$100 and ~$150 for the fronts and rears, respectively.

The only other street tire in 315/35-17 offered by Tire Rack are the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 at...$363.48. And they're a 280 treadwear tire (i.e., hard as a rock) in the old "V" pattern.

I'll take the Sumitomos and tear them up (treadwear 160).

I bought my 930 with Kumho's Ecsta's on it, they were ok-ish.

The second set of tires I put on the 930 were Sumi's ....sure the tread wear rating indicates they should be sticky, but in fact they just suck and wear out quickly, and are noisy.

The 944 turbo I just bought has Sumi's HTRZ III's on it....and.... well they suck too. So, so in the dry for marginal traction/cornering, worthless traction in the rain.

I ended up with BFG's comp 2's for the 930, really like them, great traction/cornering, quite, acceptable thread life. Will do the same when I buy tires for the 944 turbo.

I had brand new Sumi's on my car just last week with the factory wheels. When I put the Fikse's on I went with Nitto's. Car rides SOOOOOO much better now. Sumi's are cheap but they give a horrible ride.

The nittos are not that much more than the summis but are a much better tire

It literally drives like a different car. I always put cheaper tires as I thought they didn't make much of a difference. Never again!
