Dimensioning of 'tasteful' rear spacers for Turbo Carrera

On my 77 Turbo Carrera the rear wheels do sit quite 'deep'. I have searched here and the web but did not find info on what would be a good spacing for moving the wheels out without it being 'too much'. It certainly do not want to risk touching the body under load.

Any thoughts / experiences?

Take a look at the link below - it's a great guide on wheel fitment and spacing/offset. Hope this helps you a bit.

My 77 Turbo Carrera came with spacers. Pretty sure they are factory. Could give you the part numbers for spacers(will advise thickness) and stock rear Fuchs if you would like? Note: Rear spacers were removed to fit 10” wide BBS E50s.

Thanks! this is super helpful.

DSM, I take it in your last post you show the setup factory spacers (28mm) and rims (16 x 8) but 245/50 R16 instead of the factory 225/50 R16. Looks like the tire aligns perfectly with the flares in this setup and easy to do....!

With the original 9x16 rear Fuchs the 245-45R16 tires looked too far 'tucked in' so I exchanged the stock 28mm spacers for 43mm adapters. No need to change the studs. The look is just right, and no tire contact.

its only too much if they rub.

one thing to look at is are both sides the same. IE do the wheels sit in too much the same amount on both sides. mine did not. I needed an additional 1 inch on one side and about 1.5-2inches on the other to make the wheels look the same in the fenders.
