Mr. Houghton....I'm surprised at your comment, you have been around long enough to have heard and read all the accolades about tires and rims.

Yes, moving to 17" rims or larger does change the aesthetics of the car for the better/bad/indifferent, that's a individuals personal opinion.

However, a 930 shod with quality modern tires, there is NO personal opinion when it comes to handling, grip, braking performance. The difference is simply outstanding, phenomenal.
Once you take the plunge, you will start kicking yourself for not having done it years upon years ago.

Like I've said before...hang the Fuchs on the wall, and step up the game!

17" fronts give you great choices in tires, 17" rears give you slightly less choices, 18" rears opens the doors to many choices. This is the main reason I went with staggered front , rear rim diameters {plus it gives the car that kinda 935 stagger look}.
