    My rims have the 930 offset from RH-Wheels. I didn't need to do anything other than bolt them up once I mounted the rubber. Thanks for the concern on the CIS. These things can be tedious.

    Thanks Bryan this is great info! Do your rims have the same offsets as mine too?

    I hope you get your CIS issues sorted.

    I made a mistake.

    Rears are 285/30
    Fronts are 245/35

    I mixed up the profile height on the below messgae.

    My rear wheels are 10 inches wide like yours. My fronts are 8.5 instead of 8. We can run the same tire on the front as I have a buddy with 8's. I investigated what tire size would work the best for our wheels and this is what I did.

    Rear: 285/35
    front: 245/30

    These were the best overall fit with no stretch or eccess on the wheel. Looks great.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Bryan,

    I just picked up a set of used RH's for my 88 930 - also black!
    The rims are labeled as 10J-54 and 8J-52 If these are the same as yours I am interested to know what tire size you are running. The tires on the rims right now are the OEM size at 265/35R18 and 225/40R18. The rubber however looks too stretched for the rim width and the rim edge is proud of the tire by quite a bit. I would like to have the rubber go past the edge of the rim and am therefore trying to understand how big a tire will fit and not have issues on the car. I will be setting up the spacers to get the tire as flush to the outside of the car as possible.

    I love them. Joe at RH is a good guy, but purchase reconditioned ones. New outer and inner halves and repainted centers off stock porsche 3.6. $600 cheaper and look great. I paid $3,299 and no tax b/c I was out of state. Best $3,300 I ever spent. If your not tracking, dont even worry.

    Hope this helps,
