Show Me Your 911 with 8s and 245x45x16

I'm planning on moving my 225x50x16s from the rear to front (7s)and buying some 245X45X16s for the rears (8s). Show me yours so I can see before I buy.

Not a great picture of the tires(I wasn't trying to showcase the tires when I took it), but it does show that 245's can fit decently on 8" rims (i.e. no obscene bulging sidewalls).

Here's some pictures of a 245/45-16 on a 16x8 944 Turbo phone dial wheel. The offset of this wheel is +23.3mm so you can see that the wheel/tire combo has more room to be moved outward. This is why a +10.6mm o/s 16x8 Fuchs or the +15mm o/s 16x9 Fuchs wheel is a better choice.







This is a comparison between a 225/50 Kumho Ecsta MX on a 16x7 Fuchs (left) and a 245/45 Yokohama AVS ES100 on a 16x8 944 Turbo phone dial

I think the looks depends a lot on tire brand and type.

Ooo, a classic!

Looks like you have a 74 driver's side mirro, and a 73 passenger side?

Couldn't resist...
