aftermarket wheels

Hey all, i havent posted here in awhile and i know this may not be something all of you would want to do to your car, but i really want a pair of aftermarket wheels and i was wondering how you know the offset of the rims if it is not listed on a website. I have been looking at a pair of ADR rims called m-sports they are available in 17x7, 18x8.5, and 18x9.5. I would like 18's and i know some people on here have them and these rims for a package set with tires are only 1299 so i was wondering will they fit? If any one could let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Dunno if they will fit, but Porsche has advised against using anything bigger than 17 inch wheels on the 944 series cars. Not that it stopped some people from upgrading to 18 inchres anyway....

Personally 16 is as high as I'm ever going to go for the street, just too easy to ruin 17/18 on potholes, etc. My current 15s are already a rough ride when I hit a small pothole. I have 16s with no rubber on them yet.

If it's for track then get some more feedback on here, do a search on past posts, and go for it. Don't go wider than 8inch width in front, they'll stick out too far past fender.

You may have to roll your fenders out.. 16x7"s and 16x8's lookk fine- I have seen 18's on a 944- but it took monster swaybars to keep from rubbing..
all depends on how much money you wanna spend..
