This should help...The offset is 23.3 known as the "early offset"...Here is a website with Wheel and Tire Size and Offset Information...is about 1/2 way down the page...What style of wheels you looking at...

that page just gave me another offset. The wheel shop is giving me 49mmfront and 52mm rear? What is it? The wheels I am trying to get are called KAHN RSR, they look great and am looking foreward t ogetting them if things work out.

unlike honda or dsm cars, porsche has comparatively few wheels from which to choose. the 23mm offset is right. it sounds like those wheels you mentioned might have fit a "late" offset porsche, circa 1987, but they won't fit your '84. if they can clear the calipers by using spacers, that might be your only shot. and that's if you want to pay for spacers & maybe absorb the headaches they may cause in wheel balance.

and remember, whatever you do, you'll have to paint your wheels black. :-)

Kahn RSR, those are nice wheels, but pricey for my current budget. You will need spacers to use them, which most Porsche vendors will sell. H&R make great spacers for the 944 as well.

When I bought my car I was new to the porsche thing as far as knowledge goes and the dealer told me it had factory Fuchs on the car. Well the other day I noticed that the front has spacers on it and the rear does not. Does this sound like some one put the 911 offset wheels on the car?
