RE: Wheel Interchange Question

Hello. I am in the process of taking the cookie cutters off my car, having the tires removed and refinishing the wheels. I don't really want to leave the car on jackstands for any length of time, (can't move it around very easy, and it will be in the way) I was wondering, is there rims off another vehicle that will bolt right on to my 1987 924 S (read cheap!)? I was thinking of just picking up some cheap rims out of the local pick and pull so I can roll it around. Any ideas? What exactly is the bolt pattern and offset of the stock cooki cutters? Thanks for any ideas.

Bill

924S models never had cookie cutters as stock, they were only produced in the early 70s and the offset is wrong. Any 924S or 944 will work to roll it around or try and get just some inflatable spare wheels form the wrecking yard.

Sorry I should have elaborated a bit more. The cookie cutters were off of a 1987 944. I traded a set of phone dial wheels for them. I was looking more for another car manufacturer wheels that might interechange like Honda, Toyota etc. Something cheap I could pick up and use.. Thanks for the reply.

Sorry. Porsche pretty much decided to use their own wheel stud spacing.

Also cookie cutters were made from the 70s to the early eighties..I forgot to write that in. Also 87 944 never had cookie cutters, they prety much finished on the early dash 944 models.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond. I just assumed they were 87's since that is the year the cookie cutters came off of, I know what happend when you assume Well I guess jackstands it is then! Thanks again for the info.
