Question Late and eary offset?

I have to admit that understanding wheel offset and where it is measured from is not my strong point. However, my current 924s has phone dials with a 52.3 offset. I am considering obtaining Fuchs wheels that have a 23.3 offset. My question is how will the 23.3 wheels fit on the car? Will they stick out? Will they sit too far in and need wheel spacers?

they'll stick out. the difference here is 52.3-23.3, or 29mm. That's how much more the centerline of the wheel is pushed towards the wheelwell.

your 924 is technically 'late offset' but you'll have to stick to narrower wheels, like early Boxster, 964, base 993, etc. a 7" wheel on the front is pushing clearance. I have '98 Boxster wheels in 16x6 and 16x7 on my 924 Turbo.

You could turn your 924S into a Carerra GT clone, then run Fuchs.. Here are pix of a real one(not mine, I wish).




I run BBS Sport Classics on my 924S..
Riding high cause I had just bolted them on..
