H&R are the way to go. Mine were made in Germany.

I sold a set of 18" twists that had 55 offsets and were using a 1" spacer. No fitment issues. Replaced them with 17" Cup 1's with 23 and 15 mm respectively. No spacers required.

18" twists:


17" Cup 1's:

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Cup 1"s - Got the same wheels on my 89 Turbo S

Hey...
Got the same 17" wheels (bought them new for $1400.00) and same off sets on my 89 Turbo S and love them but they are up for sale, make me an offer, was asking $993 + Shipping... + for the right price and close by I can meet you any where with in 50 Mile Radius of Cincinnati, Ohio or PU for free shipping they fit 86 Turbo perfect with out any rubs.!!!! Later models 87 & 88 Turbo cars will have to roll the fender inner lips so they won't rub!
89 Turbo S cars are rolled at the factory when they were made!
Ron... PM me if interested - a set just like these wheels OEM #'s just sold on BAT for $4,000.00!!!!! You can't tell the difference by looking at them!

You don't want to space all way out to stock 23.3mm offset. You really want about 10mm more offset in order to put the wheels inwards little to fit wider tyres. So 1" is about perfect.

Yup... 25.4MM = 1" + 23.3MM ET offsets = 58.7MM ET Off Set, I can run 57 MM off set ET's on this 86 Turbo with the 11" wheels and a 1" Spacer in the pictures below.
With 305's / 19's on the rears & 285 / 19's on the front wit no rubbing!!!

Man, you've one beast of machine! And awesome trailer too!

I prefer to calculate effective-offset starting with wheels in question, then subtract spacer. So his 55mm wheels end up being 55-25.4mm = 30mm offset effectively. I prefer 35mm on '86 since there's quite bit more room on inside than outside. Managed to get 11.5" wide wheels in rear and 10.5" on front with 35mm offsets.

Yup#2...

Yup & Yep..#2,
The only bolt on the trailing arm that you will have trouble with is on the outside of the trailing arm, if the tire wall flex's to much it will rub the said height adjustment threaded bolt head, if by chance you have any screws up on this inner wheel well clearance problem... just take a saws all and cut off the threads flush with the prodding nut! Problem solved! Cutting out the inner and outer (1) piece rear wheel arch and width in order to run very large tires is just some simple eye balling and some correct measurements on how big you want to go, and how many 3/16th steel rivets you want to use... before you start cutting!!!
