'82 931 with 928 Wheels ('86 S4, IIRC)
Front: 7J x 16 ET 65 - Don't know if wheels work with stock strut springs. Not much room between inside tire and spring. This car has a coilover kit with smaller diameter springs and the fit is great.
Rear: 8J X 16 ET 52.3 - Mounted with stock 20mm spacer in place.
Wheels stripped and polished using methods found in this forum.

I've never been into chrome, but this actually looks good, the colors work well together

Clearly not chrome, but chrome effect...polished aluminium. We've fallen into mistake with our words.

To make your wheels to look like this is easy but time consuming. Read my "how to" article. I usually polish them a couple of times a year. What happens is they get a little dirty and the chrome polish revives the shine.

Slightly O/T:
http://www.944racing.de/wheelweights.php now also added ‘Tire weights’ for the obsessive racer that needs to loose weight

Hi All,
Hoping someone can tell me more about some rims. I have struggled to get information about them. They were on my 924 when I bought it and was told they were hard to come by.... no other information available.

Rims have written on them:

Cheers,

Looking at tire choices.. I think I like..

BFGOODRICH G-FORCE SPORT COMP-2
http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire-selector/name/g-force-sport-comp-2-tires

Quite affordable (relatively) and very impressive reviews.. $92 each on tirerack, same for both sizes..

In..
Front 205/50ZR16, suggested rim width 5.5" - 7.5", 8.4" wide on 6.5" wheel, overall diameter 24.1"..
Rear 225/50ZR16, suggested rim width 6" - 8", 9.2" wide on 7" wheel, overall diameter 24.9"

I assume that both would run a little narrower and taller on 16X6 wheels but they don't have exact numbers posted for 6es.

It now has cheap all season 205/55/16's that sit 8.25" max width X 24.75" tall (actual measurement)..

I read here that 225's fit in the back but some don't recommend them on 6" wheels..

BF Goodrich customer service says that the 225/50ZR16 are absolutely within spec for 16x6 wheels and that I wouldn't notice a difference from 6" to 7" wheels , maybe 2/10 sec per lap difference there they say..

But they could just be trying to sell me tires and I trust your opinions over their phone reps..

This is to fit OEM 16X6 (et53?) forged fuchs gullydeckels on my narrow body 931..

My DD with 205/55/16's is due for new summer shoes and I'm thinking the like new but cheap all season 205/55/16's on my 931 can go on that and switch to some nice sticky sporty summer tires on the Porsche.. 2 birds 1 stone, win win, Porsche gets upgrade, yada yada..

Is this what I'd want? What do you think? yay nay? suggestions?

I'd want to do this right the first time...

Personally i wouldn't run more than 205 on 6s, and preferably same size all around.

This is a screen shot from Porsche recommended wheel/tire fitment as of 2008, the .pdf can be had here..
http://rennlist.com/forums/924-931-944-951-968-forum/526816-wheel-size-fitment-ends-here.html
It covers many Porsche models other than the 924 too.

It's striking me as odd/incorrect that they have et23 and et36 offset listed for the 15" wheels.
What gives?

Et23 is for the 5 lug setups
Et36 is for the 4lug setups with 4 lug 15" spider web wheels

Please and thank you..
