Thats probably an 8" wheel at the back.
I did run 9" wheels on my GTS bodied 924, i still have the wheels...i may try them on my narrow body 924 and report back.

But you can fit 10" rims on the rear in the stock fenders

Really? Didn't think you could go that wide. Anyone on this board running wide tires under stock fenders?


I'll see if I can take a picture, a friend of mine has it on his 931, 235 tires I believe.

I thought this thread was about the bling factor to run with flares, not the actual need for space?

My new track tyres are 245 Kuhmo R compounds on 8inch wheels, its not tight as it is, but to maximize space you need to roll in the lip.

Sorry for the orientation, it was messed up in the upload.

I would greatly appreciate more information on your setup please!
Wheel sizes and offsets, any spacers, tire sizes including aspect ratios for both front and rear.
I am considering a future project and I actually want to try to avoid using flares which is why I am following this thread. Fender rolling and even creating a slight "bulge" doesn't bother me on this particular car !
Thanks!

ET52 16x8" Design 90 wheels, 245/45 R16 (Kuhmo V70 Medium) all around. Planned on running 225s but the 245s were at a good price, they fit surprisingly well on the wheels, but the total circumference is a bit large. I think i still have the standard 931 spacer in the rear, coil overs in the front of course. Other than that its completely std, no rolled fenders etc yet.
