Hi All,

Need some friendly input on wheels I'm looking to buy use. There 18" 8 & 10 wide. They have front offset 52 and the rears are 65.
Will these fit 87' 928s4?

Thanks in advance.
Ariel

Fronts are very dicey. 52mm would be close with 7", I think with 8" they will be at or past the edge of the fender and put you at risk of damage from big bumps. Also, 52mm would be likely to cause greater tramlining. Rears should be OK.

Steve,
That is not correct for the fronts.

An 8" with a 52 is AWESOME! Bigger ET is better on the 8" front wheel. I have Carrera Light Weights that are 8" and ET50...THEY are close but work. At least with 225 tires.

7" with a 52 would not be correct I do not believe, nor do I think you will find one that size anyway...but I could be wrong about this...

I also run50 ET with an 8inch rimand 225 tires. ET 65 on the back with 265 tires fit fine but i will be getting 15mm spacers as the setupdoes not fill the wheelwell like the front.The spacers also give a finall 50 ofset wich is sprc for the car. this setup looks great and no handling issues.

Glad that you can confirm that an 8" width fits with (only) 52mm offset. 7" should actually fit better then. The OEM offset is 65 and marginal offset is 55, with a 7" or GT 7.5" wheel....so going both wider and lower offset is not optimal. Normally one would want higher offset to accommodate a wider wheel. Though if they fit and meet the owner's goals, I'm not the guy that is going to finger-wag about suspension geometry.

I'm sorry everyone I total forgot I posted this thread. I hate it when I forget to subscribe to thread, especially my own. Thanks for all your input. The wheels sold quickly, just my luck. Any member selling a set of wheels? Also I found this in my archive Andrew Olson's wheel fitment guide but I cant upload. I guess xlm files not allowed.
