The add said you need to return an identical but unplated set of wheels to get your deposit back (1200$) plus shipping. Starting to get pricey IMO. Iwould check the fine print. I just bought a set of 18" turbo twists with tires(1500 miles on rims and rubber) for 1100$.

It says: Front: 55mm / rear: 40mm - I believe that the rear is outside the limits allowed - should be in the 50's mm

Thanks guy....think I will pass on these and do some additional homework and also read THE FINE PRINT! Not in any hurry. I have MANY mechanical issues to resolve taking priority over the lipstick......just a passing thought

The fronts are WAY TO NARROW! The 928 only came with 6" wide wheels ONCE... they were the 15" phone dials for the early '78/'79 auto cars (and a few cheap a$$ Jewish guys who actually bought '80 5spd cars and had those stupid wheels put on to save a few dollars...literally!) You want as wide as you can get on a 928, NOT narrow!

I think that rear offset would work fine personally...might need a spacer but to get it close to the lip of the fender, but I think they would work, the fronts would also work, but as noted are just to damn narrow for our big heavy beasts!

Look at the 18" Carrera III wheels! They look great and fit even better than they look! The Carrera Light Weights are also a possibility as are the 18" Cayman wheels (the ones that have a sort of Fuchs look to them)...

Those fit well, but I am not a big fan of the look... My surrogate son will have a set of those for sale soon too if you can wait and are interested in them... He is 82nd Airborne in NC...

How about these? Would these fit? They are very local to me if anyone is interested in me looking at them for you. I'm not, I don't like 18" on 928's.

Here's another set that look pretty good. They look like they would fit.

Without chrome exchange they are 17-1800.00 bucks! - just wanted to make sure you saw that.

I always find it hard to tell without seeing them on a Shark. By them selves are are indeed a very nice-looking wheel.

You know that you need to know the offsets to find out if they will fit, right?

One of the parts many 928 owners are always looking for, are negative offset spacers, so some set of wheels can be made to fit. They are as rare as muffler bearings thought... :D

Yes you did Brad and they are the correct size and offset for the 928 ;)

If you search on Rennlist theres a posted chart on wheel size, offsets for the 928 etc taking out all the guess work.

Just watch Craig's list, Ebay and you might check in at your local P-car dealer if you have one and let them know you are looking for them. Sometimes they either get or even have take-offs in the back they will sell you at a good price!
