I hope I'm not sharing old news, but I just learned that Bridgestone has released its Potenza RE-11 in the recently nearly impossible-to-find 245/45R-16 size! This means those of us wanting to retain our stock 16" wheels on our 928s have a solution beyond competition tires. Here is a link to a TireRack blog on the new tire, I hope this is helpful to the group: blog.tirerack.com/blog/roll-on/24545-16-...or-928?affiliate=HK8

I heard this was coming, but didn't hear that they were now actually available. That is good news though for sure!

Hey Thanks, now if I can just find wheels to look at with the 65 offset! The slots are growing on me, but would be nice to have some options.

Find some Design 90's! They have a wider front wheel which is the biggest benefit to a 928 and a wider rear as well (less important). I think they are 7.5" and 9" (IIRC) and I run 245's up front and 265's out back... Works pretty well.
