Tire/wheel sizing was created by Boulet
Does anyone have a chart or specs on maximum tire/wheel sizing for my 1979? I'm considering having my stock wheels redone but it might be fun to give it a new look altogether. The current wheels are the telephone dial type with 205/55/16. I don't want issues with rubbing but would like some beefier tires with a lower profile sidewall.

I don't know, it takes me to a google docs page, where you can download the spreadsheet. I don't know why it would take you to a gmail page....

Looks like it worked for me... Says "Download" in the upper left hand corner... I didn't download it because I don't need it, but looked to be *working* anyway...

That is where I got the link, from Andrew's signature :)
It works for me, whether I click on it, or copy it to another browser...

You can also find the link by searching Google with "andrew olsen 928 wheels". Of course you may end up with the same issue, as the link you will find is the same as the one I posted :)

I expect you would find the same directly from Andrew's signature as well, correct? If so, then perhaps you can encourage Andrew to get it addressed, and thank him for his efforts as well from the 928 OC members :)

It works fine for me, but you have to set several conditions:
  1. Have a Google account and login
  2. Download, as the macros don't work in Google Docs
  3. Enable Macros when you open in Excel - there is a security warning at the top
  4. Click the 'Agree' button

I was trying to get on with my iPhone and when I used computer I was able to get to link but unavailable to open that doc.....it comes up but only with Porsche logo. Maybe it's my laptop? I was able to open some of Andrews other docs which were helpful.
