Wheel replacement was created by Srussell019
Hi,

Recently purchased an 89 S4 and would like to update stock wheels. I know this is a complicated topic but would need some help from those that know. I'm located in CT and have owned a number of Porsches but this is my first 928. My other cars are all classics too.

Thanks,
Steve

I've been considering selling these lately. I bought them earlier this year, but the car I ended up finding already had a nice set of aftermarket wheels I've decided to keep.

The photos are of one front and one rear, and I am assuming that the numbers stamped into the lips are the widths and offsets. Asking $1k which is what I have in them. Front tires have very good tread but are aged and rears were run for awhile on a bad alignment by the previous owner.

Thanks for your reply. Do you have a pic of the wheels on a 928? Thanks, Steve

Took this one while doing an initial test fit.

Thanks, they look great. What year is the 928 in the picture? Want to make they will fit mine without modifications.

Appreciated,
Steve

They look terrific. Did they just bolt right on or did make mods?

1990, and in the picture the wheels were installed with no spacers.

Added another picture from another angle.

Edited to add: Just remembered that the front and rear fenders had been partially rolled by the previous owner, but he'd done that because he'd also been running with the cars' ride height lowered overall. I've been re-adjusting the ride height higher by small increments since I got the car, but at the time I was doing the test fit, didn't see that there would be any clearance issues.

That said, I don't have a lot of experience with what tire/wheel setups work and which ones don't on various year 928's, so the best I could do for now would be to get back with you with what size tires are on the rims pictured and the sizes of the tires on the rims I'm currently running. I believe both sets are the same sizes (18x8's Front and 18x10's Rear) but will need to double check that.

Edited again to add: For reference, the front tires in the pictures are 235/40-18's, and the rears are 265/40-18's.

What are the offsets of the wheels and is there any interference?
