HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Post  cfgioja on Fri May 25, 2012 10:49 pm

Hey guys,

So I hit a straight track last weekend and all in all I did pretty descent for not destroying my car. I ran a 10.47 @ 104mph in an 1/8th. that sounds cool but I am having issues with traction. I did not build this to drag race, I just went to see how my setup does in a straight line and I am sad to say it needs improvement.

I am running the 1986 turbo rims at the moment which are 16x7 and 16x8 if I am not mistaken. This leads little room for rubber to improve.

My 225/50/16 are standing around 24" tall and have a narrow footprint of a weak 8". I have been looking at getting ahold of 305 tires but am stuck on the rims required for them. I would like to go 18x10 and 18x9 if at all possible so a simple 2 inch body kit would make up clearance issues with the wider rims.

So I have two questions in my process of building a plan. Where are you getting rims and what are you doing about the bolt patterns?

It depends on your budget, wheelenhancement.com is going to give you the best selection for Porsche rims and they can tell you what fits best in any Porsche.

Budget is going to be your controlling factor. My Works Meisters set me back close to $3K, 10" front - 12" rear. 87-944S (Mike), just plunked down a nice pittance for his rims. Remember, you get what you pay for.

I got mine from http://bozeforged.com/wheels.html, they can do Porsche hub centric on anything. Mine are 12 x 18 rear, 9.5 x 12 front, 265s for the front, 335s for the rear!

I found 2 sets (8 rims) of Cayenne knock off wheels for 900 on ebay. They are 18 x 10, ET 55, and I run 295s front and rear. You will need 2" spacers on the rear and 1" on the '86 front. No spacer is needed on the front if you change over to the '87+ offset.

As you say a body kit is required. Might want to check, but I think that 295s are as large as you should go on 10" rims.

Thanks guys for the sites. Never pulled those off google.

Now i will have to sit down and figure out the setup and make sure the widths for the tires.

Best bang for the buck IMO are the 996 turbo twist wheels, hollow spokes. fronts are 18*8 et50, rears are 18*11 et 45. You need spaces of course, you can get the from either Rennlist or 6speed for 700ish plus shipping.(usually)

I love the wheels and have had several sets, plus they are oem.

CCW is another popular option
http://www.ccwheel.com/
I'm thinking of going that way, but it's a long way off
