Offset on an 8" wide front wheel for a 928 needs to be at least 57 and low to mid 60s are better for proper suspension geometry and handling.

Don't run 911 wheels with a 50-53 front offset on your 928.

Those twist wheels used to be sold by Tire Rack. They have unusually small lug nut holes and a regular lug nut/bolt socket doesn't fit them - you need a thin walled socket that doesn't have a wheel protection sleeve on it either.

Dylan_928 Does your car have spoilers (front and back)?

If not, I prefer the phone dials 16", not the 15" that comes with autos or 944s.

Mark Anderson may carry them.

If your '80 has spoilers, 17/18" would look good. 17" may be better.

I think 17's and 18's look just as good (if not better) on cars without spoilers.
