Looks like there is a 9.5 available.

You'll likely have a tough time finding those. They also made 7.5x17 ET 65 (965 362 124 05) but you'll need spacers.

If memory serves, those 9.5"ers were used on the Cup series cars and you'd need to both use spacers as well as flatten your oil tubes to avoid contact of the wheels on their inner faces.

I'm running 9.5 Cup I in the rear. I believe the spacers are 5mm, and no oil tube mod needed.

Thank you for correcting.

Maybe I mixed it up that one had to either use spacers OR flatten the oil tubes.

How do they perform? Other than the esthetic enhancement, is the performance noticeably different than narrower wheels?

So if you get an 8 for the front and a 9.5 for the rear could you run a 225 and a 265 without rubbing?

I'm running 225's and 255's, on 8's and 9.5's, no rubbing.

As to performance, I don't have a benchmark as the car was setup this way when I purchased it. : )

Super90,

Can we see pics please? Sound like they would look aggressive!

Super90,
I see you are the new owner of Gib's car, very cool! Gib's thread on the 964 helped convince me to acquire my first 964.

I had 9.50 Cups on my coupe. 5mm spacer, great stance and look. No rubbing issues. Handling, hard to say if I felt a difference, somewhat I guess.

Should have kept the wheels, and the car too. Been thinking lately about 9.50's for my Targa. Anyone actually seen the wheels in the Suncoast link?
Cup design denotes replica's to me.

I noticed the incorrect stock photo on all wheels, it could be the angle but the spokes appear thin. The only one that looks ok is the 8. All of the cup wheels state "cup design" and 2-3 weeks from Germany.

I think I've ordered from sun coast in the past, but I'll get an email out to them to clarify and provide the reply. I don't believe we're the only ones interested if these are available.

If anyone happens to know more about availability and authenticity of the sun coast cup wheel selection please share!
