Default Wider Wheels and larger tires for 93 turbo 964

I wan to install 19x9 with 235s on front and 19x11 with 305s on the rear of my 93 turbo 964. I am told they will fit but so far no one can tell or give me the wheel offset (ET) needed for installation that will not cause suspension issues or body modifications. Might I get some help?

Why not post your questions on the 964T forum, I think you will have better luck.

Thanks, but might I ask why no 19s on my 964?

It's a classic, it's a small car, 19"s are going to look gigantic and likely too modern. Not to mention the weight increase and handling
/ride being diminished. Modern cars get away with 19"+ (or 21" on the GT3RS) because they're massive cars and can still run a fat sidewall. You're gonna end up riding around on some 35 or 30 series rubber bands for tires.

Appreciate your reply. Plenty of others are pretty much of the same opinion.
TY, Buck

I run 18" and it's plenty. They look pretty big. Mainly to clear my brakes. I also run 18 on my gt3rs.

My understanding is the turbo used same offsets as narrow body because the arms are different lengths.

Check my build thread for my specs. Also no way a 11 will fit on mine. Maybe a wide body you can.

TY sir. Nice ride. Mine is a turbo body but the more I find out the more I tend to think that 18s will stay. I've seen 964s with 19s and they look good but as someone said. I may be running on rubber bands.

I could not respond to your request but as others said 18's are as large a dia you want to go. A few have done 19's but not without constantly waffling a wheel. You will also find your rolling dia will be hard to match.

Make sure you measure carefully as these cars can vary and when fitting wheels and tires close to the limits what works on one doesn't necessarily work on another.
