Replacement tire for Michelin Pilot Sport Rib N2

Model: 911, Year:1990, Mileage:105K, Type of use:Street use only
Porter at the Tire Rack tells me that the Pilot Sport Rib N2 is no longer available and I need to replace worn fronts only-did the rears last spring. He wasn't sure what to recommend, but said probably with PS-2 N3. If he'd been confident I would have bought them but he wasn't so what advice do you have for me? I'll pass it along to him x672 at the Tire Rack.

DE Wheels for 88 911

Model: 911, Year:1988, Mileage:140000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
Chris, I am going to be getting wheels for my 88 Carrera to use for DEs in the Pacific Northwest. I have 6 and 7 x 16 BBS wheels and want to upgrade for better performance. Should I go to 7s and 9s in the 16s? To 17s? I'll be keeping them for a while and know that tire choices are getting even more limited.Thanks much.

maximum wheel size

Model: 911 targa, Year:1987, Mileage:109,00, Type of use:Both Street & Track
I am looking to change the wheels on my 87 911 targa to a 17" fuchs replica wheel and would like to know the maximum wheel width my car can accomodate for the front and rear.

racing

Model: Carrera 3.2, Year:1988, Mileage:86000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
I'm doing more autocrossing and think that the Pilot Sport Cup tires I've been using, while wonderful for DE are terrible for AX. What tires are seeing the most success? I'm currently using a 17" wheel, 225 front, 255 rear.

will they fit?

Model: 962, Year:1991, Mileage:54000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
seller:Porsche 911 wheels. Came with my 1981 930 but are originally from a C 2 I believe. Fronts are 7"x16" w/ 205 tires Backs are 9"x16" w/ 255 tires ( I think) buyer: will these cup 92 wheels fit my 91 stock C2.thanks

tire pressure for storage

Model: 964, Year:1991, Mileage:144000, Type of use:Street use only
I have a set of 18's, 225 in front and 265 rear. I've been told that I should over inflate the tires for winter storage if not using jackstands. Do you recommend this approach and if so, what tire pressure would you recommend?

Carrera 4 Wheel Upgrade: Tire Pressure

Vehicle Information: Model: 964 Carrera 4; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.6 stock; Total Mileage: 90000;

I'm back... After browsing the Bentley Technical Data manual for the 964; they recommend 44 psi for 275/35 ZR 17, and 36 psi for 255/50 ZR 17 (p. 44-11). My new rear tires are 255/40 ZR 17. Not sure which is correct. Do we have any tire experts out there that could comment?Dave CooperCanton, MI

Carrera 4 Wheel Upgrade: Tire Pressure

Vehicle Information: Model: 964 Carrera 4; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.6 stock; Total Mileage: 90000;

I have done a search and could not find this topic. I have installed 17" Boxster wheels (17x7 Front and 17x8.5 Rear) and tires on my C4. My question is about tire pressure. The original 16" Design 90s state 36 psi front and 44 psi rear. Is this applicable to the new 17" tires as well?Dave CooperCanton, MI
