1986 951 8x16 Rear Fuchs fit Rear of 1986 944NA ?

I'm interested in obtaining a set of original '86 951 7x16 and 8x16 Fuchs for my '86 944NA.  The 951 Fuchs front and rear offset (23.3mm) seems to be equal to that of my 7x15 phone dials.  Sounds good; however, I notice in the attached list of 944 wheel sizes from Rennlist that the wider, rear, 8x15 Fuch optional wheel for an '86 944NA had a 10.6mm offset.  This raises my concern that an '86 951 rear hub is not located the same as for the same year 944NA.  Can anyone with experience using '86 951 7x16 and 8x16 Fuchs on the same year 944NA provide some advice/guidance ?

Need to get alignment. What are the specs I should advise the alignment shop?

Tires for a 944

I have 17 inch rims on my car. What are the best tires for everyday (summer only) use? No racing. I currently have 255/40's on the rear ans 215/45's on the front.

944 S2 Wheels

I have a 1990 944 S2 Cab. It has what looks like 928 wheels on it (polished slotted disks). My question is what other Porsche OEM wheels will fit on this car? Will the Fuchs offered in 1986 only for the 944 Turbo fit? Thanks.

Thanks, Leyden

17" wheels and tires for a 86- 944

Just bought a 1986 944 and want to upgrade the wheels and tires to aleast 17". I am looking for used porsche wheels and would like some advice for correct wheel and offset and spacers if needed.

what size tires also.  Plan on keeping front and rear the same.

Why not 18" wheels

Model: 944S2, Year:1991, Mileage:63,000, Type of use:Street use only
Porsche bulletin ...Subject:Installation of Porsche 18" Wheels Not ApprovedWhile Porsche provides specs for 17" wheels on 944, 18" wheels are not approved. Assuming overall diameter with tires equals original size, why not 18" wheels? I would think that if diameter and wheel width/offset were correct there should be no alignment issues.

Porsche Design 90 OEM 16

Model: 944 turbo, Year:1988, Mileage:86000, Type of use:Street use only
This is a follow-up to my previous question.I understand these Design 90 wheels come in 6,7,7.5,8,or 9 inch widths. Will all work on my 1988 944 Turbo? Somone thought the the hub area might be different on some of the widths. Also heard that some came with a wheel sensor and these might not work either for a 944. ???I am told the ones I am thinking of purchasing came from a 1991 911 C2 Cabriolet .I believe my original phone dial wheels are 7 inches in the front and 8 inches in the rear.Thank you
