A member wrote you about putting wheels from a 1994 on his 1987 carrera. You are correct, there are many factors he did not provide. But for whatit's worth, I just put a set of 17" 993 Cup 7" 205/50/17 up front and 9"255/40/17 in the rear on my 1988 Cabriolet. My car is stock ride heightand narrow body. For proper fitment I ordered 1" spacers for the frontand 1.25" spacers for the rear. Perfect fit, no rubbing lock to lock. In fact, I could probably go another 10 mm wider in the rear. When I wassearching for the same information, everybody had a different answer. Very frustrating. So I measured them myself and ordered away. For priceand quality I recommend Ralph Boothe as advertised in Panorama. I hopethis helps others in the future.I also fixed the heater linkage on my 1988 Carrera. The plastic ballsocket connecting the servo and heat control lever was broken and binding(trying to drive it into the floor). I replaced the socket $1.67 fromthe dealer good to go! Why doesn't Porsche use metal socket like on acarburetor linkage?
