    arn't porsches 5 x 130?

    spacers/adapters wise it depends on what offset your current wheels are, what offset the porch wheels are? and how much poke you can get away with.

    ^^ what he said. We need to know your porker wheels offset to even start to guess what size you may need. What size tyres are fitted? That will have an impact too

    yes porsche are 5 x 130

    front tyres are 225/40/18 et 49
    rears are are 265 /35/18 et 49 most prob need to get smaller tyres as they look too chunky want a small mount of stretch

    pretty sure mines 5 x 112 and not sure on et but standard

    i dont want too much poke just nice on the edge of the arch

    thanks

    my understanding is i need a pcd converter from 5x112 to 5x130 and spacer in one as you cant run adapter and spacer together?

    been out in the rain today and the wheels on my car at the mo (standard audi ones) are 235 45 17 et 45

    i know i need pcd convertors but its working out the thickness of them i dont know how to do. iam also looking at changing the rims to radinox ones so the wheels are currently 8 and 9s but i take it they will become 8.5 to 9.5 with radinox?

    when its 9.5 is that a 2.5 dish?

    Wheels PCD Adapters VW Passat New Beetle to 5x112/5x130 | eBay

    ^^^ for example these are 15mm ones. so starting from the procshe offset of et49 combined with these adapters youd end up with et34.
    not suggesting these would fit.

    tyres wise, id get the spacers first then trial fit to see if its going to rub and what sort of clearence there is.

    well found some adapters on ebay 25 mm thick, which i was a bit worried about but my friend said he could machine them down if too big so hes some pics of trial fit with tyres that the wheels came on.
    [​IMG]

    as you can see the back sticks out too much so asked a few people what size tyres they were running on 9s and i had some spare front tyres that came with the wheels so i put these on yesterday nice bit of stretch.

    [​IMG]

    and then i did a new trial fit.

    which sits allot better.

    Thank hoping it will look better once lowered. The rears are the same as why I've got on the front 224/40 actually supprised how much better they look from just changing the tyre.
