      I am currently rebuilding a set of 3 piece rims and trying to determine how much my rim can go past the outside of my fenders without rubbing. I have rolled and pulled all four fenders. My current set up I want to run I have measured that the outside of the rim will protrude past the front and rear fenders by 3/4".

      Rim specs will be
      Front 17x8-1/2" et 14
      Rear 17x8-1/2" et 1
      Planning to run 215-40's all around

      That's the size tire I want as well. The pros have recommended 8.0" (or 8.5" rim if you want the stretched look for some pointless reason). Ideal ET is 35.. with a rear fender roll

      I don't know how much poke has to do with rubbing vs tire size and how low you are!

      et1 is going to be a lot of poke. I am running 17x9 et 15 on pulled and rolled fenders and I have about 15 to 20mm poke. So poke will be close to mine if you do the math.

      oh yeah I am also running 215 x 40 on the 9 and have a 1 finger gap. It rubs on bumps, potholes at 30+ MPH

      Need help. Trying to determine what offset and size I can fit on my 90 corrado. Car is getting ready to brake 500+ whp. Need to try and keep as much traction as I can. I must run 17" my brembo big brakes wont clear anything smaller. I will be putting drag radials on. And I will raise the front coils up to fit some poke of 9 or 10. Im not the best with offsets and fitment.

      I'll play along. I've been running these wheels on my Corrado since November of 2011. I almost never see them. Not even on Porsche. They were introduced in 2002 for the Porsche Carrera (996) but since they're only 17" almost no one ordered them. Most 996 buyers wanted larger wheels. However. There is another Corrado on page 4 that has these same wheels. So I'm not the only one.


      Wheel specs:

      Porsche 996 Carrera 2

      Front: 17x7 ET: 55
      Rear : 17x9 ET: 50

      Adapter specs:

      Custom made by a vortex member in PA.

      4x100-5x130
      Front: 40mm
      Rear: 30mm

      Tire specs:

      Front: 205/40/17
      Rear: 215/40/17

      Brake specs:

      Front: Grilling 60 calipers, braided steel lines, cross drilled rotors (stock diameter)
      Rear: Stock calipers, rotors, and lines.

      Suspension specs:

      FK Street-Line coilovers, all factory otherwise.
      FWD

      Body specs:

      G60 body with a VR6 motor swap.
      Fenders lightly rolled front and back

      Clearance summary:

      Very rarely rubs in front. Only with a particularly harsh dip/bump at high speeds. Or when making a sharp turn at very very low speeds and combined with some kind of elevation change. I.E. Speed bump while turning or aggressive driveway entrance while turning sharply.

      It used to rub in the rear all the time before I rolled the panels. With current height and lightly pulled panels, it no longer rubs.

      I know it said "one picture" but... Here's more than one.

      I buy and sell cars. So if you need something let me know. I have cars, people want cars, I can sell my cars to people, that's basically how this stuff works.

      Wheel specs:
      BBS RS 269. 16X8.5 all around ET28 w/1.5" lips all around.

      Spacer or adapter specs:
      No spacers or adapters

      Tire specs:
      205/40R16 Falken 912

      Brake specs:
      mk3 drivers edition 11.3"

      Grinded calipers, machined brake pads. Its a tight fit. Upgrading to Wilwoods for next year.

      Suspension specs:
      VR+
      KW V2 dampening adjustable coilovers

      Body specs:
      Stock, unrolled, unmolested VR6 fenders/quarters.

      Clearance summary:
      no rubbing in front with a tinge of negative camber. My guess would be -1.5 degrees. Very rarely will rub on fender liners over big dips.
      slight rubbing in rear on one side. Rear axle beam is slightly off so the side that sticks out more rubs slightly. Once I fix the axle issue I expect there to be zero rubbing.

      ^Blake, I was waiting for you to post. IMHO this is the perfect fitment for a Corrado. The wheels also look sexy as hell.
