18" Turbo twists on a 87 944T

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

A buddy of mine just gave me the turbo twists off of his 2006 C4S they have brand new tires on em too (took the rims off soon as he bought his car). 225/18 front and 295/18 rear.

This is going on a 1987 944 Turbo.

The question I have is that I just mounted the the front one and rear ones, the rear sits fine but it sticks out of the sides of the car about 1/2". and the front ones mount but the wont sit flust with the rotor the look like they need about a 1/4-1/2" spacer.

Has anyone here put these on their 87 or know what size spacers I would need or what.

I had done this to my 86 and it firt fine with spacers but looks like if I use spacers for the rear it would bring it out even more, which is what I dont needis the 87 different fron the 86 somehow? if so what is the difference (rotors or axel or ?)

So basically:

Rear (sticks out) 18x11 et45 295/30/18's

Front (won't site on the rotor need about 1/4" spacer) 18x8 et50 225/45/18's

Please let me know what you guys think or know about what I should get spacer wise and how to make the rear go in (maybe 86 had different rotors)

Thanks for all the advise,


P.S. I have a new C4S rear wing (motors plugs and everything) let me know if you guys are interested

You need closer to a 60et on the backs. Spacer will only make it worse. You're not going to be able to fit them unless you do some bodywork. Sorry.
