    More American Racing questions

    Could anyone help me with this.

    Specifically - on 7x15's what offset would fit under the arches of a 72 911 with rolled lips?

    (I'm running 205x50's on the back and 195x50's on the front)

    'American Racing do not show any applications for Porsche at all in their catalog.

    I believe, however, that your wheels have a 5 bolt 5" PCD and 105 series wheels are available with this pattern.

    The standard 15 x 7 has a 3 3/4" backside setting which equates to a 6mm negative offset. These wheels are priced @ 145 ea. + VAT.

    Alternatively, American Racing offer a version of the Torq-Thrust II wheels with painted spokes in their Vintage Custom Shop range. These can be manufactured with either a 4" or 4 1/4" backside setting - equivalent to an offset of 0mm & 6mm positive respectively. These are priced @ 200 ea. + VAT.

    If any of these are suitable for your vehicle, I will check with American racing to see if they are aware of any clearance issues on your vehicle.'


    To ask is to seek denial

    5" PCD?

    Are you referring to the Bolt Circle Pattern/Diameter since you mentioned 5-lug? The B.C. should be 130mm.
    I need to check the Back Space on a wheel to make sure....

    The original 7" aluminum Americans had approx 4 3/4" backspacing.
    5" bolt circle, while close, is not the same as 130mm. You may want to start trollling around early Nova web boards looking for these wheels. The 7" Porsche pattern wheels are very popular with some 66-67 Nova guys because they are the only American that will allow the use of a 7" rim on a stock rear end. Go figure
