I am going to be really putting time, energy and money into my 1991 900T to bring it back up to snuff and boost its performance (pun intended). I am open to ideas and suggestions from anybody that what’s to weigh in on what they would do if they were building their “dream 900 turbo”.
First ordered of business is wheels & tires. The old rubber has to go, it is unsafe. I am looking to make this a max performance car so I will also be trying to source a brake upgrade. One of the reasons that I want 17” wheels is to make sure they will clear any big brake system I end up installing. If anybody knows of good lightweight wheels that bolt up, I am all ears. The brands that make wheels I believe fit are Raceline, Konig & OZ. All three brands require centering rings to bring the 72.6 bore down to 65.1.
Alternatively I have thought of getting some wheels meant for the 1st gen Ford Focus and taking them to a machine shop to bore out the center hub to the 65.1 diameter. Another option is to get some H&R spaces and have a machine shop bore those out from 63.4 to 65.1 on one side.
A third option that probably does not exist is to some some sort of conversation that would allow me to convert to 5 lug at all four corners.
