Remember turbos already have 25mm spacers so another 30mm takes it to 55mm.
Check the wheel centre line and also consider the length of the studs.

21mm at the back of a turbo

Are you looking for 30-38mm on top of a 21mm stock spacer or instead of? You can bolt a 'bolt on' spacer to the rear using existing spacer and studs, I used 15mm at the back in addition to the 21mm stock spacer to fit the ET52 Wintercults

You need to consider the stud length and that you will need a bolt on spacer with studs and not bolts as per later Porsche....... as they are Porsche only fitment expect to pay circa £150-£250 per pair. I was lucky to find some Techart spacers...usually £250+ per pair and come with studs in the spacer so easier to fit the wheels using stock nuts. You will also need some steel nuts to bolt the spacer on the hub whilst watching they don't foul the wheel.

Why the big spacer?

Front spacers are not as easy as the rear......

Spacer.se is a Swedish site where you can get whatever Spacer you need for a decent price, they could produce what you want.

Thanks for all the comments. My Turbo has a 944 body (Was like this when I saved it). It had 16 inch teledials on it when purchased, and also 50mm spacers. I have since purchased genuine fuchs for it, and the spacers it currently has on are too larger for the off set of the fuchs alloys and they rub on the wheel arches, hence why I need some smaller spacers prior to driving the car. I will check out the website provided so thanks for that. It currently has spacers with the bolts on the spacers, which I know is the way to go
Thanks for the comments, always great as usual. :worship:

Regards

Glenn
