The Fuchs are 16" x 6" and the Image wheels are 17" x 6" but as you can see there is plenty of room, even a 15' wheel is not out of the question. Hello from Australia.

:They look ace, yeah there seems to be quite a bit of space underneath them. With the right size of rim 15 inch could be an option as well(Porsche teledials). Thanks again, you have been very helpful.

And Hello from Malta

I use the stock master cylinder and rear drums for now. I have a 20.6 mm mc to go on and a Kerscher rear disk kit.

That sounds quite good, the kercher kits look very well made as well, and they are from the EU so no import Charges! Thanks

I have Tarox6 on front of bug - 20.6 MC, Kerscher rear disc kit. Plenty of room for caliper fitted behind 15" American Racing D spokes which are quite chunky compared to a more modern rim.
They work well but also look the part - my calipers are matt grey colour so hide away quite well

Cool, it seems to be that Kercher brakes are quite popular, locally CSP is generally well known. Never seen any Kercher kits around. Thanks for the info, yeah 15inch wheels mean the availability of better side wall sizes for the road.

Just a quick side note guys, has anyone used the Epytec adapters and hubs? These would allow the 944 discs to be used, and a simple adaptor would allow a variety of calipers to be used.
