Would be best to get '87+ suspension with late 52.3mm offset. Then you can run those Cup-3 18" wheels.

For record, early 1985.5 944 Turbo had square dash AND 15" wheels.
I have personally fitted 15x7" Phone Dials to my '86 951.

The clearance issue isn't diameter, it's offset of the spokes. To clear 951 bigger brakes, the spokes have to be offset to the outside more. This is why 911 Fuchs of any size will NOT fit '86 951. Optional 16x7/8" Fuchs that came on '86 951s were special 951-only items with more spoke-clearance (even though mounting-surface was still 23.3mm offset). Part# 951.362.115.00 and 951.362.117.00
