I have 993 Turbo calipers that I wanted to fit on the front of my 77 930, but ran into problems with rim interference on the 16 inch Fuchs.

I am trying to avoid going to 17 inch for various reasons- I heard 8 x 16 Fuchs from a 944 turbo ( 1986 model I think) may allow use of the 320 mm disc's amd 993 T calipers- is this correct according to other Pelicans experience?

If so, any model / part numbers to look for on these rims and any ideas where to find them? I am in Africa, so don't want to make a mistake when ordering from afar!

Yes, the 16 x 8, early 930 rears fit fine on the front of a 930. Not to be confused with the later 9s with the countersunk lug nut holes. I have been running early 930 rear 8s in the front with 225/50 for years. So has my good friend, ZLP930 with that silver 930 behind mine. And so have a lot of 930 owners in Europe. Here in the US I don't see it too often. It looks right in comparison to 7s up there which just look wrong. So if you have 8s, chuck them in the front and get yourself some 9s. If you have 9s, just go find some 8s for the front. Oops, here comes the subsequent increase in the values of 8s.

The 911 divided the world between those who could drive and the rest
80 930. 96 993 supercup. 95 993 gt2 evolution. 83 956. 89 Testarossa. 91 512 tr. 89 ur quattro
