Let me clarify... I only have phonedial wheels. I'm not sure about the hubs and struts being able to be used.

I have a Carrera front end and 5-bolt rear.

Regards,

I don't think the 924 parts will fit on a 914 without a whole lot of work. (Anything can "fit" if you have a welder and a sawz-all... Eventually.)

I think the five-lug 924s used the standard 911 bolt pattern of 5x130mm, so the regular five-lug conversion techniques will work to fit those wheels.

The easy answer is no. I know somebody replied yes and has a pic, but these wheels have the wrong offset. All 914's are all a little different in dimensions so you can try it and see. I have a 924S and a 914-6. I put the phone dials on it with the 205/60/15 Yokohama AVS-I's, and all 4 of them rubbed on the inside. That's not to say you can't use spacers and long studs, but now you're into about $150 that you could have used to buy wheels that fit.

Mark is right, there are 1/2" spacers in the rear.
