A steel hub is way more heavy than the porsche alu hub is.
Low non-suspended weight all the way for me.

The interesting thing about this hub is it will allow stock PCD wheels, which the porsche hubs will not.

I would think you would get a disc/rotor that you want to use and have the machine shop 'make it work'.

My '98 has them as do later ones, so '98 to 2004 would be a safe bet.

This is exactly what I've done. I wanted to use Porsche brakes on my bug, but the wheels I have are 5 x 108 pcd. You can't redrill 4 x 130 hubs to run 5 x 108 because the holes interfere, nor can you redrill 5 x 130. So I had to buy blank (vented) discs and turn them down to use as hubs. Then spend a lot of time running through the parts catalogue to find 300mm discs with the same thickness and the right pcd. Loads of fun.

But at least the rear was cheaper......Porsche 924 discs....same as bug ones but with 4 x 108pcd. Redrilled to 5 x 108 and im ready to go.

Next time im using porsche stud pattern!!!!

Hi

Looking for information on Porsche brakes and I came across this old post that I made.

I'm resurrecting the Porsche brakes that I ran on my 1302 and then later on my 1303 for a while for my sons 1303. I've had them converted to 114.3 stud pattern as my son wants to run Jap wheels.

Anyway I did eventually do what I proposed in this post with 944 hubs and an adaptor bracket. 944 grease caps even come with a speedo cable drive hole

Steve

Nice adapters! Who made those?
I run the 944 grease caps as well on the notch: works well with the stock VW speedo indeed!

Thanks Wally, a friend of mine Dave Stocker from LMS engineering who was a retired tool maker made them for me, he made lots of things for me including all the machine work on my sons oxy boxer, he also built a tube chassis drag car. Sadly he passed away earlier this year with lung complications from our bush fires
