Pictured here are ROH 16 x 7" and 16 x 8" rims that were made in Australia. These are on my '73 Super with 924/944 lowering springs, probably too stiff for the street but I'll see what I want to do after autocrossing the car. They weigh:

16 x 7" 19lbs.
16 x 8" 22.5lbs.

I was doing a test fit here, currently I have 928S rims on the car. Will be getting widened fenders at some point, etc.

I'm now looking into these for my girl's 1303 that has stock fenders all the way around - anyone try 17x8 (ET40) with 215/40's on back? Lowered one inner spline.

Super old thread, but still info to know.

I picked up a set of original phone dials in the early offset (ET23.3). I'm running n/a 944 front discs and coil overs with 2.5 inch springs. Where would the phone dials foul the car? Total back spacing is 112.2mm. Seems like it would fit.

I bought a 5 piece centers only about 10 years ago. I plan to have the outter blanks of custom width and offset. I'd hoped for a stock look, but wide rears.
