I have two red 17" space savers as well. I use them only fro drag racing.
Stock they have a 105/95/17 tire with an 'M' speed rating (160 km/u max iirc)

They are 3,5"x17 ET19. Really need the part number?

Rears are the 5,5x15 specimens, just for drag racing used here:

hello

you people using the 15" space saver wheels are using them with 4 pot brembos ok? do they clear ok because i was under the impression that you needed to use 16" and bigger wheels to clear the 4 pots?

There is no general '4-pot Brembo' as there are many types and they all come with different disk sizes as well...

To my surprise I did manage the 15" spacesaver around my former 302x32 disk with the huge 928S 4-pot brembos, so my guess is they clear more easily than most other rims, but no guarentees whatsoever.

Rears usually always clear. I now have 299x24 with the 993 rear caliper and that clears fine as you can see in the picture above.

Cheers for that Wally,
I read the 'which 944 conversion' in the tech articles.
The 1st method was to use a Kerscher rotor, CB dropped spindle, and 4 piston 944 caliper.
Now, after searching on here i think i remember people saying you must use a rear caliper as the Kerscher rotor is only 20mm thick.
Id like to go for this method i think, as there is next to no machining, and everything apart from caliper will be new.
If I did this method, I assume the 944 rear 4 pot is one of the smaller ones so maybe I could use these under 15" space saver wheels?

My guesstimate would be yes, but no guarentees as I have not done exactly that myself.

Here's my 996 spare in my 1302. Lots of room, even for my new triangulated strut brace in the works....
