Re: S4 brakes-

I remember after I fitted S4 calipers (using 928 intl's Aluminum adapters) and 993(?) front discs, the ID of the original 16" phonedials was too small to clear the tops of the calipers. So I tried Dish wheels, but the face of the calipers then hit the back of the rim. So I had to go to Cup rims.

FWIW.

Mine fit - this is an S4 front end on a 79. So the issue is not phone dials over S4 brakes but your non-original setup which is one disadvantage of using adapters instead of OEM parts.

No

Todd modified the spindles to match the S4 spindles. Not sure on the hub.

Those are stock S4 rotors.

Just an FYI :
We are a major manufacturer and exporter of alloy wheels in China . Moulds are more than hundreds. We make replicas and aftermarket wheels from 12inch to 26inch.For replica wheels, we have BMW, MINI, BENZ, SMART, AUDI, VW, Chrysler, KIA, HONDA, NISSAN, YHUNDAI, MITSUBISHI, MAZDA, LEXUS, TOYOTA, GMC, VOLVO, Porsche, CITRONE, OPEN, FORD, JAGUAR, LAND ROVER. The finish, expect for the normal colors, we have carbon, stainless steel lip (chrome and rainbow), stainless steel insert, and so on.



Still, we opened many nice racing wheels and replicas in this year. And , We always have thousands of updated stock in warehouse.



We look forward to your reply for further information.



Best Regards

The problem with using an 18" front and 19" rear on a Porsche is that the tire diameter front and rear is nearly identical. If you have a larger wheel on the rear then the sidewall of the rear tire is .5" smaller than the front tire sidewall. This looks a little awkward, like the front tire is taller than the rear tire.

Thanks for all this info and great dialogue, folks.
Plugging away here, just don't have a ton of time to put into it.

I'm going to have to have a set of these new phone dials.

Iconic. They say "928" to me.

Wow these are looking good. I had not followed this thread much because I had really been planning to go with 17s for my next wheels (mainly for a taller side wall, more compliant ride) but these look really great. I know these are going to be pricey, but any idea on the ball park?

These are shaping up well! Can't wait until all the refinements begin to get applied to them. Well done!

Like them both. As a Sci-Fi nut, I see meteorite craters in the protruding ones (cool to me), and for the flat ovals I see a very cool, organic pattern as well.

I have toyed with the idea of using both on the same car - flats up front, early turbo's in rear, all painted the same. Kind of a Hot Rod style applied to an exotic. Alan (Fikse Wheels) makes a good point about tires, however, so I would be tempted to deviate from stock diameters up front to keep the tires looking right, which may not work out well on our low cars.

The wheel in the ad from Porsche looks like a mix of the flat and blister version with larger center cap, larger lug holes, larger dial holes like the flats but still having the blister 3D effect. I like that the best, is that possible?
