Default Another will they fit ??? - Phone Dials

For use on a 911 SC - Phone Dials, 7 x 16 and 8 x 16 with 23mm offset. These should fit, pehaps needing a spacer in the rear to compensate for the usual 10.6mm offset of 911 Fuchs, no?

Do many 911 folks run the phone dials? I figured they could be a less expensive "street" wheel while I use Fuchs for my track tires.

Anyone know the weight of the phone dials vs fuchs? I assume since they are cast and not forged they should weigh a bit more...

This is just a suggestion, so take it for what it is worth. I think (Personal opinion) phone dials look wierd on a 911. There is a guy with a post here, with some Fuchs for sale. They are 15's, and 944 wheels, but so what, at 10 feet no one can tell the difference. By the way, the darn spacers cost anywhere from $100 to $250 apiece. Put 245 50 15 Khumos on the rear, and 225 50 15's on the front, and think they will look good. (I realise that is a matter of opinion, so will every one please not get too vile on replies.)

I think you'd want to use your nicer wheels on the street and put the crummy ones on for track use...

7" dials weigh 18.5# and the 8's weigh 20#.while the fuchs weigh 18 and 19# respactively.
i've seen a 911 with phone dials and kinda liked it.... but it does take getting used to.
not a normal sight.
