Post Need quick phone dial rims on a 911 advice...

I am looking for some cheap autoX wheels. I have found a set for sale. Two quick questions:

The ad says they were off of an 85 911. I have never heard of 911's with phone dials. Did they come with them? I am worried about offset problems.
They have 205/60R15 tires on them. How wide are these rims? Any opinions on whether these would make decent AutoX wheels for my 86 Carrera?

TIA,
RJ

I've never seen phone dials on a 911..so not sure if they fit or not...bolt pattern will be the same but you just need to check the offsets. I do have a set of 4 7X16 flat dish wheels off my 928 with Bridgestones RE's on them. Not sure what the offsets are on those but I could go check if interested (put turbo twists on the 928). I'd try them on my 911SC to see if they fit but it's getting a face lift at the body shop.

Thanks Jim, I have never seen them on a 911 either. I am looking for cheap race rims and it was a decent deal, but not worth the risk.

for a few years they were the standard wheel (replaced the cookie cutter as standard) can't remember the exact years. i have some brochures that show the phonedials on a 911 (not accessible to me now) they seemed to be more common on the european cars. saw a set on a lowered silver 911 that looked pretty good. although they look a little heavy, they are only a few pounds heavier than fuchs. max

here is a <a href="http://forums.pelicanparts.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=104919&highlight=911+with+phone+dials" target="_blank"> link </a> that has the 911 compatible offsets and a few pictures. Mikkel has some pictures of his car with phonedials on his website.

The phone dials off an 86' 951 will fit your early offset 911. I just bought a set of HRE's that came off an 86' 911 and they fit, so I would imagine that the oppisite is true as well.

Yep- Late PD offset 86 and later 944, all 951 and 924s (52.3 mm i believe) will fit 911's. I've seen a lot of PD's on 911's.
I have a set (or 2..) of late offset if youre interested..

'86 and earlier 944's have the same offset as 89 and earlier 911s. '87 and later 944's have the same offset as '90 and later 911s. I have a set of 16x7 phone dials with the correct early offset for your 911 if you are interested. $350 for set. [email protected]
