That photoshop needs rear wheels with deep dish

Also you can buy custom mini lite style wheels here

https://www.imagewheels.co.uk/rm2-alloy-wheel/

Just make sure you get the classic ones without visible bolt heads

Yes but are the C4S hubs in far enough to let a deep dish wheel mount up and not have the rim sticking out past the bodywork a mile. Question

Post IB 911s run pretty high offsets.

Well you might need arch extensions for the XWB look

IMG_0486 by Dave Hunt, on Flickr

I spent 9 hours with John Price measuring & drawing real cars before I
cut so much as a bolt and then sourced a LHD car from Poland.

Dont forget, even the real T2's were built from standard 5's

I got a freelancer to do a £3 mock up. Despite the views on here, I really like them. Im going to speak to image and see what’s next.

You definitely do get minilites and the gap alternatives bigger than 15". I recently tried to get a set of 16" ones for my R53 but could only find 15" or 17" so ended up with something else.

You need to remove the trailing [/img] from the URL to get it to work, eg:

The minilite mock up pic looks better than I'd expected. Personally I'd choose some suitably dished fuchs or campagnolo style wheels for a retro vibe. Having said that, if the minilites float your boat, then go for it & don't worry what others think

Its different, not sure though. On a Mk1 maybe but C4s looks too modern IMO.

Yep; more rear dish, slightly bigger and also a proper silver. I spoke to image wheels and they can’t do the traditional design which is really what I’m looking for. Will continue the search and keep this up to date if I make progress.

Hadn’t appreciated you were going to flog the wheels straight away for over double what you gave Ben Damn

I thought I was helping a fellow 911 uk’er source a good set of seldom available Carrera sports with great tyres.
I don’t dare tell him , lucky he isn’t on here much since selling his 911. I look like I have stitched him up. What a naive mug I am frustrated
