What size collapsible wheel is needed to clear 350mm discs/ 6 pots ?
 
C'mon guys, somebody must have one ??

I know the one from a PCCB fitted 6 TT fits and have a part number but can't find a used one for sale with that same part number. I need to know wether its a 17 collapsible or bigger and ideally the offset of it.
 
The 16" collapsible spare from 996 range etc. will not fit. The 17" inflated spare from a Boxster etc. will. That will fit the front 350mm discs with 6 pots (just) provided you have the 5mm spacer and longer red sleeve bolts. The rear is no problem.
 
Thanks Geoff, so on that basis the 17 collapsible should be OK too ?

Wouldn't count on it. The collapsible spare has a deeper dish than the high-pressure spare, so might well not clear the caliper, even with a spacer.
 
Boxster 17s are certainly much easier to find. Do they fit in the 996 OK ??

Highly unlikely - remember that you have less boot depth unless you are also ditching the polystyrene tray with the compressor, first aid kit, tools, etc... in it as well.
