Do you mean how accurate is it? I checked the actual dimensions to the tire

I have on hand and it looked pretty accurate to me.

Absolutely no chance. I have 10" on mine and it required about 40mm wider wing with practically no clearance on the inside or outside..

Ricola,

I have cup2 17" 9" on the rear with steel IRS.

Today im using one spacer, but what is the best solution for using 944 parts and the wheel less clearance on the inside?
im ask because im see diference early and later 944 hub models.

thanks

I am using steel 944 parts with no spacer and cayman offset wheels. My closest part inside is the spring plate bolts, I even had to grind the head down to get clearance!

Ricola,

The offset of your wheel is 43? The backspace are the same!

I dont have shure, but the beetle IRS steel arms looks are the same dimension with 944 Alu arms , the diference stay only in hubs.
Anyone have more information about this?

Thanks
