@MangoSmoothie.ca- what size rear tires were you able to go with?
P185/60R15 Yokohama AVID TRZ tires
What is the logic in using 944 rear end, trailing arms, hub and axles? @ALB It would give you hub centric balancing.
While that is true, Ray, it is my understanding that 944 rear trailing arms are wider (1"?) than Beetle irs arms, the 944 aluminum arms are not any lighter and because of their construction can't be narrowed like Beetle arms can be. Other than the brakes (which I think are huge overkill for our cars, especially since there are a number of rear disc brake kits already aimed at us) and the bolt pattern (which can also be done on parts intended for our cars) there's no real advantage.
