I thought any steel wheel could be banded. Only a case of chopping in half and welding a piece in. Can’t see there being a problem with that. (Done by someone who knows what they’re doing - much be tricky to get them aligned perfectly! )


There are companies using automated cutting and welding to avoid alignment issues. Just needs to be mounted on a hub, turned at the desired speed, cut and welded back. Saw a video some time ago being done. Looked really straight forward with the right kit.

Pretty common in Ford and VW circles etc.

If you get them banded, get them to weld up the 'spacesaver' valve hole (I believe they are larger than standard?) and drill in a new hole for standard valve

But the whole point of having a 5-stud 924 is that you can fit practically any Porsche or VW wheels. (width and offset not withstanding)

Only Porsche wheels on a 5x130PCD, not VW

There were some Merc Sprinter/G Wagon steels on fleabay a while ago

Are all Porsche spare wheel steelies 15''? Would look far better in 16''

I have a 996 turbo ally spare......man is that heavy. I have considered buying 4x Boxster spares and running them on my car. The drifts would be immense :nod:

I have seen Boxster spare wheels used on period 356/911 rally cars with mud/snow tyres.
