They will work on cars originally fitted with 16 wheels.
There was one forum member who had the 16 phone dials on his early 986. Looked really good.
They wont fit over the larger brakes on a Boxster S since they came from the factory with 17s.

i am pretty certain it is the only thread on this forum, or the internet in general, on the issue, so a bit of a needle in a haystack for sure!

and i think they look good on a boxster.

15 inch phonedials fit barely on my 97 base. But they look too small.
