15" wheels over stock non-S brakes?

Would 15x7 et53 late phone dials fit over the non-S brakes?

I see some references to guys running 15x7 track wheels on a 986, but no backspacing info.

Thanks

edit: $270 for a replacement - silly.

Turns out the door, or valve, inside was stuck. It's freed up now - going to soak it and clean it a little more before shelling out $300 for a new part. Yikes.
