The Boleros won't work?!?
Are you sure about that? I know that Brian Bilotti and
Tom Saltino were both running those wheels with 993tt
and larger calipers, in the original ET40 setup.
The ET35 Boleros would have even more clearance, but I
don't know which ones you have.

Why?? Never ask a car nut why!
Actually, I have a pair of new 312x25mm rotors laying
around, and was just wondering.
Of course, I also have a pair of Boxster calipers
around here somewhere too, which begs the question of
why I don't just do the BIRA upgrade. But, one of the
reasons is that the BIRA (or any Porsche upgrade) will
not work with the 17x8 Bolleros I'm running (and I
just LOVE those wheels).
