Hi all,
Can anyone confirm if a disc brake A Coupe can accept 15X6 deep dish Fuch wheels especially in the rear to clear fenders etc?
Thank you,
Steve

I have a set of later 15X6, which have the same offset as deep-dish on my 53 so I would say yes.

Do you have to deflate the tire to get it in place?

I'm running 195/60/15. I do not have to deflate the tires to install. The fronts go on with no problem and the rears I slip the top in first and then they drop in place.

My 356B T6 has 16 x 6 Fuchs on 944 front discs and hubs and VW 130 on 5 pcd drums on the rear. The tyres are Pirelli 195.45s. There is no clearance problems but I reckon if I had 15's on the front I would be quite tight with the 944 caliper.
