Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure it would work , just want to confirm . Have to take xc wheels off and have a spare set of 15 in steel wheels off 960 .. 5x 108 of course

Thanks!

I don't think you will clear the calipers, they're 302 mm

Shoot. Didn't think about it... If rotors on XC indeed 302 mm , these def will not clear it.. bummer

Thanks Jim

those brakes should stuff a set of 16's, i would agree with Jim, 15's are out of the question.

If it interests you, i have a set of 17" Amatheas just pulled my winter tires off of them, they cant clear the R Brakes without spacers, so i had to upgrade them. if you are interested, i can let them go cheap. I think we have dealt with one another before, i bought R door panels off of you for the 98 a year or two ago.

16's will work fine, most OEM's are 16's...

Besides, 15" will make it feel like a '76 Electra.

There is a guy on the xc forums with 15" antila wheels on his P2 XC...

OP-the larger rotors are pretty easily identified even with the wheel on as they will have fins visible just off the hat. If you don't have the larger rotors, throw the steelies on and check for clearance. Whats the offset of the steelies? A 960 could have FWD or RWD offset depending on the year.
