I know these aren’t for everyone especially with how narrow they are (16x7 +35) but forged by Fuch and relatively inexpensive. I’ll be putting 225/50 tires on it and it allows 312mm brakes. Maybe the 986 calipers may fit under it too.

312mm will fit under 16inch rims....so long as the alloy is designed for big brakes and/or the ET is suitable..

VW factory alloys in 17rims are 7inch wide, with 225/45 tyres...so I don't consider them "narrow".

VW 16inch rims are usually 6.5inch wide with 205/55 tyres..

& a Fuch five spoke can't beat it...mind you I like a five spoke...which I have for winters...

....Team Dynamics Pro Race 3, 17x7, = 8.2kgs (18.1lbs) per alloy rim...710kg (1,565lbs) load rating...circa 19kgs (42lbs) including Michelin Alpin A5 225/45R17 tyres.

These are from an Audi B9 as an optional winter wheel. What B9 it came from, not sure. They fit my 312 without issue. But, not sure if it will work if I go the 986 caliper route.
