You have the best wheels possible for your car, IMO; I feel Fuchs are for 911's and 930's, not this family of cars. Only my opinion. And for me, 15" wheels are just too weedy on the modern design that is the 944 family.

My SC has that three-spoke wheel stock; I believe it's 380mm. No power steering in 911's until the 964, so you don't want a little, go-fast (350mm) wheel. For mine, I was lucky enough to score a coveted Extended Hub wheel of the same design, very desirable to bring the wheel and extra inch back from being so close to the dashboard. In my 924S parts stash, I have a similar hub purchased here on the forum; once the car is together and I have some road-time behind the wheel, I'll decide if the car needs it; having one's arms over-extended by a particularly distant steering wheel is tough on the neck, shoulders and uper back.
