Then again I have way too much stuff around here...
If they're off of a 951 the fronts are 7's and the rears are 8's. The 8's have a different offset (less IIRC) than 911 8's, so they can be used to mount a larger tire on the front of a 911 with less chance of contacting the fender; and the 951 8's will allow a larger caliper if one wanted to upgrade the 911 front brakes. Very desirable at one time, I don't know if they still bring a premium price (more than 911 offset 8's) or not.

Just thought you'd like to know.

To answer the original question - I'd make sure I always had a set of Fuchs around to put back on the car (IMHO Fuchs ARE the 911 wheel).
