Well maybe this is a sign that I really am getting old but when I see aftermarket wheels on 911's or 930's they just don't look right. I don't mind Lindsey's or other period correct looking wheels and I understand the performance advantage that modern wheel sizes and tires bring but lets not forget even the youngest of these cars is pushing 20 years old and to me a 930 with turbo twists is like a 60 year old with a comb over....

Having said that Porsche's are all about personal enjoyment so by all means do your own thing but for me it's all about the Fuchs.

I just looked in my folder and realized I have no pics of my car with the Lindsey's installed! what a travesty. I had researched the question of wheels for some time and you can't beat the Fuch look. So, with the Lindsey's I get the best of both worlds. I'll post pics later.

I think I'm going the route of a set of TruDesign Wheels...this is a 17 x 9 1/2 for my 88' Carrera. I was contemplating Fikse FM 10s...but after seeing this deep dish, I can't go any other way.
