My opinion

I would never go back to Fuchs. Just my opinion. Love your car. Mine is black.

speaking of fuchs I have a set of 6's and 7's on my back patio been thinking of turning them into garden hose reels. too much of a pain to box then up to sell them no one wants that size. They came in handy when I was getting the car painted though kept the over spray off my wheels and new tires.

you could probably sell the 6's pretty easily- that's the size that people have to donate as a core for Mike Lindsey to make a set of his wheels.

Looking good! One of the service managers at Prestige Porsche saw your car the other day and took a pic w/his camera phone. They were all standing around it admiring it. I told them who you were and what you'd done to it so far so you now have a gaggle of admirers!

Love the color of your car. Very unique.

Wheels make such a huge difference in how a car looks.
Here's mine with 15" Fuchs and 18" Rooks

17s? Who makes those wheels? I think you could have gone to 275/40 in the rears as that's what I did. Same size fronts.
your wheel upgrade looks sweet too,sets off the red really nice.
you know I don't know what brand they are, i cant find any markings on them. I got them used with the tires on so I am looking to get new tires still. I was wondering if 275's would fit..think I will try them it is still pretty squirrely with the 265's


Brian, those Rooks look like some pretty cool wheels. I have not heard of that brand before, are they custom?
