If your building a 3 piece wheel, what does it matter if you have the wheel first? I was thinking build the car/flares to what you want, then build the wheels to fit.

But what do I know.

Steve - probably the best size for the rear is as Brian - RarlyL8 says 335/30 x 18" I would think a 12" rear would be best for that size. On the front I would think 8.5 up to a 9.5" would work, but remember you do not have power steering and the very large wheels gets to be a handful to turn at low speeds. I would think a 2.75" outer lip on the front with a 6.75" inner makes a 9.5 front wheel and in the rear the widest rim (outer I can get is 5.25") so that with a 6.75 makes a 12". Those centers are BBS, If you are going to keep the 965 style front and rear bumpers - basically sounds like you are going to build a RSR 965 wide body. The most widely accepted, best styled wheel for the 965 cars is the Speedline 3.6 Turbo or RH 3.6 wheel. Problem is they were never made in these sizes to fit your early 69 911. It is all custom. 805-498-7261 jdorociak@gmail.com

Torres, caution with the fender extensions, the natural flare has a downward slope, it the extend them with that same angle it will look much lower than the front and be slightly weird.

Right next to my car at speed werks there is a 930S that had this done to it and I looks visibly off especially with bigger wheels. Just throwing that out there,

My thoughts again if the wheels are built, with tires and the body guy is extending the flared fender he gets to see if the visual looks right as he is building vs just making a 14" rear flare, mounting the new tires/wheels and looking at the rear end/ side view and seeing everything looking right. It is conceivable that someone could actually make a bodywork mistake and not see it until tires/wheels mounted and everything settling for the first visual look. Jim

So Torres, you're a Rauh-Welt Begriff fan. Me too. I just recently found out about RWB, saw an article in Eurotuner magazine. I really like their riveted-on fender flares, they are very nice. I suppose I might be prejudice towards RWB because I'm Japanese, but this company seems to go their own way.

Cool flares

I see the orange car above may be related to this one. Who makes these flares? I like the riveted look too.

The windshield holds a clue.

Conceivable? How about a given! I've got the car to prove it. These cars are not symmetrical but you have the chance to fix that problem when welding the flares on with the wheels/tires in place. The lack of side-to-side symmetry is exposed when you fill up all the space with tire. Sure it's not madatory but man if you have the opportunity it'll make for a more perfect fit.

Torres, as a side note, u might want to look into having ur body guy lift the flares up and create a higher wheel well as the RWB cars, that is what I had Zuffenhaus do on my 936/76 bodywork. Just make sure to lower the rear.

Definitely been done that way, many times but why risk it? I've had a few different sets of 3pc 17's for my 930, and definitely some sets have looked better than the others due to the offset of the center combined with rim halves that come in 1/2 inch increments. It makes a subtle impact.

Thinking about it more, I think you guys are right. You can get the flare just the right distance from the wheel without a gap or spacers.

After I posted this I Googled RWB and answered my own question. I figured they were just custom made by them...

Yes I am going to try my best to pull this off the RWB look. I think the biggest challenge is the front bumper. I will get some wheels first as suggested. Just not sure which ones yet. Need to do some shopping and pricing.

Gabe, that is good advice and I will ask my body guy to what you recommend. Hopefully he can pull it off.

Here's a link to RWB's site in Japan, it's in Japanese but you can poke around and see a lot.

RAUH-Welt Home page Japanese edition

My Japanese is so, so but I think a full body kit is almost $17K at current exchange rate.

OMG that is a nice find. Thanks!!! I will call better bodies today and see what they say.
That would be the easier route for sure. That car is pretty much what I am going for. I have not seen. In a cab I think it would be pretty sick indeed.
