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.

Those are the wheels for sale, in that thread. I have the front flares too, if you are interested.

Better Bodies? No thanks, since I had a bad experience with them.

Hope your luck (and product) is better.

Was it poor quality or was it customer service?

Both. The parts came broken, cracked and needed massive amounts of work to make right. Now, I know fiberglass parts need work, but they shouldn't come broken and cracked. I paid to ship to me, ship back to them and a restock fee. And they only take cash, no credit cards, so that says something.

Others have had better luck, but they do have a history.

Thanks, I will be cautious. I spoke with them this morning and sent some pics of that car with the bolt on flares and they are looking into it.

Steve, thanks for the phone call, always enjoy talking about wheels. Been giving it more thought and came up with a possible solution. I found a pair of very nice 7" inner rims that could be polished and used as outer rims on the rear. If I built with a 5.75 - it would be a 13" wheel. In the picture I only had a 6.75 inner so it actually shows a 13.75" rear wheel and in the front I have a pair of 3.75" outer rims and only again have a 6.75" inner, but could build with a 5.25" inner and you would have that magic 9" front wheel. Deep offset to be sure, might really be the look you want. Jim

Planning on power assist steering? Also, how do you think the car is going to track with that front offset?

I have built 10 & 12's for a 993 TT that was built into a GT2 with the wide bolt on fender flares. Jim jdorociak@gmail.com

I've got 9 & 11 x 18's on my 930 with a very small Momo steering wheel. Steering is not a problem and would be easier with a stock or similar steering wheel I think.

My only regret was keeping the spacer on the rear wheels. Removing that and getting a deeper look would have looked much better.

Wow a small baby could fit in that lip. The wheels look great. I really like the Brombacher wheel as well. Tough decisions ahead.
