And let's see it one more time...love your car!!. What size wheels and offsets are these? Was Fikse helpful in selecting the right size? The wheels/ tires look like they fill every inch of available space. Very nice job indeed.

Here is a picture of a front and rear I got from Jeff today. The wheels are on the way, but if anyone wants a picture of the wheels on the car it'll be seven months before I get home. I have a set of Kumho XS (315X35x17 and 255X40X17) waiting to be mounted.
Take care, Frank

Those look prrrrreeeeeeettttttty coool!

BTW, I had the chance to handle & weight them when still in experimental mode and were very, very light. Lots lighter than the Lindseys. Keith, I hope that's still the case.

Are they still bolted from the back?

Take care, Frank

Thanks for posting pics, however which version (early or late) and lip (standard/Fiske or soft/Fuch) are these? The dish doesn't look as deep as I expected, or is it just the photo angle?
Take care and come home safely Frank!

They are the soft Fuchs lip. My car is an '82 (no spacer on the front) the rear wheels require removal of the spacer and the front will just bolt right on.
since I have not seen the wheels in person ether I'm thinking it's the photo angle, I'll get my wife to take some pictures after the wheels arrive.
Thanks Frank

Details on the wheels
Front = 18" x 9" (2" outer rim, 7" inner rim)
Rear = 18" x 11" (4" outer rim, 7" inner - requires removal of factory spacer)

I worked directly with Fikse on the sizing. Alan Bayliss is the sales guy and he used to own a 930, so was very helpful.

Couple more photos
