Zuffenhaus Fuchs Availability

Apologies in advance if this has been previously answered, but does anyone know whether Zuffenhaus finally solved their production issues with the Fuchs/Copy 17" and 19" wheels in 930 9"and 11" (or 11.5)? I mean, does it still take years to get them? Also, if anyone knows, what's the price range? And are there any plans for our host to eventually retail them? Thanks.

I was on their list to contact and received in the last 2-3 months notification that they had worked out a production arrangement with Fikse/Kodiak, and that it was expected to solve the delivery issues.

I ignored it mostly because I already ordered other wheels...which happened to be Fikses

How long was the wait for the Fikses?

IIRC, I placed my order in late February early March and took delivery in late May, early June, so I think it was 10-12 weeks, or 3 months. I did order anodized finishes on both the inner wheel and outer barrels.

Wow I love that car and like those wheels better than fuchs anyway. I am biased but they really do look great.

Photos please!

I responded to their email about their new production arrangements and never received a reply back.

I got a set coming, I got from Jeff, I think it's been around 4 months now. they are being shipped this week. I'm not in too big of hurry right now; I'm in Afghanistan, again. So as long as I have the wheels before I redeploy I'm good. I hope to get some Autobahn (and "the 'Ring) driving in before I have to go back to the States next summer.
take care Frank

Thanks for the photos and info, Jacob. Very nice car, and I like those wheels. I may decide to go that way myself.

Just got a heads up about this thread. Still buried under work from business transition, product development, and long term projects that are coming to conclusion, so I' don't get the forum time I used to enjoy to knock around and chat 911. Hopefully soon.

In any event, and to the point of the thread, our new-style, Fikse produced product is shipping. We've delivered 3 sets to clients, and have 4 more sets shipping to Weidman's for finishing work today, since the product release in July. 3 more client orders are in production at the moment, including special fitment for DP 935 street and 993 C2S. This is IN ADDITION to Fikse's dealer orders (the V2 product is available through Fikse as well so you can spend your hard earned $ with your local guy)

All the data is on our blog/FB, so I won't tie up bandwidth here on the product details.

pdqcarrera - send me another email so I know what your email address is and I'll check to see if I received anything from you that might've gotten caught in a spam folder (might want to check yours also?) I've been answering a lot of questions and sending numbers of sales quotes out, and believed I caught all the inquiries, but anything is possible.

Jacob - the Fikses look great. Well done on fitment.

Thank you Keith, and glad to hear that the Fuchs replicas are flowing. The Zuff Fuchs were really my 1st choice, but I just couldn't wait any longer to get some properly fat azz rubber on my 930...thus it was somewhat ironic that only a month or so after placing my Fikse order, I got your email that you guys were partnering with non other than Fikse.

All that said, I am very happy with my choice of the FM-5 wheels. I think classic 5 spoke design is Fuch-like enough to look correct, and of course I specified finishes that match the look of the factory wheels...no full polish outer rims for me.

I'm probably done with wheels (for now), but if I find myself lusting after a 2nd set of "fatties" I will likely be looking you guys up.

OP sorry, but I gotta say to jwasbury: that is one super sweet looking 930, very clean.

Do you ever get any rubbing during a full lock turn on the street or track with 255/35x18 tires?
Also over driveway entrance humps and stuff like that while turning sharply?
thanks.

thanks...it looks cleaner in photos than in real life. its a driver and has "original patina" i.e. sandblasted front bumper and rocker panels. never fails to draw compliments or put a smile on my face. if it were too clean, i probably would feel bad driving it. for me, its perfect in "driver" condition.

i had to remove the big aluminium "bash" guard inside the passenger side front bumper that protects the oil cooler due to tire interference. There is a little rubbing of the front tire against the rubber chin spoiler bits that turn up towards the wheel wheels (basically the rubber part of the front valance). Its nominal, and only occurs at low speeds while entering or exiting my driveway, for example. At speed, on track, the wheels aren't turning at enough of an angle to be a problem. I ran the car at Monticello Motorclub's full course with this new wheel/tire set up, and that's a track with mucho elevation change and some tight turns (like a hairpin that I downshifted into 1st to drive out of)...no issues other than I almost lost the center caps because once you heat up these wheels from hard use of brakes, the stupid center caps just fall right off. Luckily I noticed this in the pits after my 1st session, so I took them all off and didn't lose any on the course.

Cool. btw, your car and wheels look really nice.
Porsche has had some of the coolest car colors, especially in the seventies and eightees.

I have 225/30x18 on 8.5" wide RH 3.6 rims in the front and 315/30x18 in back on 11" and my car understeers more than I like. I've wondered how wide you can go before any rubbing starts.
The oil cooler gaurd was gone before I got the car and it has a DP airdam so nothing there to rub tires either.

thanks!

Did you change the side the wipers rest on?

I remember the one headlight washer story. You really should move it to the other side to balance the weight distribution. That's costing you no less than eight seconds a lap. However, I guess you can see clearer with the driver's side light, so it all works out.

Did I say your car looks terrific?

All have a great holiday!

Take care!
