Yes, I vote you get more period correct wheels! Sorry on the ask for help. I could do a butcher job in a photoshop effort but heading out shortly help a buddy with his VW bus. Best to wait for the true pros anyway.

Well, I`d personally go with Cups. Sleek design of the car suts a bit better sleek design of the cups. But hey, when everyone backdates I`m updating )

Personal taste of course. But I think it would look stunning with black centers - not petals, and the wing gone.

I have been using a 964 cab for many years now , and my biggest gamble when modifying it was adding a rear wing .
As itís hard to see the full effect by looking at pictures or cars at shows and I knew nobody who had a wing on a cab that I could spend a good amount of time looking at , It was a VERY expensive gamble .
I now prefer them with a wing .
With the roof down , they have a big-old-ass that looks worse on a narrow bodied car like mine is .
The wing helps calm this aspect down , so from a side view prospective alone it is worth it .
I used a turbo wing , that doesnít appear to stick out as far due to the extra girth underneath it .
From the back it helps marginally , and from the front you donít even see it .

If anything , Iíd lose the Et head ....
But in all honesty , I donít think that car will ever look ďsubtleĒ ...

I like both. Fuchs give a nice retro look but the 3p cups are period correct for 964 body.

Thanks I like them both the problem is anything I put in will have to either be made or me search out pieces. I do like the photo shop cups. Kevin

996 turbo wheels would look nice on your car imo as well.

I'm a big Fuchs guy, but they really do not work on your car.

+1 on the cups.
