7 & 9 X 16 Fuchs fitted (with pics.)

I have just fitted my 7 & 9 X 16 Fuchs and here they are in an MSN Album.

They are various angles front and rear of the old 6 & 7 and then a couple of how the 7 & 9 fill those arches.

It needs lowering, so not there yet with the look. What ride height should I be looking for - I want to keep my teeth and we do have potholes on these here roads ? Rear currently 25.5" but not clear on the front as my drive is not level.

What tyre pressures should I now be running given the new wheel / tyre combo - currently set to 2 bar front and 2.5 bar rear - car feels a little 'floating' on the motorway at this.

Cheers for now.

MSN Album

My car is 25" F and 24.5" rear. My tire pressure is about 32 F and 34 rear. New tire can feel floaty for a while.

Pretty much the same setup I have on my SC. 225s on 7s, 245s on 9s. Also 22mm front, 28mm rear torsion bars. Had to roll the front fender lips for fitment. 225s rubbed real bad with stock TBs. Currently running Toyo RA1s on track and Yokohama Intermediates for rains

David,

I am running 205 & 245 so hope to not get any rubbing issues.

Am looking for 24" or 24.5" at the rear (one finger gap between arch and tyre top !).

My favorite wheel set up for that period car - always a winner
BTW - never had any rubbing issues on a orig. 76 S I had with Fuchs & 225 in front
