Cast Fuchs..what size would you like to see made?

Pick your desired wheel size and application. Vote for as many sizes as you'd likely purchase.

The unlisted sizes are 17".

Moses is doing then...and they look like this is 7.5 and 9 x 17s which are sizes already being done for the SC/Carrera and big brakes.

I want 9' and 10' for my SC..... I know, it will be a little more custom than most SC's.

As a mass produced wheel I think the 7.5/9.0 sizes planned are the best course. Easy fit equals happy customers. These are the sizes I run on the track and have no complaints.

Cheers

7.5 and 9s are fine, but need 50-55 offset and brake clearance for 993.

I'll buy the original 7.5 and 9 x 17s that Mosers will be offerening myself but they aren't the most tire you can stuff under an SC/Carrera, 8 and 10 is.

Slider you'll never get a set of 9 and 10s under an SC fender but it is a good thought. The 10 can be tight in the back but the 9 is really too big up front.

Even though you can't get the street tires that fill them out correctly any more a set of 8/9 15s look cool and be fun with sticky rubber!

9's won't go under a narrow body but an 8" will with some work.

Jeff might be because you run BBS which are 7.5 and 9 Fikse's are typically 7.5 or 8 and 9 or 9.5s depending on when you bought them and also work fine with zero fitment problems.

Jon sounds like Moses has already solved the brake clearance issues on the original 7.5/9s. He is using the Fikse on his car as a model. If so, there will be no clearance issues.

Actually I build my wheels to my own specs for offset and clearance and I faxed this info to Moses to use for brake clearance (brembo GTP)

Cheers

If the first sets go over well, wider wheels (10", 11") are a very real possibility.

Who says early offset Fikses would clear brakes on a late offset car? On early offset cars, the caliper is substantially behind the hub--very little of it protrudes past the wheel mounting face. On late offset cars, much more of the caliper is outboard of the wheel mounting face.

Also, going from early offset to late will require moving the entire center more than an inch within the barrel. Not trivial either.

I have no idea if these will fit early cars. They are designed to fit SC/Carrera's without spacers or rolling fenders. Hopefully will fit over any brakes youe SC/Carrera has. Will they fit other applications? Not sure, but they should.

SC/Carreras ARE early cars. The offsets/brakes changed in '89 for ABS. Early cars have 10-25mm offsets, late cars have 50-65mm offsets.

In front, 7.5" is the "safe" width but I run/ran 8" Ruf and Fikse on my Carrera. I'd buy 8&9x17 if I was shopping for wheels.

rdane,

I have run 8's & 9.5's on my SC the way it is. I plan on building my car into an F-prepared PCA car so a little fender flaring (massaging) is permitted within the rules. That's how I plan on running 9's & 10's.

To get 9s on the front you are going to have to remove the fenders

(or add flares or get turbo fenders)

With the right inboard offset, a 9" wheel on the front would stick out past the fender lip on an SC almost an inch.

What about a 911R offset for us really early narrow cars?

jaydubya,

I have a buddy who is a body & paint guy and we are going to run a baseball bat under the fenders to stretch the metal and then hammer and dollie the correct shape back in to gain the 3/4 inch that I need. The other 1/4 inch that is needed was gained when I upgraded my brakes (993) and the hubs that I used moved the offset in a 1/4 inch.

I have run 245's on the front without rubbing already, and I am just trying to get a 255 on a 9 inch wheel....
