Euromeister Wheels

Greetings,

Does anyone have experience with the Euromeister "Alloy Replica" wheels. These are the wheels that look like Fuchs. As the information clearly states,
these are not forged wheels, but rather casted. For the person who's using
their 911 for street use and an occasion DE event (very rare, just to learn how to drive the car), is this a suitable replacement?

Thank.

I'd look into "rota fox" aka moses fuchs before the euromeister version. (the search button is your friend) That said if you are DE'ing the car - I would look for some original fuchs or bbs wheels for the track.

I presently have 16x7 and 16x8 Fuchs on my car. Unfortunately they're chromed and need to be redone. Before I send them out to Al Reid, I wanted to explore other options. When I did a "search" on Euromeister wheels, only 4 threads were returned and none of them discussed these wheels in any great detail. I'd still like to hear from anyone who has purchased these wheels, in order to hear their reviews. This being said, I'd like to hear from people who have the Mota or Moses Fuchs for their opinions.

Thanks again.

don't the Rota fuch replica only come in a 17 inch wheel. Ie 15 or 16's are not a option.

There is a recent thread on this started by me. They are made in china, supposed to be TUV approved and pressure cast. If those things are true then they are the way to go. BUT they are only 16s And they are . . . . . made in China. I have some 9s about to go on my car. Hopefully all will be ok. BTW not a track car.

Great thread - my chomed fuchs need redoing too, ebay has the Euromasters for $230 16x8 and $219 for 16x7's.

Anyone here actually go for the Euromasters/have any results of the experience to share?

Thanks
-Todd

If I read that right, that would be $900 for a set. You could almost get a set of real Fuchs for that.

Do not worrk about taking your real fuchs to the track, they will be ok! No curbs to rash either.

Juts get some sticky street trires like the Dunlop Direzza or the Bridgestone RE 11 and go rip it up!

Look for tire availability before deciding what to do. Correct tires sizes are/have dwindling for 15's and 16's. My choice in going to the Rota's is due to wanting a larger selection of performance tires and a lot more rubber on the road. Tire availability will only get worse for those sizes.
The Rota's are not a lot more money than the Euromeister's and offer many more tire options.


Just a little more rubber on the road

The Fox wheels are a good value in 17"

These wheels are manufactured in China. I haven't heard any complaints about them yet, but parachutes, seat belts, life rafts, pacemakers, and wheels for the race track are all things I would personally prefer not to obtain from China.

I have 16X6 and 16X7 Fuchs now. Would like some 8's for the rear but can't seem to find Fuchs, and when i do they are more than I would like to spend. MY thought would be to sell the 6's move the 7 to the front and buy some 8's for the rear. Any problem using Fuch 7 in front and Euro 8's in back? Sorry for the hijack......

Starless,

If you polished the lips and repainted centers on both front and rear, you would probably be fine - some will disagree. I have not seen a set personally like this, but I know Tom (khamul02) did this and said they looked fine. I am sure he will chime in again.

I personally would send my 6's and 7's Fuchs to true design and have them make some 17" fuchs using my centers. Jim does good work.

Are you talking about the wheels you sell?
