Nothing like a set of new wheels!

Got these gorgeous Fuchs! 7&8's they were taken off an 87 soon after new and stored in a dark basement. First time they've seen daylight in over 20yrs. the orig p7's still look like the day they were put on. What an improvement over the bbs..!
needless to say I'm stoked!

absolutely gorgeous!

I don't think those P7s are safe to drive on though.

Tks! colour is Crystal green.. the tyres will be coming off shortly.. Although the rubber looks great (no uv exposure or cracking) I just couldn't wait to see the car with the wheels on.
(duck tail next!)

The car looks fantastic. Those Fuchs really set it off.

Those really transformed the car. The BBS looked good but the Fuchs look great!!

You might want to try advertising the tires for someone in the concourse crowd.

For a "show" car that doesn't get driven they would be just fine. Sad, but they aare out there.

The wheels look terrific!
Too bad about the duck tail. Your car is perfect as is.

The color of those wheels raises a question:
Were aluminum lug nuts all black, or did they ever color them to match the wheels?

The Fuch's are great but I think the old school BBS wheels look better.

Fuchs are just the right look for a 911 / 930, especially the impact bumper years.

And a duck tail will look nice... not that it doesn't look good now.

I look forward to future pics.
