Pictures please: show us your 914 wheels

Also, does anyone know which year 911 wheels fit on a 914 once converted to 5-bolt?

Assuming STOCK fenders:

5.5x14 (came w/ some 914-6's)
6x15
7x15s fit in front fairly easy. May need to massage rear fender lips to fit.

6x16s also fit
7x16s likely fit in front, but may need massaging in the rear.

205 width tires tend to be popular. If you fit a 7" you might go to a 225 width tire, but be careful about rubbing.

Some folks run cookie cutters, others the Fuchs, Steelies, still others have run Phone Dials and I have seen some 16" Boxster wheels, but spacers/adaptors are needed due to the different offsets.

You will find Porsche wheels defined as "early offset" (typically 23 mm) and "late offset" which are closer to 50mm. On the 944 in 1987 and later and the 911 (with the 964) came the change to "late offset" wheels.

Hope this helps!

wheels

so, as far as Fuchs go, 6 or 7 x 15 is the most modern Fuchs that will fit (labeling the 14" Fuchs as older & less-modern).

Have two sets of wheels I like in 4 lug, fuchs and pedrini. 15x5.5 limits you some though. I figure if I can drive it well enough that I need wider than that, I will treat myself to the whole 9 yards.

Offset explains why all those guys over at Germanlook.com have those twists on their Super Beetles, or I have seen a lot anyway.

Wheels.

Mark,

Thanks! You want to be real careful with the fitment though, it seems like each one of these cars is different. i have about a fingers worth of clearance in the front, and a bout a dark public hairs worth of space in the back, and i mean it, there is zero room in the back. If my tire pressure goes low, i am rubbing fender in the rear! Good luck and i hope you get it worked out the way you want.

Well, with the inner edge of the fender metal rolled in, I have about 3/16" on each side: I thought I was pushing it.

Unusual color for a 944, I miss my old 951's.

I'm looking for a tired 2.0 EFI to rebuild for my 914: anyone have anything??
