Who here has 7x16 and 8x16 fuchs on their car?

I need pics, on a 944. I'm thinking of buying some but Im not sure if I want 16 inch fuchs or 17 inch something else. What do you guys think? My car is an 83, gemini grey metallic.
Thanks

I have them..and I would never replace them...there is no lighter 16" wheel on the market that I am aware of.

If you want to see how they look, check my profile

Forged Fuchs were real light for the 80's, but today they are about average for forged wheels. The stock 16x8's on my RX-7 are lighter than my 16x7 Fuchs.

Edit: I was mistaken, the Fuchs 7's are a bit lighter, but the 8's are a bit heavier.

Here is a shot with 16" 951 Fuchs. The front and rear both have 1/4" spacers behind them (front to clear the S4 calipers and the rear for aesthetics).

I land back in rainy LaLaLand tonight, and will send what sizes are on the car. They are not very radical.

Singpilot, I like those wheels, are they polished or chrome?
