Question 15" Fuchs

I am looking at a set of 15" fuchs. They are currently on a 1986 car and are color matched (metallic brown) to that car. My question is, was there an option code for fuchs in 1986? The option codes appearing on the trunk sticker do not indicate a "sport package" or some other notion that they were OE for the vehicle. I want these wheels to be 1986 944 fuchs and not some transplant from a 911, etc. The car is sitting in a junkyard and the owner wants $300.00 for them. They need to be stripped and refinished, but no curb rash or major blemishes. Since they are on the car still I have not had the opportunity to check the part number (should be 911361020), but I just want some prelimanry input before I have the owner pull the vehicle from the yard. If they are in fact OE for a 1986 944, thoughts on the price and what about the option code? I have reviewed the option code provided at the Watercooler and no such luck. Thanks.

Part # 911361020

is a 911 part number. Congrats, you've got a 911 transplanted set of Fuchs

911361020

Same wheels on different cars. 914-6s had 911 part # wheels too.

$300 is a damn good price, but are they all straight and not bent, make that part of the deal, you need to take them somewhere to get them checked to see if they are straight and true.

Brando, I haven't purchased them yet, hence the questions. To follow up, while I am aware that the part number does start with 911, at anytime did the fuch wheels that came OE on 944's have 944 as the first three digits of the part number?

Nope!

Fuchs wheels were standard on 911's from i think 60's on to the 90s.

There's different sizes, variants and such. If you find a set of RSR 911 rims, HOLD ON TO THEM! They'll put your kids through college.

My 944 was ordered with the fuchs wheels as an option, does that mean they were factory supplied 911 wheels?

Brando,

Thanks for clearing up the part number issue.

Ferrara,

Do you know what the option code is for the Fuch's on your car, or is there any? Also, you wouldn't happen to know the part number on your wheels? Thanks.

On my window sticker it says 15" forged alloy wheels $1194.00. I don't see any code or number indicated on the paperwork. If the number is on the wheel it must be on the backside, I'll check next time it's in the air.

Ferrara_Racing: Pretty much. Because the bolt-pattern on the 944 and the 911 is the same, cookie cutter wheels were the 'generic' style on 944s and economy 911s of the time. Fuchs were an option on both (looking back and seeing 911s with coookie cutters).

Mambodave: Yes, part number is the way. I don't happen to know what the part number would be, though.

My car has the option code listed on the back for the forged Fuchs wheels. I never knew they may have a 911 part number though. They are 15 inch and color-matched to my car as well.
