Nabeel,
I have been searching to see what the colour-coded wheels look like on a Kalahari beige 944, now I know- Was thinking of polishing whole wheel but now know colour code spoked portion is way to go- Difference is mine is cook(i)ed not fuched and mine is Pewter, almost same as the beige.Yours looks great.

Beautiful...simply beautiful...all color schemes enhance the look.

Anyone else besides me running 16 x 9s on the rear?
Curious as to what is the largest tire that can be fitted...

Bob

You know, I put that I had 7's and 8's on mine. That was the 911.

The 944 does have 8's and 9's. The rear 245/45's just barely touch on extreme right hand turns. I mean there is a rub mark, that's it; only on the outside of the RR tire.

dkilla, of course i don't hate you.

I DESPISE you. Just kidding.

I am envious - those are the exact wheels in the exact size that I want. How did you get them?

None. No rubbing even during hard cornering...I want to lower the rear however maybe a set of coilovers would be a better method...still thinkin that one thru...


BTW - The Llama does not ride in the 944 it was too much trouble taking out the passenger seat and sunroof everytime we went to the Dairy Queen for a Frosty Royale...

CJFusco the wheels were on the car wen i got it.....pretty lucky aye. Seeing that this is my first car and having the initial ambition to modify it, i did come close to change the wheels. But i have grown out of my stupidity and they aint goin no where.
