Too late, I sold them. I just don't give a Fuch anymore. Wait, are turbo s wheels made by Fuch? In that case I would give a Fuch. Maybe even a flying Fuch.

Bob, that's an extremely sweet looking 86!

I'm biased but I do like polished Fuchs, full or partial. Besides the Fuchs, I have a set of cookie cutter track wheels with black centers and highly polished lip that really look nice, IMO.

Damn, but those are "toight".

I would most definitely like to get a set of 16" Fuchs for my 87 944S... black centers, polished lips naturally. Someone here recently posted pics of his anthracite 944 with fully polished Fuchs... oh my sweet Jebus, but that was a stunning car. I don't think the full polish job would look right on Guards Red, though.

I've heard that 87-vintage 911 Fuchs would be a straight fit with no spacer necessary on the late model 944s... is this correct?

109er,

There was a Fuch-in sizing/Fit matrix posted somewhere.
Basically, it showed what fits what and when spacers/adapters were required. May have been on Rennlist...


UconnTim,

Awesome looking, simply awesome. The blk Fuchs against the Guards Red is a stunning combo.

Bertmann,

Thanks, the car is a 15 footer...paint looks good from 15' away and after a root beers...


Debating lowering the rear...as I mentioned before, as its a warm day today, the increased air flow associated with the addition of the un-original hood, is keeping the cab at a pleasant temp. This was probably the best thing that I could have done to the car...the new airflow passes over and around the exhaust...everything is much cooler...

109er, unfortunately, I don't think you can use Fuchs on an 87... Wrong offset.

COLDBASS,

I covet that 931 hood! However, the scoop won't clear my strut brace.... but, installing a 931 vented header panel has helped my 84 run a lot cooler here in the Texas heat. Also, I think these cars really need the lowered rear ride height. Go for it.

FWIW, here are some pics of an 84 w/polished 16" 911 Fuchs.

I had these 15'' paddles on my '83 for several years. But I liked these 16'' 7's and 8's much better.

singpilot,

The 16 x 8 rears seem to fill up the fender better than my
16 x 9s???

My fronts are 16 x 7 (951 version)...

No ******* spacers on those. They are the 944 offset. In fact the right side has marks on them from touching the well, but just marks.

Nice cars....


Bertmann,

Tell me the details on the installation of the 931 vented head panel. I found one today, however, its spot welded (no problem I have a cordless sawzall) how hard was the installation?

Bob
