Paint the centers black and they'll look like Fuchs from 5 feet away...

Nice snag- for 125 I'd jump on them too.

Actually I had it painted a Metallic Black Pearl, I am very happy with it, The plain old black just wasn't cutting it.

I'm not a huge fan of the size of the spokes but I really like how deep they are in the wheel (especially those rears). In my mind the pre-'87 offset wheels look orders of magnitude better than the later ones. Later wheels look too much like ones that you would put on a fwd car. I'm a child of the '80s, what can I say?

Love the way the rears look all dished out.

944's look good wide.

Definitely paint the centers black. Then, your car will look absolutely awesome! The deep dishes are nice.

Gearhead: the offsets are 23 front and 15 in the rear.

I am thinking about painting the centers either black or a really dark grey this winter, just not sure yet though
