What width / offset wheels are these 15s

This is a pic of the Repco Rallye Porsche Jurgen Barth drove in 1979.

Can any learned Pelican advise what size / width / offset these Fuchs would be ?? ... they are 15 inch diameter wheels.

They are probably 6" et 23. If your looking to fit fuchs on your 924 have a look over at 924.org

lots of guys running them on early 924's

Hmmm .... I thought there was some sort of fitment issue Re Fuchs on the 924.
What size Fuchs will fit w/o surgery involved ?
I picked up a 924S cheapish on eBay ...

6x15 or 6x16 ET36 911 Fuchs will fit a 924 and iirc they are the only ones that will fit without rubbing as the 924 normally takes ET52 offset wheels and Fuchs don’t come in that size. Here’s a picture I found with 16 Fuchs fitted.

IMHO Those rear 16s unfortunately don’t look right — seem to sit too far from the body.

That rally car definately has 15s on it ... and they seem to suit the car more.

What Fuchs fit w/o surgery and look as though they are the right wheels for the car ?

Yes I agree the 16 looks odd. I amended my post to include the 15 ET36 from the 911 but I dont have a picture for you.

87-88 requires late offset. You can mount them w flares etc. on the pre S cars, the set up fits early offset. I’m fairly certain that green one is an early car. I have an 87s as well. Have fuchs and cookies in the garage and tried them both. Ended up with 7” phone dials.

Yup — I’ve got some refinished, staggered 16 x 7 & 8 PD’s donated by a 951 .... however would probably prefer a Fuchs option ...
