These are sweet but also boat anchors for a 944. Maybe for a 951 or 968 would be ok. I should know because I have tried just about every wheel combination on a 944 NA. For performance on handling and acceleration, a set of 15x7 Cookie Cutters with 225/50/15 tires would be optimum but you will have to have at least -1.5 degrees of negative camber front and rear if you lower your car so the tires still stay inside the wheel wells.

Yeah,
18s would remove bulk of the 140hp an NA would make. I'm going with 16in aluminum BBS rims, 18lbs a pop

As we all know, or should know, the 944 looks and handles better than it performs............ Yeah cookies may get you another 1/2 second on the track but they look like shi** But to make it grip and look awesome this is the way to go. I too have had numerous 944's with every possible wheel combo. I'll sacrifice minimal hp to look good. Thanks for your input....
