Can you still find new MM Cup 1 wheels?

Hi,

I looked around and cannot find a source that sells Mille Miglia Cup 1 replica wheels in the US? It is a thing of the past?

Thanks!

You can buy them through fvd usa. There are a few different versions that mm has produced over the years. The rim edge has a slight bevel on some of their versions and not on others. Check the fvd photos closely if you’re trying to match one that you already have.

Thanks Nick, that's what I was looking for. They don't seem to have the original 7/8 size for the narrow 964 though.

The 7.5” et52 and 9” et47 set is a great combo for narrow body 964. The usual tire setup is 225/45/17 front and 255/40/17 rear. You can get a little rub in the front on full lock, but a 3-5mm spacer will fix that. The rears can be left alone or spaced out by 15mm+, depending on camber, if you like. Be aware that spacers bigger than 6mm require longer lugs.

I wish these wheels were lighter, but they’re not much worse than the factory cup 1 wheels and they’re lighter than the 17” ruf varieties.

Im running the 17x7.5 and 17x9 mm cup1 reps with 225/45 and 255/40 tires. The car is lowered and doesnt rub one bit.

Great wheel. I couldnt afford the real 17x7/17x9 porsche set. Id rather spend it on BBS wheels.



Good luck on hunting. Im they pop up used once in awhile in the classifed section.

Check the inner wheel well behind the strut. I would be amazed if you're not rubbing. But maybe those front tires run narrow. Porsche issued a service bulletin for 17" wheels which requires a thicker steering rack stop to reduce the steering angle. Though you don't really need the thicker stops if you use a 5mm spacer.

I ended up going for a set of used OEM cups. I paid $2000 and they are in good conditions, that might be a useful reference point for someone looking.

They are 17" and the car is at OEM US height (which is normal but ... well, way too high).

Good eye, that does look really good/clean.

TJ- yes the center bar is deleted. Kinda copied Magnus Walker's taste on his 964.
