Here's a guy who uses his 993 and has modded it to his own spec. Fair play...

Much too "slammed" for my liking and low profile tyres are the work of the devil ....... also not too sure about the wheels but I do like "deep dish" ....... as you said Tobes ....... fair dues to the fella ....... Smile

The deep dish split rims I'm selling are 11" wide rear and sit perfectly on a widebody. I think it's a cool look but his is too low for sensible normal use in the UK. I wouldn't even be able to leave the end of our street as the main road has speedbumps!

Yeah, too low for me to practically use either. I come precious close to grounding the nose when I reverse out of the garage and I'm at standard-ish height.

Quite fancy some 18" Fuchs action though...

I like it. And if I lived in Miami it might be the kind of thing I'd drive. It's a broad church Porsche ownership and it'd be dull if we all liked the same things. thumbsup

Very cool Cool . Some nice touches and the rear is so clean without the Carrera Script and Wiper.

A few extra mm in the ride height and it would be very nice.

I think the Fuchs wheels look good too, although the ones with the row of small bolts look a bit busy.

Wouldn't be very pleasant on UK roads or anywhere with fast bends, speed bumps, potholes etc. Probaly handles like a bowl of snot.

Just about pulls it off but would not work as a daily in the UK. When the wheels start to looked slanted due to camber needed to stop rubbing it starts to look a bit too cartoonish to me but this one just gets away with it Thumb

Too low for me but otherwise very nice.

I love silver petal Fuchs and I love 993s but I wasn't sure that the combination of the two would work.........but having seen that, it's seriously tempting. Scratch Chin

Are they available in a suitable fitment for the 993 does anyone know? I've seen the custom made set for sale in the wheel section and the ones in the link were custom made too. Does that mean that 'off the shelf' Fuchs for the 993 are a non-starter?

Yep... available in 993 fitment here:
http://www.fuchsfelge.de/index.php?id=190&L=1

Their website lists JZM as their UK dealer:

I'm not 100% sure the old skool fuchs look suits the 993 but good to see individuality regardless thumbsup.

They should have chopped out the 'suicide savannah' interior before tackling the outside what Plus too low that you'd have some concerns over your sac grating without good support nooo

No, no no. You neeed the Magnus Walker Outlaw Fuch-type offering. Better on the 964 if you ask me.

Wheels are tricksy things on the 993. Not quite retro enough to back date and not new enough for the really modern stuff. Suppose that's why most opt for the twists (love that wheel).

Never been a fan of the MW Outlaw Fuchs style but yes they suit the 964 better than the 993.

Got to be Speedlines or BBS on a 993 for the WOW factor IMO, although I am quite partial to a set of Gemballa Le Mans or MY02's providing the car is dropped a little. Cool

BBS RS on a WB for some further inspiration...

I've been a real wheel whore in the past but BBS have never been my favourite. LM's are OK but often have a positive offset on the front which just looks wierd IMHO.

The ones above I just think look ugly nooo
