So, I'm continuing to wreck my car in the eyes of the Illuminati, but that's OK. It's only a car and it isn't for sale!

Having fitted the small RS aero kit, which I love, I'm finding I don't like the look of the Turbo wheels. Too contradictory - mixing RS and Turbo look :-/

I'm not making an RS Replica so I don't want RS wheels. Don't like them, either so they are ruled out.

Thus, I'm trying to find some replacements. The only certainty is that they'll be 18", so don't bother telling me that 17" is much more comfortable in sandals Wink

The options so far - new Fuchs at £1950 + vat. RUF wheels (pictured), second hand, for almost exactly the same price.

Then today I saw this car - and love the wheels: http://fueltank.cc/blog/volpatti-gt
They are Victor Equipment Zehn and are slightly cheaper (I think) than Fuch or RUF.

Thoughts?

The TechArt wheels that Clinchy had on his with the small RS kit looks good.

Can't find any pics at moment at Tony's were Photobucket and not displaying

For me, it has to be RUF or Fuchs - ideally with polished or frosted petals...

However, genuine Fuchs in 17" and up don't look quite right to me - there's something odd going on around the end of the spokes, compared to the original 15"/16" ones.

Have a look at Zuchs (https://www.zuffenhaus.us/tag/zuchs/) - made by Fikse (in Canada, not sure of a European distributor), and fitted to Singers. A properly scaled-up version of the original Fuchs design, with none of the clunkyness described above.

The simplicity of the Ruf wheel is pleasing to my eyes.

If money was no object, I'd go for the HRE R101 lightweights. Crazy lightweight wheels at crazy prices!

RUF for me, much nicer than the turbo twists.

How about a modern incarnation of the Fuchs. I have a freshly refurbished set of Staggered OEM MY02's that have been refurbished in Gloss Black with a very thin Silver Band around the rim.
The beauty of these is that they are strong (made by BBS) and very light, lighter than Hollow Spokes.

Shoot me a PM anytime if interested.

See pic of one attached.

What about 52 fifteen or whatever they are called by the urban outlaw himself Magnus Walker? Not keen on his cars, but think the wheels look great.

On a related note, does anyone know who manufactures Design911's Fuchs-a-likes?

At £799 a set they are obviously Cast and not Forged like the real deal and probably like most replica wheels made in the Far East. I'd assume the quality to be half decent for a company like Design911 to retail them.

There are a few Fuchs alternatives out there with varying quality.

Forged = Quality Thumb

Who's manufacture and what's the price of a staggered set of 18's?

Not keen on those Techarts though the ones pictured do look better than the ones I thought were the same wheel on http://www.wichers-porsche.com/onderdeel_categorie/wheels/ who have a decent used selection (I prefer the other 18" Techart on this site).

I do like the MY02 look but again, somehow I think it's wrong for my car (no idea - just a feeling).

Also tempted by 18" Sport Classic II, pictured below, which are £1250 on eBay. Think these are maybe better than the RUF?

I've only just noticed that the Fuchs are a fair bit lighter than the TT and the SC-II. Don't have the weight of the RUF, but they don't look light.

Fuch just jumped to the top of the list!
