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!


The RUF`s look great but aren`t light.

Available new for £3k

The only ones I'd have are Fuchs Tobe. The RUF wheels don't cut it. Nor do the others. The only question is black or silver petals on a dark car. I still think Ian could be persuaded to drive out there and bring some back. Fuchs. All the way.

Each to their own but I think Fuchs are best left to pre 89 G Series 911's.
The 964 & 993 suit a more modern or Motorsport orientated wheel IMO and there are some great wheels out there if you are prepared to step outside the box. Thumb

Check out these Forgeline GA3R's for example.

Those Forgeline GA3R are really cool...but very expensive! I would stick with the Victor Equipment Zehn if I go that way.

Do agree that Fuchs are a better natural fit on older models.

Toby, I think you should go for the Fuchs... and then when you get bored of them in 6 months time there will be a reasonably priced set of Fuchs for sale! Very Happy

All those other wheels look really aftermarket. Fuchs on a 993 look great imho. Remember there's a like wheel by Porsche for 991 and 997. It's an iconic design long linked to Porsche.

The others just look generic.

If I ever get the money to buy a 993, I'd like to have one with Gemballa Speedline wheels

Isn't that the point. Step outside the illuminati box and dare to be different. I'm a firm believer in personalising a car to MY taste and not what is perceived correct by the beard brigade. Very Happy

Agree! Don't quite suit a 993 or 964...
But to give Tobesetc an idea of them on a blue 993...





Also maybe consider Gemballa Le Mans? Then again they may be too similar to RS wheels, which you've decided you don't like anymore...





I vote BBS LMs Cool

Fuchs are never going to look quite right on a 993 with the wings IMHO.

Got to be BBS LMs or e88s?

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?

Like BBS LMs.....Like what your doing with the car....been making mine my own for years and enjoy it Thumb

I know you'd need to spend another £200 or so on a re-furb, but are these a decent deal? - Linky

Mods are appreciable if reversible.

IMHO Fuchs do not suit the 993, it's just the name that appeals Get Me Coat

If aftermarket / Porsche specific then Brombacher look good;

I suppose it depends on budget as it's as easy to spend a few hundred on a set of rims as it is to spend a few thousand.

Have a look at some of my faves:

Split Rims
BBS e50
BBS e88
Rotiform LH-R
BBS RS

Single Piece
Gemballa Le Mans (I have a staggered set if interested)
MY02's
OZ Alleggerita
Forgeline Monoblock GS1R

Good luck in your decision. Thumb

I'm not sure if they'll fit offset wise but these are cool -

https://www.total911.com/tag/fifteen52/

And I'm guessing these are the exact ones off the Total911 996, for sale here-

I love them and thought about buying them for my 996 but I don't think they'd suit the Aerokit route I'll be going down.

Cool wheels. Cool

Cool wheels. Cool


Offsets are too aggressive for a NB 993 unfortunately. Cool option though.
