Afternoon All,

Looking at 18" wheel options to fill the arches properly and really like the look of the black centred Fuchs. Two Qs

Does anyone have these?
What wheels do people have outside of the Turbo style wheels that they really like?

Cheers

Nick

RUF are quite cool, too. There's a set for sale in Porsche&911World classifieds.

Cargraphics 3 piece split rims look pretty good.

That's a cool website.

Not a massive fan of Ruf wheels tbh they always look too oversized for my palate

It's always amazed me that such a great Tuner like Ruf use boat anchors for the majority of their cars.
Great design, just too heavy.

Here's the ultimate 993 Wheel Thread that will scramble your brain with options: https://rennlist.com/forums/993-forum/234106-who-has-coolest-wheels-on-their-993-a.html

Speedline RS or Daytona & BBS Le Mans are hard to beat if going the split rim route and MY02 & Gemballa Le Mans for the single piece route IMO.

Nice. Will go through that thread.

Still think the Fuchs look pretty good https://rennlist.com/forums/attachments/993-forum/553066d1311120518-who-has-coolest-wheels-on-their-993-sam_0240.jpg

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.

Yeah I had always thought the same but I really like the 18s with the black centres. Will no doubt spend months pondering and then go for something completely different!

Is the sizing right for 993?


Edit - no I just checked!

I do have to say that it is hard not to like the Fuchs style on a 993, much as I agree they suit older models better.

I've always like the 997 MY02 wheels. They look pretty classic now and I think the 993 can wear them very well indeed. Plus easier to clean than pretty much any other wheel!

On paper the perfect wheel. Strong, manufactured by BBS for Porsche, Light, 18" for aesthetics and very easy to clean inside & out. Thumb

That's very interesting as I did not know they were fabricated by BBS. I like them even more! Not sure whether or not they are better looking than Twists?..

Here's a pic of mine.
Given the similarity of the shape, i don't really get the point about suiting older 911s better, but each to their own.
Also genuine fuchs are super light.

That looks sweet! Did you buy your car from JZM last year?

Had to Google them. To my uninitiated eye they look pretty similar to the wheels ChrisT70 is selling.
