Fuchs in 944Spec

Recommended Posts

Guys, am I correct in that I cannot run Fuchs in the 944Spec class? Just confirming before I sell them and buy phone dials.

 

Thanks,

Dustin

That is correct, Fuchs arent legal. It does allow for many of our class members to make some money off aquired cars as these fetch a premium compared to the legal wheels we can run. Early/late offset phone dials and cookie cutters only.

Yeah, figure it will help cover the cost of the tires. Do the late offset phone dials fit onto a '83 944 without any spacers or modifications do you know?

 

Thanks,

Dustin - welcome!

 

Late offset wheels will fit, and are legal on an early offset car like your '83. I've seen it done in an emergency situation. However, your car will look goofy, and give up over 2" of track width. You can either get 30mm spacers, or better yet, find the correct early offset Cookie Cutters, or Phone Dial wheels. They are readily available. Try http://www.car-part.com,http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-924-944-968-used-parts-sale-wanted/, http://www.apartabove.com, Craigslist, Ebay, or other sources to find a set. Expect to pay around $200-$250 for a straight (if not cosmetically perfect) set.

I've got some early offset phone dial wheels that I haven't listed for sale yet. Shoot me a message if you can't find cookie cutters or want to have a second set.

 

Cheers,

Ryan

Awesome thanks. I'll send you a PM. Any idea if the rule allow them to be powder coated black?

Just curious.

No problem with painting, or powder coating wheels.
