7" Fuchs Wheels

I have a completely stock '73 911E and am considering going to 7" wheels, either all around, or rear only. It's strictly for appearance sake. I don't track the car. What might be any likeky negative effects on handling, clearance, steering effort, etc?

I have 6x15 Fuchs that I'm having restored. I'd like to have them painted to look like the 4.5x15s that came on a '67 S.

I have a set of 6x15 Fuchs that I'm having restored.  I'd like to have them painted to look like the 4.5x15s that came on a '67 S. I have a picture of the wheels on the 1967 911S at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart that shows the small black areas inside the spokes near the lug nuts with the tops of the spokes and the rims appearing to be highly polished.  The other areas appear to be either painted grey or are left with a matte finish on the alloy.  If it is paint, can you give me the color code?  Thank you.



What are the best tires for a 1971 911T targa?

Also curious if I can buy wider tires for the rear tires (only)?  If so, what size and brand are best?  Thank you, Rob

Cookie Cutter Lug Nuts

Previous owner painted my original cookie cutters black, stripped the paint but can find nothing on the lug nuts (alloy). Were the lug nuts black, anodized or natural aluminum? 


Fuch alloy lug nuts

I'm having my Fuchs wheels restored, and have noticed that the alloy lug nuts need to also be addressed. Would it be best to powder coat,or paint? Also what would be best for the screen, a matte or satin?

fuch style for 70' T

My 1970 T has the original spare wheel and tire, the style is known as "Deep" where the lip of the wheel is 2" from the face of the center. I am searching for four more of the same stly but I see three styles of FUCH out there:

1. "R" style which are deep but 7" wide, my cardex says the wheels were 6" wide when new

2. non deeep wheels, there are many for sale 

3. wheels which state they are with "hearts" and without 

Which are the exact match?

Must they be 1970 to be correct? What if the stamp is too weak to read the date? 

Thank you!

1969 911T Tires

 Getting replacement 185HR14 Vredestein tires for my 1969 911T with Fuchs Wheels. Can I mount these tires without tubes? (Currently have tubes installed with same size Michelin xas.)
