Trying to determine what rims/wheels would have been on 1984 944 when new.

The option codes are:

C02 158 404 418 425 431 454 650

The wheels on the car are period correct but not Porsche OEM.

They are staggered 3-piece Epsilon Southern Ways Mesh wheels - polished lip and gold mesh centers.

Need new tires

Model: 944, Year:1983, Mileage:47000, Type of use:Street use only
I have owned my 1983 944 since new. I have 15 inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels. The rear wheels are wider than the front wheels. I think the front wheels are 7 J X 15 and I think the rears are 8 J X 15 but I am not sure. My car came with the N69 option group. I have the original window sticker but it does not give me any specific information about wheel size. Can you please help me to determine the wheel size and what tire size I need to replace the OEM tires? Thanks! Jim Woods

I want to put a set of larger wheels on my car but don't really know what will fit. Are there wheels from different models that would work? I would really like a set of BBS wheels but thats not in budget this year. Any advice would be great.Thanks in advance.Tom Woods
