Does anyone know if they make Fuch's for a 356?
I just saw a pic of a 356 in the October Foglight and they looked fantastic. I see wheels on Ebay and I think most won't work on a 356B???

Fuchs can be used on 356's but only with disc brakes. Fuchs were available on early 911's and 912's but not on 356's.

There is a Fuchs style wheel for the large wide 5 bolt pattern made for VW's. It is an aftermarket rim and not sure how well it would fit on a 356 but it could be an option. There are a few options in finish and backspacing. Here are a couple of the links.

They made fake ones in a wide 5 pattern (drum brake), I had some on an A Coupe once.

AWE made them 40 years ago. You might find some, but inspect them carefully, they are cast aluminum and by now may be prone to cracks and corrosion.
