These wheels are Panosport Racing.
They are now back to raw aluminum (aluminium).
The PO painted them black.

Norm, I am guessing these are 16" wheels? What tire size are you running? Any issues with rubbing, turning radius?

Thanks,
Mark

BWAs! 14x6.5. Italian manufacturer, similar design to the 4-lug wheel they made for Fiats.
Chiming in 3 years late to the party, I know.
I've got a full set, with center caps collecting dust cause I don't have a SWB 911 or a 356 yet.

Not too original, but always liked Fuchs windmills on anything from the early 60s to present. On my mild Outlaw '64 Karmann C Coupe.

Does that hub cap fit properly into the recess in the wheel, or it it sticking out from where it fits on a steel wheel?

I've always loved the look of Fuchs on a 356. What size wheels are those?

I'm restoring my '63, and for Christmas was given a set of EMPI wheel adaptors to be able to mount the Fuchs on drums. Specs say it's 1/2 inch offset. Check out the photos.

I'm hoping to run what ever was the stock size Fuchs from the late '60s. Are those 5 or 5.5 x 14? I also have a set of 6" off two '80s 911s that I'm told will work, but I want the look of the original Fuchs. Comments & Suggestions?

Thanks, Rye

Ryan, Sweet ride! Can you tell me about your fuel tank setup? Are you using a GT tank?
thanks, Elliot
