Default 1987 Porsche 911 with 17" Fuchs Wheels from GMP Performance

Fuchs wheels are quite the classics and with 17" and 18" offerings, there's even more fitment options available for even more models. GMP Performance test fit a set of black, 17 inch Fuchs wheels on a gorgeous 1987 911 and we wanted to share it with you.

On the front, we used a 17x8.0 ET52 wheel, teamed with a 21m spacer and matched with a 225/45x17 Michelin PS2N3 tire. For the rears was a 17x9.0 ET55 with 23mm spacers and 255/30x17 Michelins. With the car being lowered, both front and rear, we think the final effect worked fantastically.

Check out the pictures of the build below and let us know what you think. To see more on the build, click here. To see more on the Fuchs wheel, click here!

Wow i do really like those . I think 17s are about as big as I would want to go on a classic 911 . Are these wheels forged or cast ?

any idea of the weight of these wheels ?

edit ... sorry didnt see the link ... forged .. very nice indeed.

We were really happy with the look. It still maintains and OE look and feel but with a modernized twist. Let us know if you are interested in a set.

did you put 45's on the front with those larger rims to keep the front fenders from rubbing? did you have to roll the fenders?
