Default Help Identifying this Wide Body Wheel

I stumbled across this pic on the internet, it was on a Porsche Club Great Britain site. Can anyone ID the wheels ... Braid BZ's? 18's? Also do you think the car has NB or WB trailing arms judging by the rear offset?

Tough to tell from that picture. The offset seems to imply narrow trailing arms, but the quality of the wide body conversion looks to high.

Possibly the Augment Wheel Company. They make custom widths and offsets of the FUCH inspired wheel.

They could be reproductions of Fuchs? Have a look at www.type911.co.uk. they have some 17 inch for sale in 7 and 9 inch widths.

There are so many possibilities, it is hard to tell from that single picture. My vote goes to Dynamic Speed.

Looks like Fikse with the optional flat lip. It is possible they are Rotas. Hard to tell, the pictures are quite small.

More pictures: http://www.911-retro-works.co.uk/50t...y_special.html

As for other options, here is the good, bad, and the ugly: Fuchs repros

That's it FrenchToast! Thank you for the link and yes most likely Fikse. I love the 'flat lip' section!
