I think Nurburger is correct in that most of the shots appear to be photoshopped on that site. My personal opinion is this style wheel loses its appeal if too large with not enough lip and tire sidewall. 17" on C2S is my preference ( and I am biased).

For me, The sharp geometric shapes and hard angles of those don't seem to fit with the smoothness of the 993.

It's all in the proportions from the diameter of the wheel paddles, width of the tire, along with the width and depth of the surrounding rim. With my 82SC having the 9" rears with 8" fronts seemed to have the ideal look and more recently in the Singer 911. IMHO the 19" completely loses those proportions.

Saw a 997 4S with the 18's on it recently, the black centers with silver outer ring looked great on a white car with black carrera script. They look nice on the Boxster on their website and very nice on the 997 Speedster, but hard to beat the hollow spoke factory wheels for the 993, especially on the turbo body cars. For a classic look the 17" CUP II's would look better on a 993 IMHO.

These photos are lifted from another thread. They are a set of Zuffenhaus 17" Fuchs style, 993 fitment in RSR finish.

FYI - all of the 993 pics (and most others) are photoshopped...
They are two different entities now. You can contact Jeff for more info; he's a sponsor here.

- and have been for a few years now, but you can still get Zuffenhaus wheels (now even for 993, obviously) from either us, Jeff, or your local Fikse dealer - whichever is most convenient.

Are those 17's readily available now in the rsr finish? Are the three vendors selling the same product at the same (or similar) price?

The Zuffenhaus wheels are manufactured by Fikse and are available from Fikse dealers of which Jeff is one. Price would be the same. Some of the custom fitments and finishes are thru Zuffenhaus. Wheels are being produced each month so delivery depends on order date relative to production run date plus schedule for finish. RSR finish is done by Harvey Weidman and dependent on his schedule. Keith at Zuffenhaus can provide current delivery time.

its best to speak to Jeff directly regarding pricing - it depends on application, lip style, and finish - he'll need to know those details.
