Default Forgeline FUC3 (Fuch look) wheels

Just received my new Forgeline FUC3 wheels. Ordered from Dave @ Wheel Enhacement. 19" with custom offsets. Really pleased with how they turned out. Porsche center caps on the way.

I think they look absolutely perfect. Much better than regular fuchs

They are very similar to the 50th Anniversary wheel, which I might have considered if they came in 19" wide body fitment, but they don't. Having had both, I think the Forgelines are actually better executed. The 50th Anniversary wheel has an indentation at the top of each spoke (where it meets the rim) which looks slightly off to my eyes. Also the custom offset meant I could dump the spacers I used to have.
Not any cheaper though

Very cool. Modern version of the old Fuchs design with the concave touch on the rears. And by the best or at least one of the top quality forged wheel makers out there. I have a different design by the same brand and will be a loyal customer going forward. They're expensive but the light weight, strength, finish and overall quality is unmatched imo. No affiliation.

very very nice look - glad forgeline is broadening their styling palette; they make some of the very best, toughest track wheels

Looks sweet, can you PM me the price you paid?

What offsets and wheel widths did you go with? Do they fit normal Porsche centercaps?

Also, you must have lowering springs, your Targa looks lower than mine.

Very cool and I really like the way the way the silver goes with the targa roof silver accent. Love my custom Forgelines too (in avatar pic).

Front 8.5x19" 56mm
Rear 11x19" 36mm
Had to pay extra for machining center to accept Porsche factory cap.
Fit same tires I had on my Turbo II wheels. Had spacers on those, so we adjusted the offsets on these to achieve the look.

And yes - I have Techart springs on my car.

Will pm - prepare for sticker shock!

High-quality forged wheels aren't cheap.

I'm guessing $6,500 for the wheels and another $500 or so for the custom center cap.

Very close. They were a little more with the finish options I chose.
Machining for center caps was only $45 per wheel.
