944 Fuchs

Post by Clatter » Wed Sep 13, 2017 2:22 pm

So,
With the apparent demise of Germanlook.net.. :(

I was just looking for info that is now gone.. :cry:

Lanner had given me the part numbers for those 16" Fuchs that were specific to the 944.

They started with a 951 part# IIRC?

Needed to get proper clearances for the 4-pot 944T brake calipers, apparently..

I do know that the 901-part-numbered 16" Fuchs from a 911 -IE 911SC- won't fit because of offset issues..

Anyone got the info for me?

Please and thanks.

Just thinking out loud, you can't use them with 3 or 5mm wheel spacers? The factory 924T rims (they were 928S) I pulled and used on my bug had super long studs on the rears and like 25.4mm spacers IIRC.

It depends on your car, T3s and Supers and Ghias want more offset.

I got 245/50-16s on 8" ET52.3 manholes under my square with the original arms and single blade spring plates with only rolling the fenders and some careful clearance at the trailing arm and bump stops. (The fronts are 6" ET 52.3 with 1" spacers, 205-55s)

With the early 944 T arms and no spacers, I could probably run 265s on 9s out back with the later ET65 offset. (fenders were flared, but tons of room to the trailing arm/spring plate)
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

Thanks, guys.
Glad to see you here, Lanner.
Knew that the last of the German Look faithful would end up here..
