    Awesome mate! So much better than something you're scared to flog.

    Would make a cool 74 IROC/3.0RS rep one day. Enjoy.

    ^^^ Cheers. Would agree. Doesnt look too bad as it is but a backdate (or in this case I guess just back to its original era) could always be an option. A mate sent em this pic. Bronze work wheels could be a good thing....

    you too can look like Larry Kosilla! although i think he changed his wheels to black Design 90s.. :/

    I'd imagine those Ruf wheels won't be hard to sell

    See how those bronze wheels & tyres fill the guards? Yeah it needs that offset and it will look awesome.

    Edit: other ideas

    Damn that RS bodykit looks the goods. I'm starting to get dangerous thoughts about early model Porsches. Thoughts that could get me divorced...

    yes, nice! I was tracking with a very similar car last weekend.

    Good luck with the purchase and I also vote for some more "race" inspired wheels.

    I reckon the existing wheels would look fine..... with a 10cm spacer. Similar.



    or 10cm more dish....

    Thanks for all the wheel input. Plan will be to keep the RUF wheels and put some track rubber on them, and then go baller spec road wheels. Like the tip on spacers though. That flush fit seems to make all the difference.

    Stay tuned mr rust aka fluffy front bum, a road trip may be required.

    If the Ruf wheels are 3pc I'd see if Barrel Bros could rebarrel them wider.

    Excuse my ignorance, I'm just starting this bad habit of Porsche interest. With these widebody deals is it a kit that's been put on? as in the whole rear quarter?
    If in doubt, flat out!

    If you lads do a road trip you’re more than welcome to camp the night at place on the way down. Great way to get to know a car.
    I just got my new Simmons barrels in the mail today.

    Edit: You know they are not RUF wheels on that thing right?

    Excellent mate! Looks tops.
    I'm waiting to see if a train spotter will buy mine before I modify it, but yours is inspirational.

    Erm,

    Well Uncle I had thought they were until you said that. I guess the RUF centre cap led me astray.



    But now you mention it, I have only really seen this style RUF wheel.

    Ruf doesn't make wheels anyway, speedline does.

    So if they're speedlines it's a good chance they are 'Ruf's - there is another slightly different version of that bottom wheel too

    LoL just to get ultra nerd the example of the RUF wheel you posted is actually a copy of the RUF wheel lol. You can tell it's a copy as it has a stepped lip. The factory RUF wheels are made by Speedline and have no step. Either way they are total pron and I must have a set.
    It's like wheel inception!
