GTO,

Nothing like deep-dish wheels on Porsches! They define the fat-hips of the 911 very well! The deeper the better!

Here are a few pictures of one of the best Fuchs I've seen on a classic Porsche! This is an early '90s (1992) Porsche 964 Type 911 Carrera RS wearing some tasty Fuchs!

Yup! The ride height has been dropped.

And fantastic post, Ayan.

The Volga looks dastardly! That's the right word for it. Members of the Russian Mafia, armed to the tee and posing with the V12 Volga would look just about right!

EDIT: (With reference to the post below) Thanks Nikhil! I completely agree!

Absolutely FANTASTIC! No modern Porsche looks as good as this particular model.

This is by far the best looking Porsche I've seen recently.

Since we are talking of wheels bestowing the car with character, I have to put up the Merc S Class. These wheels have muscle, but they also wear the air of class that is the W126 S Class. Good combination, wot?

that right there is sin on wheels my friend!! now i realize why you are madly in love with porsches!! any clue how much such a car would cost me??


jokes apart, some manufacturers put in a lot of effort in creating a spankingly good set of wheels!! some of them have a very intricate design and a lot of attention to detail. here are some which i thought fell into such a category.
Cheers!!

I love this thread and I'd like to keep it alive!

The Golf GTi looks great when you slap on a set of OZ Superleggeras!

And of course, nothing looks better on a Mini (or even a 2nd generation '70s Camaro) than Minilites!
