Fuchs Sp1 on 2003 C4 Cab

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I sure like the look of the Fuch wheels I saw in Excellence magazine.

Question: does anyone have any experience with theses new wheels? I am entertaining the thought of new wheels for my 03 C4 Cab.

Any thoughts, experiences, opinions, etc. solicited.

Thanks Greg

I wanted to share this with you guys as a followup:

I ended up talking to Spencer of Fuchs performance group. He confirmed that the 19" wheels should be ready to order in the next few weeks. He indicated that the 18" wheels will be ready about the first of next year. He seemed to think that putting the 19 " wheels on my 03 C4 Cap would be just fine, though I have read on this site that it is not a "good" idea? Additional comments on this solicited. One attraction is that when it is time to upgrade to a 997 I might be able to just swap the wheels from one car to the other (with spacers for the rear).

I asked him about his wheel compared to the Ruger wheel, he was quick to tell me that he is suing the company for patent infringement and further more the Ruger wheel he tested was of poor quality e.g. mating surface out of plane causing a wobble. His product is also American made forged wheel produced by APP Forging, compared with the Ruger being Chinese Cast.

Seemed like a nice enough guy well spoken and knowledgeable. I can not attest or verify the accuracy of these claims, just sharing the conversation FWIW.

The Ruger wheel set retails for ~$1500

Fuchs FP-1 Retail price ~$5200.

Anyone have experience (advice) with putting the Ruger Classic on a 996 C4?

I might go with the new Fuchs 18", or 19" when they become available, for now my goal is to be as informed as possible.

Thanks guys!
