Description

Porsche 911 Fuchs Wheels were the first one-piece light-weight forged aluminium wheel to be fitted to a production vehicle. The forged manufacturing method was revolutionary for the time.

Designed in conjunction with Otto Fuchs KG, Porsche modeler Heinrich Klie and Ferdinand Porsche Jr for the 1967 model year Porsche 911S, the Fuchs wheel was the first light-weight forged wheels to be fitted to a production automotive vehicle.

These early wheel sizes are no longer in production and are extremely rare, and the only alternative was a low-cost cast reproduction, which is typically heavier and weaker.

EB Motorsport’s version of the Porsche 911 FUCHS Wheel 5.5 x 15 Plain Aluminium are CNC machined using aerospace-grade aluminium, from the hub mounting to the front rim face, optimising the wall section, keeping material where strength is critical, and removing it where not.

This produces a wheel which is inherently strong and almost as light as the original forged wheel.

This can be supplied in plain aluminium/machined finish for customers to organise their own refinishing.

These wheels are beautifully made: we believe they out-look and out-last anything else you can buy. Fuchs wheels are definitely one area where you get what you pay for – why skimp on the all-important details?

The price reflects per wheel.
