I'm looking for a 944 nerd -- specifically, someone who can tell me what size/offset Fuchs wheels were available for the 944.

I have a set of aluminum trailing arms/rotors/brakes from an early 86 944 that I'll be using on my Puma. I'd like to use Fuchs wheels but it seems there are a TON of different ones made for the 911/924/944................

I have this chart for early 15" 911 fuchs.

4.5" 901.361.012.01 42mm positive offset
5.5" 901.361.012.04 42mm positive offset
6.0" 901.361.012.00 36mm positive offset
7.0" 901.361.012.05 49mm positive offset

This is a page from a porsche tech book.

If I rember correctly late 944 arms will add from 6.2 to 7.4 cm of track per side over the stock vw.
