    15 x 6 Fuchs

    I'm considering a set of fuchs from a '73 for my '69 911s. Will they fit correctly? Specifically , they are vin number 911.361.020.00.

    Can't find any 901s!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Yes, they will fit

    I had a set of Fuchs with .020 part number on my 1970 911S Targa, which is the same body as your 1969. They fit fine until I found a set of the original wheels .012 part number, commonly called "deep dish" on it.

    They will fit, but will be "late 6s" as opposed to "deep 6s." the appearance is a little different, and they have safety beads that the earlier wheels don't have. Also, they are easier to mount tires on, and use valve stems that are easier to source. If you want to keep your car absolutely correct, you should avoid them. Otherwise, they offer a more practical solution than the correct wheels.

    I was not aware that they were two types of 15x6 Fuchs.
