New rims Dage Fuch

Well whilst my car has been away getting restored i have bought loads of different wheel, then changed my mind etc.... think i have found the ones now..

Thinking gold centres, these are pretty rare made by compomotive in the 80's for DAGE the porsche tuner.. picked up eight as part of a deal and have provisionally sold the 11's and 9's to a buggy boy.

What do you reckon, gold centre, polished rim with a stretched tyre.

Gold, black or silver with polished lips will look great. Nice find.

Those are awesome! Gold centers, Black bolts, polished lips. You could always paint the centers the body color......

Those wheels are 3-piece right? What sizes? Want to sell a set?

sorry to highjack a little,

just informative I have a similar set of wheels, I wanted to narrow the fronts a little and I contacted compomotive, very friendly they set me up with a set of narrower rims of their existing wheel series, just redrilled with some more holes to fit the older dage ones -and not that expensive- so if you wil be in need of some other widths for the wheels I think you should contact them
