What do you think the best looking four stud wheels on a narrow body 914 are? Fuchs? Mahle? American Racing?

Real 5 bolt fuchs, 15 or 16 inch X 6, unfortunately they're no longer cheap.
Or real 4 bolt fuchs, until you have held a tire and a forged fuchs rim in your hands you won't believe how light they are.

For 4 lug, it's tough to beat the early steel wheels...

But I think the best looking wheels on a 914 are the classic 5 lug Fuchs...
