It ocurs to me that we've forgotten the various combination of wheel offered by the factory for 914's.

I see to recollect (VERY dangerous) that there were:

Steel - four versions (maybe 5)

Alloy - five versions

I know there were different widths available in some, but I'm talking about design.

I'll start - these are 5 1/2J steel wheels from an early car with appearance group. Yes, they've been rstored & no, they do not have the proper flat black center spray around the lugs.

5 1/2" x 15" 10-spoke MAHLE "gasburner" wheels, optional on 914-6's in 1970.

And what they look like on the car.

BTW, for CW's, even though I got the crests to line up vertically, I was dinged for not having the correct tire size at the Portland Parade. Ouch. New XAS's of the correct size are going on shortly.

Pat- that is the exact stlye of Jackstand that just failed on Gint. His 914 broke his nose & practically crushed his face. I never had a problem w/ them either but after reading the thread his wife wrote on what happened to him I'm getting rid of mine & using pinned tripods only.

Coker Tire complete with inner tubes. $$$ouch. Now all I need to do is find someone with a tire changer who will be gentle with the wheels.

I'm still in recovery from the last surgery. I'm able to go to my office, however after 5-6 hours I run out of steam. Foolishly I tried inspect the front end of the 6 last week. Got down just fine (funny how gravity works that way). Took me 10 minutes to crawl to my bench to pull myself backup.

James, it's a start! I know how the gravity thing works too - bad knees & hips & getting worse every year. Keep your spirits up bud - you be OK.

As to the Coker thing - I need to do the same thing. PM me with the cost they quoted you please - I know they're expensive, but they ARE new tires & period correct. I know it won't do you any good in Maine, but there are more & more tire shops with equipment that don't damage the wheels. I just found out about one 10 miles from me that doesn't even touch them. Check around your area. Bet there's a similar place.

I do but they're not original 914, more like original 944 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) .

No deals, straight $191 per tire plus $24.95 for the inner tube. They had a good price on Vredestein Sprint's ($89/per) which recall seeing on several 914's back in the early '70's. I opted for the XAS's having the original mounted spare.

Coker tire web: www.store.coker.com

(BTW, I scored a set of year old XAS's, (new, with original shipping labels and shiiping straps as received by the eBay seller from Coker) off eBay at half the price. Still had to by the inner tubes though. Damn, they are skinny.)

Thanks McMark - burgers on me!
