Here's a little info that probably won't benefit anyone but is interesting nonetheless! On the '68 GT I picked up yesterday I knew there was something familiar about the rims. I just made a positive i.d. They're Porsche 8x15 OEM Fuchs rims. I think they used to put them on Targas. Who would have thought they'd have fit?!?

Sorry I am digital camera-challenged! A guy took a look at them today and told me I should be able to get P40,000 for them ($800), so I offered them to him for P20,000 and he said he had no money. Typical! A beat up set on E-bay are currently at abot $250 and rising.

HOLD UP! Don't go shelling out for Porsche rims just yet! I just tried swapping them from one Stang to the other, and they come off what I believe are the Ford truck pattern lugs. Anyway, they won't fit my standard Stang lugs
