Wednesday Wheels: Porsche 944 “Cookie Cutters”

In the early 1980s, the name “Fuchs” was synonymous with Porsche – but if you ordered either a 911 or a 944, you had to specify you wanted the Fuchs wheels. Otherwise, your car would come with these ATS-made cast wheels known as “Cookie Cutters”. While they’re not held in as high regard as the Fuchs, the reality is that these cast wheels were nearly as light as the forged wheels at a fraction of the price. For a fraction of the price of a set of Fuchs wheels, you can get a great set of track wheels for your 911, 944 or 924S:

Model: 944
Diameter: 15″
Width: 7″
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 130
Offset: ET
Condition: Used
Tires: Not Included
Price: No Reserve Auction

CLICK FOR DETAILS: Porsche 944 Cookie Cutter wheels on eBay

HISTORY: These are the original wheels and hubcaps from my 1983 Porsche 944. My car, though nice, will not qualify as a museum piece so I’m using Phone Dials because they were handy and already had new tires on them. These “Cookie Cutters” have been decorating the wall of my garage for a year now and need to go to an enthusiast’s home. I have another such wheel, which is not in this auction, but did not list it because it has a tire on it.

CONDITION: These wheels were painted in an earlier life. I asked a Porsche mechanic to clean them in his hi-tech parts cleaner. The after-market paint came off in large pieces and really messed up his parts cleaner. (Sorry, Tom!) He took them out before the paint was completely removed, thus some “splotches” are re-adhered and clinging to the metal. Some flakes can be removed with a fingernail but others not so much. I think the wheels need to go into another parts cleaner, such as machine shops use, perhaps when the solvent needs cleaning anyway.There are places on the outside of the rims that may have been caused by a tire tool or too close a brush with the curb, but I don’t think they will adversely affect performance.

    Cookie Cutters? I’ve heard of Salad Shooters and Potato Slicers (not these wheels, obviously), but that’s a first.
