Mellow Yellow SC
Mike's 911SC certainly draws some attention with its AWC Campy Sport.
And while the end result works very well, sadly this wheel build has a unique story that highlights the AWC experience.
This wheel build actually started as a set of Campy Sport wheels for Mike's narrowbody 964. The wheels we designed and production had started when sadly, that car was lost to an unfortunate accident.
Wheel Build for 964
|Wheel Build for 911SC|
The beauty of a modular wheel is that you can rebuild the same wheel with different inner and outer wheel parts to create a new wheel with a completely different size and fitment. As the diagrams show, these wheels originally started as 17x7+55 and 17x9+55 (a classic fitment spec for a 964) and were rebuilt to 17x7+16.9 and 17x8.5+10.5 (a modern fitment for a 911SC).
Making lemonade out of lemons enabled us to complete a wheel build for Mike and his 964 is now a distant memory as he is out enjoying his lovely SC.
