Low demand for 6'' Fuchs. So not surprised by that price. Very rare to have 4 in one sale though. Normally staggered with 7 or 8''

No, 6 and 7 and I think 7 and 8 for the final model year (may have been 7 and 9).

Yes, all 6's would be wrong for the G-model 911's but thought they might be suitable for a 924 though....

6” Won’t look right on the rear of a turbo in my opinion.

Is that because you think the rears will look better with a deeper dish to the front, or some other reason?

Yes. And will sit too in board. The stock wheels lack some dish, especially the rear, and also look too in board weakening the look of sportiness in my view. That and the cars sit too high in stock form.

All in the eye of the beholder.......
