    Porsche colored wheel crest


    I have my car since Feb, 05. I was washing my wheels yesterday and I noticed something strange. I never paid much attention to the crest until I noticed my left side crests are differrent than the right side.

    My left side crests are smaller than the right side.

    I ordered the car with colored crest. I'd guess Porsche put the wrong crests at the factory???

    Quick fix down the dealers ..

    Re: Porsche colored wheel crest

    They do it to compensate for the grade/pitch to the RH side of the road so the car will roll straight when you take your hands off the wheel.....Of course, in the UK, they swap sides.....

    Wow they are different, I will check mine ASAP.

    Re: Porsche colored wheel crest

    The new versions are a much bigger crest - the 996 era ones had a smaller crest and a recessed circle about 5mm from the outer edge.

    I prefer the older version, but then i would as i took them off my last car

    Re: Porsche colored wheel crest

    I'm putting colored crest on mine. I'll check if they are even.

    Re: Porsche colored wheel crest

    yes, the right side are the newer version. The left crests are smaller with the circle around the them...
    I'll have to visit the dealer...

    Re: Porsche colored wheel crest

    Somebody stole one or two of the original new crests off your car, so the dealer scrambled to get replacements. They just took two off a 996 and slapped them on your car on one side. Probably couldn't get new ones because of a shortage. That's my guess.
