    Painted Wheels

    I am thinking of ordering black painted wheels with my Cayman S. Does anyone have any experience of the durability of the finish. Will I end up with visible stone chips etc after a short whileSmiley

    Re: Painted Wheels

    My friend has black rims, and i think eventually you will see more usage then with regular rims.. so life is shorter... but an easy respray after a couple of years will do just the job, and for that your car will look amazing!!!

    Just stay out of the sand out there in Dubai Smiley

    Re: Painted Wheels

    They'll have a clearcoat finish just as the silver rims do so durability should be good. Furthermore, you'll spend a lot less time cleaning off brake dust. My silver 19" Carrera Classic rims require heavy maintenance to keep clean. After each wash, the car must be driven to empty the water out of the brake rotors which in turn soils the wheels again. Wipe them down again and they're finally clean (for a day or two). Go for the black!

    Agree with your experience exactly with the wheel cleaning! I go through MacGuire's wheel cleaner likes it's going out of fashion. At least the Carrera Classics (which I've also got) are probably the easiest Porsche wheel to clean!
