    Advice - wheels painted in exterior body color (Option XD9)

    Need advice on whether I should have my carrera S wheels painted black on my 997S black/black. Does anybody think that would look good? Or should I stick with the standard chrome Carrera S wheels.

    I like the standard finish. By the way, if you cannot wait, there will be one triple black 997S with PCCBs, full leather, adaptive seats, chrono, nav, Bose, heated seats that is available for delivery next Saturday. This is the only S car the dealer has till next year for February build. And he will sell it for MSRP.

    Interesting idea. I often wondered

    why wheels had to be silver andwhat same colored wheels would look like etc.

    never solved the problem, but I think it will be difficult to pull off in a way which makes the ar look more elegant. It is highly likely that the car will look tougher, more rugged, less showey

    here's a spy photo with the wheels painted mat black, better than nothing as a starting point I guess

    Re: Advice - wheels painted in exterior body color (Option XD9)

    That's pretty tempting. It looks like it has everything I want. I have a feeling it won't be MSRP for long. What dealership is it at? I might swing by just to take a look.

    Re: Interesting idea. I often wondered

    Thanks for the picture. That sucker looks mean! I kind of like it. Reminds me of the older 911 carrera's black wheels. Looks like I'm going to have to think about this one.

    Re: Interesting idea. I often wondered

    I'm the painted wheels MAN!!!

    I love painted wheels...i had it on my former 996 Turbo and now i've painted Sport Techno on my B.Black Cayenne..they looks great!!

    BUy it!

    I'm thinking about getting mine painted to black, so I understand your "dilemma". It looks great, I saw an Exclusive 997 with black painted wheels and PCCB but it might look a bit too "aggressive" or "sporty" to some people who prefer a more "elegant" look. It is a matter of personal taste I guess.

    Its at the dealership in Carlsbad, Hoehn Porsche. Ask for the sales manager, Tom.

    Gotta tell ya: do the wheels in a variation on silver

    I been thinking and I come to conclusion that doing the wheels in seal grey or slate grey, or the other grey/silver colors would look REALLYU gorgeous.

    Still, making the wheels an entirely different color (i.e. NON-grey-silver) would peobably result in a less show-y, more tough looking color.

    The fact that the wheels _STAY_ what you'd expect (grey, dark, grey, silver-ish, metallic) keeps the chances high that the car will look fantastic in an aesthetically pleasing way.

    Can't explain it fully though.

    Re: Gotta tell ya: do the wheels in a variation on silver

    i'd go for black outside and very dark (but no black) wheels...

    hope you live near a car wash!

    Re: Gotta tell ya: do the wheels in a variation on silver

    yes on boxter 550 spider wheels looked great in seal grey.Saw one at the motor show and the centre of a carrera 18" wheel was painted seal grey and the spokes left alone i think.Interior in cocoa looked good too.
