    requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    if you have pics of painted wheel on a 997 or can point me to them, I would really appreciate it.

    Still can't decide if painting them black on my black 997 makes it looks better or worse.

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    Mate, i picked up my 997s on friday with black painted carrera s wheels. I made the order without having seen one in real life so i was kinda scared.

    I looove it and am so glad i did. the first thing anyone says when they see the car is "man, i love the wheels".

    and with the silver lip & red callipers it looks crazy on the spin.
    do it

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    Triple black is very nice and very original. Just have to make sure that you always have your lights on when driving at night, otherwise could be dangerous.

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    That's not basalt black is it!?
    Solid Black looks sweet dude! Congrats!

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    ....better paiting the center in black

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    Wow! That's hot! Now i wanna have 'em painted black with my Blck/Blck! Hope it's not too late to put the order in ?!

    BTW Rico, Are those windows tinted? they look quite dark. I'm in a dilenma whether to do so...

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    the polished / silver lip on a black rim really helps the overall appearance.

    in my personal opinion, painting the entire rim black makes it look a bit too dark and dare i say, cheap.

    the BBS Mags/Alum racing rims that i have for my GT3 are painted with a silver lip/edge, helps really add some much needed contrast.

    IMHO, consider that current style in cars is to call attention to the wheels. There are hundreds to choose from and they're mostly all shiney and flashy (they even have those spinning inserts happening!).

    So I guess putting black wheels on a black car will blow fuses in people's minds (not really a good thing). It is anti-trend.

    Other than black (which for Porsche has a Fuchs wheel precedent), if you get wheel colors same color as car my brain tends to see them as made out of plastic, not metal alloy.

    yeah! makes it look like a toy!
    i think i even had a matchbox porsche back in 1986 that held an uncanny resemblence to my new toy.

    i actually wouldnt consider it a fad tho. it has been a porsche thing for a long time. look at the old 70's porsches. dad had a 911SC targa in 76 with black wheels. history repeats itself my friend.

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    Carrera Sport

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    My car came in along with a Triple Black C4S Cab with Carrera Sports painted Black. IMHO the look took away from the beauty of the wheel.

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    I've been debating this for my next car. Black or any other color w/black wheels look pretty wicked, but accents too much of the dirty guts of the wheel/brake assembly.
    The GT silver/ and the Greys: Atlas/Seal wheels look great IMHO.

    May be my boring American-midwest taste, but IMHO Midnight blue wheels (below), red, other 'colors' not so nice (cobalt wheels? arena red?)..looks like they're trying too hard or it's color overkill with red calipers (nasty amber side markers no help )
    Midnight blue


    Guards/blk

    SEAL /seal wheels

    Arctic/techart

    Oh crap! NOW I may have to change my order to these wheels on my black/black with Aerokit and PCCB's. Looks better with the silver "lip".
    Man this forum can vacuum money from you wallet faster than you can say Orek!

    Order for March build, late April/May delivery.

    ...silver C4 with black rims...

    Re: requesting pics of painted wheel on a 997

    Thanks for all the great pics. I saved them. now just have to decide what to do.

    With regards to the "silver lip" do they actually paint it silver, or do they just leave it alone. and paint the rim black? Sorry if its a stupid question.
