    Though it looks better than I would have expected,it still looks like too much white for me...

    You really don't want to have the wheel outer rim painted any color but silver.

    The paint will not only get damaged too easily in normal driving, but also every time the tires are changed.

    hum... thats correct

    The fact is that with black wheels, i do not see the border with the tire and i don't like that

    Any alternative ?

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    I don't agree with fritz, you'd be fine painting the rims any other color than silver. A friend has a 968 CS with painted rims and they're fine despite heavy abuse! Don't hesitate!

    I love it - white+white=gorgeous! Only downside is you'll have to clean the rims more often because the brake dust becomes more visible. But that's a small price to pay for having nice lookin' wheels

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    Sorry i was not talking about silver but about the damage caused by tires removing...

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    Who's coming up with this stuff?
    Arbitrarily partially painted wheels!?
    I mean it's a crazy bizzy-fication of yet another thing on the car. Sure when the outer rims are left "unpainted" and the spokes get paint is okay... .

    But this is silly; will look even better when brake dust takes it's place on the alternating bi-color stage:

    Guys, today I saw a black GT3 rs with white decals at the dutch importer. It looked stunning. I took some pics with my cellphone, will post them asap (Tuesday) The rims where as posted above by MMD, but then with white what's silver above, and black what's white above... looked very good!

    Looked very good huh? Well okay. seeing stuff in person is important.

    BTW, despite what I say, if a friend fell in love with those wheels and ordered them I'd be happy.

    I'm just thinking critically, I mean here's this new twist to wheel painting and I'm not just gonna accept it and assume Porsche stylists are always correct because they are genius-inspired.

    Why? because they look strange and have no precedent and I believe the car is getting too busy-looking... .

    It also hints at the possibility that Porsche is desperate to sell the maximum number of cars and will do anything to get people titilated enough to buy one; kinda whore-ish IMO.

    Looks like starship troopers from Star Wars.

    Leave them silver, or paint them black. I don't dig it. Too pimp.

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    You would need PCCB with those rims for sure. Arent they standard on the GT3?

    Shouldn't be anything to worry about either. Getting rims painted isn't like a regular paint job for the car body - the paint on rims is much tougher.

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    OK guys,
    As promised the pictures of the black/white rs.
    I talked with one of the salesmen. It was a black/orange rs, with all the orange parts customly painted white. The rims where additionally custom, because the had to be painted in two colors.

    Nice car but really do not like the way the wheels are painted ...

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    That looks very sharp Joost

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    Absolutely love it. Is it for sale ?

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    nope, it has been sold!

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    I saw a really stunning 997 GT3 RS in Milano... white with black rims and black graphics on the side. Absolute phantastic look!!!
    Somebody has a picture?

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    It was this one:

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    nice pics

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    those wheels are just not doing it .... Looks like a chritmas tree!

    Re: White painted wheels on white GT3 ?

    It makes the car look less aggressive and a bit on girly side. Silver is better
