    19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-Pics

    I'm considering upgrading my wheels to the Carrera Sport ones. However, my 987S is Silver and I would appreciate if anyone could post some pics of these wheels (not the car configurator ones-thanks) on a Silver Boxster?

    I know they look great on dark colors, but because they are painted grey, I'm worried they may just look dirty on an arctic silver.

    Thanks in advance.



    Its these type

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-Pics

    AFAIK, Carrera Sport wheels are not painted grey - they are painted in GT Silver so they should look just a little darker than Arctic Silver.

    My opinion? It should look great

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-Pics

    There's one often parked not far from my office and it looks *great* - I will try and get a pic next time I walk past...

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-Pics

    Just search the used-car locator on Porsche's website:

    Brilliant, Thanks Guys....faster replies than I thought

    what do you think of it?
    The wheels are quite a bit darker aren't they?.

    Are they GT Silver..they look darker than that.

    Will need to see some more pics I think.I'm torn between Sport Designs and these..but I am a bit of a compulsive type and like my wheels to be shiny and clean.

    Maybe the painted part is putting me off a little. But the wheel itself is very, very nice indeed.

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    Yes, they are darker than the color of the paint, but look how they match the side intake and the built-in roll bar. I think that it provides some very nice contrast to the silver paint as well, but you should be the ultimate judge.

    I think it would look better on a Darker coloured car, but even on Arctic they don't look bad at all.

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    i think it looks lovely. Makes it look very $$$. Not dirty at all. The filled out arches compliment the body lines very well and the darker colour comes back in the softtop! I say go for it, you won't regret it. Looks stunnung

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    dbz - don't get Sport designs... They look "bling" like those dodgy Kahn wheels!!

    Get the Carrera Sports, they look great at all angles, very chunky and might look even better with spacers.

    Off colour but:


    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    I do like the wheel and the way it is sporty and chunky a lot..it's the color that maybe too much.

    I should have said before that I have a Metropol Blue hood with Ocean (Sea) blue interior and I think it just might be too many different colors going on. Volcano vents and roll overs, red brake calipers, blue hood and then grey wheels.

    I appreciate everyone's input and help. If anyone comes across any more photos I would certainly like to see them.

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    Took this this morning...


    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    ooohhh now they don't look too dark at all

    thank you so much for doing that Boytronic

    what do others think?

    These don't look painted like the first ones or is it a trick of the light?

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    My other half has these wheels on her Boxster S. They are painted GT silver as standard so would look fine against artic IMHO.

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-

    You're welcome dbz! It's not a great pic - they do look darker in reality, but they suit the silver very well - I wouldn't mind at all if that was my car!

    Handsome!

     

    Thanks again BT, I think they look better with a GT silver car than the arctic (at least they maych, whereas with the arctic they are actually darker). Nice to see these,thank you. I wonder if I could get some which were not painted?

    Re: 19 in Carrera Sport Wheels with Arctic Silver-Pics

    I'd go for the Carrera Sports over SDs any day - fill the arches more and a hell of a lot easier to clean inside than my sport designs :D

    Whilst Carrera Sports do look better on dark blues and greys , they look very handsome on arctic too ;)
