A review for the common man. I wonder if Kim will be doing any reviews.

Man, do you have keen eyesight. Go to the Porsche configurator and yes, they are backwards!

Everyone with the 21 inch wheels will need to check if they are on backwards.

Damn I may have a problem Houston...
What do you think is the correct way of mounting them?
I have mine mounted with front wheels having the metal spoke touching ground first and then the carbon plate (in the direction of rotation), which is contrary to the Bill Nye picture...
And the rear wheels mounted the opposite, with the carbon plate hitting the floor first while rotating and then the metal spoke...
hard to tell how it should be...

Got it... the carbon blade should hit the road first so the rear wheel on the Bill Nye picture is backward (wrong)...
Gosh I got to go back to the dealer...again!

I've just dealt with the topic. I thought wrong rims were sold to me.
20-Zoll Taycan Tequipment Design. But there is only one side of this rim. So, on the other hand, the rims are visually wrong.

Safe! But then again, customization definition is "a modification made to something to suit a particular individual or task" - With my OCD issues, I'm just glad they are on the right way...I think

Since the wheels are marketed as "aerodynamically optimized," I find this surprising. Did they confirm that this is how it is supposed to be?
