Hi, I am new here. From NL and my paint skills are not great:dance:.

Since few seem to like any of the standard wheel options the standard versions are ordered often and I was inspired by @PITTSBURGHTAYCAN here.

I used the even cheaper wheels. It does not magically make then 21" but I quite like em now.. What do you think?

Curious about all black as well. Maybe a bit too "steel-wheel-like" given the large surface area.

The inverted CF version look more traditional 5 spoke design. Looks pre cut, like thick stickers. Don't like the CF personally.
Also the outer chrome line along the edge belongs to the carbon covered piece, but covering that would make the wheel optically smaller. But cool to see another option, everything beats the standard wheels:clap:

Nice find on the full black mod! We learned full black is possible, just not advisable (imho).

The Audi looks amazing, I mean it's wheels do:angel:

Looks great! - Did you use Plasti-Dip or similar paint?

Thanks! I have used the Porsche configurator and Microsoft Paint 3D. It does the job I guess. Maybe if all goes well I can someday try this for real:cool:

first, the 19s look like a better canvas to start with your personal configuration and I’m pulling for you to have an amazing outcome with whatever you choose. The flat surface will make it easier and you won’t see the texture behind the alteration like you do on the 20s. The 19s dual finish is what pushed me to the 20s, but I never thought through the idea of updating both blades as I will suggest in a second.

Just a thought, grab the satin platinum color “Aurum, if you want to be extra bold” from other Porsche wheels for one blade and add a dynamic high contrast carbon fiber wrap for the other blade.

I used a high quality 3M pinstripe in variable widths and it looks as good as the day I put it on 6 months ago. It survived a 3000 mile snowy and salty winter.

My Detailer/wrap/tint guy was super AGAINST plasti-dip. Either product peels off easily with a heat gun.

I can’t wait to see your creation.

Your original post inspired me. Thanks for the reply:like:

And.. Yes! Aurum will look great with the green. Cool suggestion, 1 blade. Not sure I am that bold.

I have experimented with plasti dip in the past and agree. I don't like the look and the application method. End result just looks way less compared to a proper wrap job.

I like @JohnnyCage "cheap mod" best, great work! You made the worst looking wheels (IMO from factory options....Although I think the salad slicers are a close second...I know some of you LOVE them, I just don't) and mad them look pretty darn good!
The all black, looks like a cheap model 3.

Looks pretty good. I’ve asked my SA about getting this done when I have the vehicle wrapped and tinted. I’ve gone with the 19” wheels to seek better range. I’ve seen the 20” wheels on my demo vehicle and thought they didn’t look as nice in person as they do in pics.

While my CT is sitting at the factory lot waiting for chips, I have too much time to be inspired by both this thread and also this https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/t...one-to-match-the-car-color-gentian-blue.6253/ nice blue set by 911Jeff.

And so I fiddle around with photoshop. My CT will arrive in Mahogany, so I figure that black and body color, but also Aurum or some bronze shade could work. Which makes too many combinations.

Many combos look awful to me, but here are some that I kinda like. Too many, I know. More could follow. :D
