Might have to change my spec to lower
Price in order to get a decent insurance price. Between the turbo aero and off-road wheels, what would be your choice, I’m leaning towards the off-road, but the turbo aero is a classic.
stupid insurance!

Does anyone know if the "off road wheels" Are any stronger or more durable....or is this merely a name?

I'm going with the standard 19-inch wheels, for better range, better safety, better ride, and to save money that I can spend on other options.
You know I also much prefer the look of 19' wheels maybe with the additional black finish. I really think the larger tyre wall gives the car much better proportions as well as ride comfort and range. Whilst you can drive your taycan around the track when you might notice the lower profile tyre, for everyday motoring the 19" wheel is preferable, anyhow if you need a track car you'd be much better off with a GT3, so maybe get one of both ;)

The spec I'm sitting on has the Turbo wheels, both for the aero and the more minimal look compared to the Turbo S wheels.
The offroad design wheels look cool, but they also don't look aerodynamic, plus I'd prefer to get them in black as opposed to silver/grey/metal-whatever color.

I think either the Turbo or the Turbo S look great and will probably give you a little more range than the offroad design ones

I’ve answered my own question. They are “high gloss”. I questioned it because the turbo aero wheels look matt black in Bill4444’s photos of the wheels. I’m still deciding on the wheels. Not sure about so much glossy black.

Would be great to hear what you decide. I am trying to make the same decision.
