Im pretty sure I will get this done. Thanks for the great Idea. I will take it to my local wrapping guy to see if that will do it as a temp version. Dont want to do a permanent thing in case it affects the GFV when returned to Porsche
Plasti-dip...will hold up better than vinyl but 100% reversible.

And to the OP I couldn't stand those wheels and now I like them so great job! Why didn't a designer at Porsche notice this when they were creating the wheels!

So, I had some black tape and decided to experiment.

I think 1/2” gloss black pinstripe tape might work. Mostly it doesn’t have to be 1/2” wide, but at the ends it does. Maybe even a little wider.

The challenge is the outside end isn’t 90° to the tape. And the inside end is an odd angle.

Ignore my sloppy taping. But it would take a long time to do all 40 strips. And trimming the tape has a high likelihood of scratching the wheel finish.

By the way, it is a glossy black paint, not metallic.

I’m thinking Masking and Removable Vinyl Paint might be better. (Read less likely to cut your wheel paint with razors).

Did you happen to take any pictures from, say, 5-10' away? Interested to see how well the tape experiment came to matching the photoshop from @PITTSBURGHTAYCAN .

No. Because (I assume) it will look like the original photoshop from far. And I only did one piece. So it would look silly.
