I opted to keep the 19" Aero wheels (discussion for a different thread!) and one of my friends said they looked like hubcaps. I definitely had to change that perception. Below are the before and after pics of the wheels.

I'm surprised at how awesome I think it looks. Nice job!

That is a remarkable transformation.

When painted black, the light on the different surface angles makes them look less plain and far more sporty. ?

I think it looks good. I have black vinyl that I'm going to wrap the wheel with.
I thought about vinyl but there wasn't anyone in my local area to do it.

Would like to see how yours turn out!

Outstanding!!! ??

I’ll be getting my Turbo Aeros treated similarly.

Porsche’s highway robbery strategy of making you drop over £2k on brake upgrades you don’t need so you can then spend £800+ to get them painted black sucks. Making you spend another £1500 minimum to have a 21’ wheel they’ll paint is criminal. Meanwhile black wheels are a no/little cost option on just about any £100k equivalent motor! Only way you can get a 20’ wheel in black is to buy a GTS. Ok Frans! ?‍♂

Great job??

That is part of the reason I didn't get the mission E wheels.

Too Bugsy Malone for me, but some gorgeous cars kicking around on them! The joy of individualisation!

Won’t lie, was pretty ? when the GTS was launched and the Spyder wheels became an option on the 4S. I suspect they’ll be heavily selected!

I love the red calipers, why would I pay to have them painted! ?‍♂

I also ordered my taycan with standard wheels. Not because I like them but I would rather spent my money on other options. Before delivery, June, I will have the wheels sprayed. Thinking of this:

but best would be when these wheels would be available

I’m really keen to see what turbo Aeros painted black looks like! Have been thinking about this as well - I have volcano grey with white PSCB callipers under turbo aero … I just want to lose the silver as the rest of the finishes are gloss black - so please post when you do!
