Powder Coat Stock 997.2 Wheels

I'll update on significant mods in separate threads as well. I'll start with this one then...

I took a risk here, and for me, it paid off as I love the outcome. I know this look is not for everyone -- that's for sure -- but I think it sets this car apart.

I had my stock rims powder coated a semi-gloss black with a semi-gloss guards red trim. Forgot the lug nuts, so those will be coated black as well. I think the pics below fairly well represent what it looks like in person, but the colors are more pronounced in person. These will be complemented shortly with Guards Red seatbelts.

taylorcoleman,

I really like what you did! I'm probably in the minority here but I never liked the look of the red calipers on a black car but with the accent stripe on the wheels it ties everything together and makes them look really cool! Very nice!

Black wheels = ok

Nice wing tho....

Red stripe makes me look at the wheels too much, and not the great body lines. I guess the red stripes don't work for me.

Best part about my wheels (for me), I'm very happy with them. Many compliments in person -- some of the pics emphasize the red more than in reality.

2nd best part, only $450.
