Sorry new to forum , no I was referring to the Vesuvius Grey C2S car that is top of page 2 I bought from RPM and now has the original gun metal grey cup wheels and cassette radio as per 1997 911 brochure ... there is now also a similar JZM car up for sale with different body colour wheels I think . Smile

I finally got around to having a go at this - not a 100% convinced yet, so it's more a proof-of-principle then the finished article...

Too much silver on the Outer Lip IMO. It can work on a split rim as you have the depth of the lip but on a flat faced single piece wheel, less is more. Wink

Have a look at my MY02's which are for sale: http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=124182

Funnily enough, you've inspired me. I often wondered what my car would look like with darker wheels (black Fuchs on the shopping list) so today I've invested the heady sum of £20 in some wrap to try on my wheels as a "proof of colour". If... a-hem...if it's not a complete f-up, I'll share pictures. Otherwise, you'll never hear this mentioned again Wink


...suffice to say, I won't be sharing photo's of wrapped wheels! Whistling

Shameless plug is shameless Hand

Funnily enough, I saw your wheels when you first posted them for sale - and thought that the silver band was too narrow Very Happy

Both the 993 and 996 that you posted for inspiration have the full outer lip in silver too...

Nothing wrong with a shameless plug fella. Wink

Indeed they do have more paint on the outer lip, however the lip on a MY02 Wheel is not as heavy as a Turbo Twist, hence they suit the cars much more IMO.

Here's an example of a Speed Yellow Porsche sporting Black Wheels with a fine silver lip. Wink
