Question Help me decide on HRE FF01 wheel color for my Black 981 Cayman S

  1. Tarmac (more of a flat semi)
  2. Liquid Gloss Black (gloss black, up charge)
  3. Anthracite (gloss gun metal, up charge)


First image HRE FF01 Fog (Fog finish shown in image below, but I would get the Anthracite finish that is the gloss of same color in image)


Second image is HRE FF01 Tarmac (seems to be a semi gloss to flat finish)


Third image HRE FF01 Liquid Gloss Black


Anthracite (a gloss gun metal color)

Crazy that 20” is the “right” size for the 981

They all look pretty good.... I like that liquid black the most.

I have Liquid Silver on my GT4.... the FF01's will look good on the 981 in literally any color.

I am not sure up front but I know others have said 295 rub and largest rears I have heard without issues or spaces is 275" on 10" rims. Personally I would do OEM size 265 on rear if using the Porsche OEM 20" that is a 9.5" wide rear wheel. But with the HRE 10" rear tires I have seen some 918 with 275/35/20 rear and 245/35/20 front looked like a good balance and owners said no issues.
