Bronze is a fad. For a JDM car, yes bronze works. High end German cars, classic black or satin are timeless.

Keep in mind that the gold wheels on GT3RS (bronze gold) are different gold than on the gt2rs (white gold)

Yes bronze/gold is popular but it has a pretty good history in racing. Plenty of vintage race cars rocking gold wheels.

In fairness, this must be viewed if we are talking red and gold. Pretty darn consistent.

Black wheels or satin with silver rims is more classic than all black wheel. All black wheel is the modern version of that wheel.

Gold wheels a fad? Pretty enduring for a fad.

Furthetmore, if arum wheels are PAG factory equipment it’s no “fad”. It’s part of Porsche history then and now.

Thank you all for the info. Yes, the HRE looks great but I plan on sticking with my OEM wheels and having them refinished.

As much I hate lizard, interior in lizard green would work well. I would remove the center seat cushions and replace with a custom seat inserts. The lizard green stitching look good, and it's a zero cost option.
