Chalk with Bronze/Gold Wheels?
 
Hey 911 nerds. Does anyone have photos of a Chalk Porsche (any model will due) with bronze or gold wheels? I am thinking of having my 991.2 GT3 wheels painted or powder coated in a Matte bronze metallic. I did think on my white 997 turbo and loved it. The only example of a chalk on bronze I am aware of is from the HRE post found here: https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...torsports.html

Thank you for the help.

Cant think of too many chalk cars that have gotten the bronze treatment, I think mainly because the black contrast with it is so perfect, but could look cool with the right set of wheels...

How she currently sits. Chalk with Satin Platinum wheels. https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/rennlis...1436964b1d.jpg

I pulled my e30 m3 track wheels out just to get an idea. I like it, although that bronze is just a plastic-dip that actually looks more brown. https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/rennlis...3639587cde.jpg

Is that Chalk with White Gold?

Look for the new 991.2 GT3 RS with the Aurum wheels.. that's a good indicator.

Just curious; would you order the chalk car with satin platinum wheels again? Thatís what I have coming but not sure itís the right choice. Itís either that or black, and Iíve never been a black wheel guy.

Watch to the last 1/2 of the video starting at 4'18" Gold wheels. Chalk GT3 touring. At the end it is wrapped in olive green matte but there are few shots of the chalk with gold wheels.

I love the chalk on satin platinum look. It does all blend together very well and can look drastically different in different scenes. Cant go wrong with black either. I have had a few cars with black wheels and wanted to change it up, its just that Porsche didn't offer a bronze wheel option. I actually went through the same dilemma on black vs. platinum and the decision was easy enough because any low grade shop can have your wheels redone in matte black, but the finish of the satin platinum should be left to a manufacturer to get it just right. There is always the option of trading for an OEM set as well.

Good info, thank you! More gold than what I am looking to do but it is encouraging to see. I think a shade darker and grayer would be ideal, then enough metallic to brighten up in the right lighting.

I think the bronze on Chaulk look great.

I got tired of the black wheel thing. Ordered arum wheels on my new Guards red RS.
