Ha ha!

Haven’t ruled out the green, but favouring Voodoo Blue at present. No rush though.

Appreciating all the input.

+2 for green. Get the Jamaican flag vinyl wrapped on your hood.

Can you still get these Pirelli Color Edition tires?? (Slightly less permanent splash of color)

For crying out loud man, think outside of the box. Get each wheel painted a different color and make a real statement. People will never be able to unsee it.

From what I recall, they were ridiculously expensive. More costly than getting the wheels repainted.

Probably not, at least not to begin with...

I also think you need other accents to match the color of your wheels to make it come together.

Your wheels are grey now to match the grey mirrors and stripe/script. I think if you change the color of the wheels it would help to perhaps try some color matching accents on the outside like the PORSCHE logo on the blue/orange car. Other than that, most likely it will look great. It will stand out among the see of drab grey/black/white cars. Yellow and Green is a classic Porsche combo. Sure their will be a bunch of naysayers. We know blah color cars win the "popularity" contest, thus why they are all over dealer lots and the classifieds, but they never win the "cool" contest. You also hardly see them for sale...people keep them because they are special.

With and without green wheeels:

Yep, agree completely. Am warming towards Voodoo Blue for my 20” Carrera S wheels. Maybe get the mirrors done in Voodoo Blue, or Racing Yellow. And get the classic “Porsche” side decals featuring some Voodoo Blue. Possibly remove the Agate Grey rear badging too, or get that painted in Voodoo Blue...

I think a two tone (yellow/black or grey) would look nice for the wheels.
