Default Racing Yellow 991.2. Painting my wheels in a more colourful shade?

Can’t get this idea out of my head, although my daughters have already given their opinion!

Saw this blue 911 with orange wheels recently and was blown away!

It inspired me to consider a ‘contrasting’ colour for the wheels on my Racing Yellow 991.2.

Just getting the existing 20” Carrera S wheels painted.

Possibly purple...?

Yes, I know it would make a statement, draw attention and divide opinion.

Have I been out in the sun too long...?!

I think it'll look great and think you should do it.

Your car, your rules. You're the only one that has to be pleased. Your daughters can fix it after you pass the car on to them...

For me, you already have a bright pop type color on the body, doing it on the wheels is going to make it look too busy and over-the-top. The good thing is, it isn't permanent. So, if you do it and don't love it, reverting is a simple process.

Like the blue car you pictured, it might hep if you also do other accents (such as stripes, etc.) to match. Again, just my opinion. Good luck!

Try gold/bronze wheels or candy red.

Go for green wheels to complement the yellow. No one, anywhere, will have a car quite like yours!

I will be the naysayer, no. You don't need to dress a 911 up like a prostitute to look good. Your car looks amazing, you are just used to seeing it all the time.

Thanks, guys. The input is appreciated. Another idea suggested elsewhere was Frozen Blue...

Yes. I think that’s the best so far. It’s a Porsche colour and I like the gloss finish. (The wheels are currently Titanium Grey in a gloss finish.)

Thank you.
