Aren't the new pads in the 992 supposed reduce brake dust by 90%?. Heard these are already fitted to the new Macans?

My favorite black wheels are the shiny silver ones.

If that's true, and if they'll make a retrofit rotor/pad for earlier models, I'll pay some fairly good money for them!

Black wheels don't look good on anything, except maybe heavy equipment.

Do you really think Silver wheels would better than Black on this? I don't.

I'm definitely in the black wheel club and prefer Satin Black. Also encourage having them coated with a nano coating of some kind. I have Gtechniq C5 on my GT4 and it makes cleanup way easier. It's a PCCB car, but I put a set of Girodisc iron rotors on it, so it obviously produces a ton of brake dust. Having the wheels and calipers coated makes cleaning them night and day. And installing the coating is a very simple process.

Opti-coat on my Satin wheels and calipers, which helps reduce the dust and I actually tried to blow it off with my breath, and I could.

I’ve had Gtechniq coating on my satin black wheels but still it’s an effort to get them super clean.
Any thoughts on powerdercoating vs painted? The cost is similar to OE option, just wondering wether powercoating would more durable/ easier to clean?

Either is fine but get them ceramic coated, which makes cleaning so much easier.

Bob, My new GTS has the CL Turbo S wheels. I am having the car picked up from the dealer Wednesday for PPF/ceramic on the body of the car. I'm still trying to decide about ceramic (the installer uses Ceramic Pro) on the wheels. Did it add any shine to the wheel? I'm not sure I want that.

You will be fine as it should be totally transparent with no change to the sheen on the wheels.

The nano coating for wheels and calipers isn't typically the same as what goes on the car. I have the satin black wheels on the GT4 and my girlfriend has them on her 718. I also just bought a set of OZs for the Fiesta ST and coated those myself. No change in appearance at all. But cleaning them is considerably easier and I would highly recommend it along with your brake calipers.
