Alternative Sport Design refurb ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi All. Has anyone tried doing anything different with the Sport Design wheel when they get it refurbed? To me they sometimes just look a bit lost in the wheel arch, at least on my car in white. I feel like they need to stand out a bit more. I thought maybe a metallic black may help, or maybe an anthracite/gun metal, but I'd probably struggle to get centre caps to match. Has anyone tried anything different? Got any pics? Looking to get them refurbed over the winter. TIA 51268403583_75c20c7e5d_z.jpg

black wheels always get lost imo. Very few cars can carry it off really well,but anthracite or gun metal grey looks better. 

I see you have a silver stripe around the edge, which does help a little.

brilliant silver. you've got some very nice multispoke wheels, but having them black means all the definition is gone.

a white car is probably one of the few colours that can pull off a black wheel, but i'd still say a standard silver wheel is better.

So totally different wheels on mine but maybe gives you an idea of how silver/grey might look (elements of grey paint next to the diamond cut on mine).

I did enquire about something very similar in getting the "small V" sections diamond cut but that was a no no apparently 😌

Silver. They did my lobsties black with a silver rim and it's OK but if they'd done them silver I would have been just as happy. Black car too. Can't go wrong with silver. 

Also IMO you have the best looking wheels but you just can't see them.

It is tough one as your car has got the black and white theme like mine.

 I had a set of loan wheels in silver and although I like the style of the alloys I don’t think the silver finish did my car any favours .

Although some may disagree but I think if you don’t want black then maybe Porsche platinum would work.

Maybe post a photo from the side and ask someone to photo shop some colour s on for you.

Did someone say Refurbed Sport Design,,,,,I might have a piccie :inocent:

Silver rim with anthracite centre works well on red 986.

You can always photo-shop various colours or there are even websites that can try different wheel colour/designs. Autotrader can usually proffer up some ideas.

Nice to see what the silver option looks like but I agree that it doesn't enhance or add to the car. I'm tending towards Graphite or gun metal so far. I like the look of your current ones but I'm told I can't have the sport design wheel diamond cut.
