New wheels installed (Porsche content)

Haven't posted in a while but I am still here, checking out the forum occasionally. Got tired of my black wheels and brought something new. Whatcha think?

Welcome back, Jai! I prefer the black wheels. They looked more aggressive and less stock (I know that a lot of people will say they prefer it looking *more* stock). Instead of changing wheels, I would've changed the tail lights .

Well then, here are a couple of pics with the black wheels. I still have them in the garage. An overwhelming 99% of Porsche members like the new wheels, they said the black ones were too bling, the new ones are more classy. I'm still up in the air, still like the black ones but is warming up to the new ones. You don't like the LED tail lights? Not sure I agree with you there.





Pictures of the old tail lights b/c you don't like the new ones.

The rest of the car is so aggressive. Stance, giant wing on the back. I don't see why the wheels need to exude "class" .

I actually like LED tail lights, and I honestly didn't realize you had changed them out. I have seen some Porsches that have basically "white" tails for lack of a better word. I guess they are like a fully smoked lens (but not very dark) with colored bulbs/LEDs behind them. I'm not sure if those are available for your model and year, but those would look great with the lights on the front of the car. Less red basically.

The Porsche forum is full of classy people , the majority of them like the stock look, the more stock it looks the better. Many on the forums don't care for my car actually. I like it loud and proud.

Yes, there aren't too many stock parts on my 911. I like to mod, can't help it. They do have clears for it, they also have smoked tails, basically the same as what I have now but tinted. I prefer what I have. The red matches with my brake calipers.

Looks good, but just to be different, I'd prefer the old wheels, but in the new colour/tone.......

Porsche's are driver's cars, once you get hooked in with the 911, you'll want another. I ended up with two now. Do it if you can, you will not regret.
