i do really love the colour of the GT2 RS wheels and am thinking of having a change from the gloss black at the moment.

the GT3 is a lovely wheel but the curves hidden by the black.

I think it will works on guards red? anyone good with Photoshop? Wink

I think that looks mint Nick......

My standard wheels could maybe do with a refurb and I was thinking a similar colour would look nice on mine as well.......

Is this close to white gold? I'm on a laptop with not the best screen for colour matching...

Gold should always go well with a red car...

Nice work T, wasn't too sure about it when first mentioned, but that actually looks pretty good!

Defo better than black imo...

Yes agreed, I think it should work. I have a set of black wheels which came with a previous (red) car and to be honest could never get them to work on anything Smile
Think black hides too much of the detail on these. Lighter wheels also lift the red somewhat.

...red though, best colour for a 996 GT3 Smile
I have always hankered after a yellow clubsport as well but never found a proper example when looking.

Move on? Think me mad? Wink
I'm defo getting another 996 GT3 CS. The best of the lot for me if you intend to use enthusiastically - basically a 996 GT3 RS at half the price. Will need a few choice upgrades before she's ready to go.

I assume you are referring to my comment about upgrades.

1. Brakes (GiroDisc, Alcons, etc)
2. Dampers (3-way Nitron Race - Three adjustors are too much for us amateurs but the I like the quality of the system)
3. Motorsport diff
4. Cup 2 (or equiv tyres) on BBS LMs
5. RS wing
6. Cup steering wheel

The last couple of items are more aesthetic than essential, but it makes it a nice place to be. I kind of have most of these now so I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

Yes, sorry, I was....Hmmm, thats almost exactly what I have done to mine....its got Alcons, Cup wheel, Trofeo R's on LM's, Ohlins R&T and the RS wing. The previous owner had already installed the cage and factory buckets.

Are you going to the Porsche club no noise limit track day at Donnington? If so, I would be interested to see what you think of it if .....

Like minds Smile

No unfortunately I am not at that event.

Must admit I never quite jelled with Donnington (mainly to do with distance from Surrey and noise limits). Though appreciate that my last visit was in my early days of track driving (more nervous than fun), and you are referring to a no noise day.

Did you go for gold in the end Nick? I reckon gold wheels always look good on a GT3, the car can pull it off... Thumb

Nope. Have had no time as been in the us a fair bit with work.

Not sure whether to keep the centre cap black or do same colour as wheels?

My centre caps are black (OZ stickers), but would probably look better in gold to match the wheels
