After coming close to selling my sport designs I decided to refurb them.
With the intention of using as a winter set I chose a darker finish , difficult to capture its a satin magnesium that has a coppery bronze fleck in it.
Really pleased with them


Nice work and getting my sport designs done in that sort of colour once the winter wheels go on . Mine is a black car so a little limited on what I can do as don’t want black on black and it’s a daily too.

I love what mike has done with the bronze colour on his 997 cab


It's difficult getting it right once you veer off silver.
I was very tempted to go black copper but wary of selling the set on played it safe.

Yep, classy...

Couple of questions ? What colour car they going on and where can I get some of those centre caps ?


I have a basalt black 997 , if the colour combo doesn't work then i will sell them but already having the lobsters in high silver fancied a change .
The centre caps are genuine items from a set of 20 inch Carrera Classic 2s i currently have on the car .


It’s a tough one as I have them on my Silver C4S, but they should look great on the black 997, those classic 2’s tho are another difficult wheel to replicate, on the right car they look stunning

Car and wheels are now both gone but I'm very partial to a Fuchs.

Black wheels on white Smile

pretty pleased when reading this if these may be one of the lightest wheel choices as well!

Tried my recently refurbed sport designs on the car , totally changes the whole look , when they were silver thought the car looked a little tame Dont know certainly adds some purpose going darker

yes and yes. that looks great and that is the way I am going with mine over the winter once the summer wheels are off.

thanks for the pics as has convinced me to go dark grey/anthracite or sth similar to you.
