My deadline for ordering my first ever porsche is coming up.
Can’t decide what finish for the wheels
It’s either black satin or platinum satin for me
What finish goes better with gentian blue in your opinion
Thx
Personally, I think the satin black looks so good against the Gentian Blue. Can’t go wrong with either really but the black plays so well against the darker blue.

I think brighter and lighter is the way to go with a darker colored paint for the car. Either way, congratulations on the purchase. Look forward to seeing some posts.

Platinum or Silver.

If you're worried about brake dust, get Hawk ceramic street pads. Silver wheels are no problem with them. I have platinum. Stock pad's dust still shows...so I got the Hawks and really like them for street.

..NOT FOR TRACK USE. They're not good for repeated hard stops. Otherwise, perfect pads.

I think both look excellent. The black looks a bit sportier and meaner. The platinum looks a bit more classy.

One thing for sure....
With flat black wheels, it doesn't matter which design you get. The wheels just disappear in the wheel wells!
