I have ordered my 718C with the 19" Boxster S wheels. I am thinking about powdercoating them titanium grey. Can anyone here photoshop the wheels, so I can see what they would look like on my car? Since I do not have the car yet, here is a car spec'ed like mine to use.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Why don't you go on the Porsche website car configurator and spec the car out with platinum satin under wheel accessories. Although, I don't think you Boxster S wheels are available painted, have to specify the 20 inch Carrera S wheels but gives you the same effect. I had mine done by Porsche dealer after delivery in plat satin but on carmine red. Not sure on black, probably better with satin black wheels.

I tried the Porsche Configurator, but only the 20' Carrara wheels can be viewed in Platinum Satin. The Boxster S wheels have more metal, so I am curious how they would look. The car is actually Night Blue Metallic, so I think Platinum Satin would look good, but would love to see a photoshop mockup.

Not sure if it helps but on a common internet tire sales site (Are we allowed to site names?) you can configure your car and color with similar wheels they sell. you can select the color of both. There could be something similar that might help.

I also have the bright 19's and am tempted to go black. The dealer stated they could get mine powder coated in any color I wanted for 250$ per wheel.

250$ per wheels seems to be expensive.
Go to a shop which is specialized for that. I asume they will take only half of the money.

Your dealer will do the same....

Locally, I’ve gotten prices of $150/wheeel. I’m going to go with black chrome on mine in a couple of months.

Did you 150 include removal and re balancing of the tire? for 150$ I can't be more than 2 hours from anywhere in NJ.

Thanks

I found one place good ratings
$400 if you just bring the wheels
$500 if the wheels have tires on them
$600 if you bring you car with the wheels

$500/$600 include balancing, removal and all of that jazz.

I’ll go for the $500 option since my wheels are in storage.

Viffermike's car is also Night Blue Metallic, like my order. It looks great with the powdercoated Cayman S wheels. I am just wondering if the Boxster S wheels will be too much black or Platinum? That is why I was asking for someone to try an photoshop my pic. I am also going with a 40% ceramic tint, just like his car, since Mike's car looks so good.

Here is Viffermike's car (I hope he doesn't mind me sharing these photos from another thread)

Thanks, @Sails Call! I don't mind at all! :D

FYI: Prices will vary regionally for powdercoating wheels. $600 for all four, inclusive (Removal, tire removal, stripping, coating, tire remounting/balancing, reinstallation) sounds fair in NJ. For my BMW about three years ago, I paid a little more than $500 for that in the Dallas area by a wheel specialist with a good reputation (i.e. recommendations on other car forums, Yelp, etc., all buoyed by a number of exotics in the garage when I went).

I had the dealer do my Cayman's wheels for, well, more than that (about $1k). I considered it a convenience up-charge since it was added to the car's sale price as a dealer-installed option, and (This is a big 'and') it included a set of four black colored-crest center caps, which run about $125 a set. Black ones are not easy to find. I'd contact a Porsche dealer who can source a set for you and tack it onto the cost, OP.
