Whatever you go with, make sure you point the bottom of the crest at the valve stem. It's amazing how many people don't do that.

IMHO, no center caps is the way to go.

Man those are sweet.

I'd go for the blue 993 look as in the picture posted.

Thank you for every ones opinion , I decided to go with the factory color which is the steel gray centers, I'm keeping the old set for track days, Now I need to choice tire size, I going with the Falken FK452's just because I love the look of them , and I don't plan on driving aggressive with the new set of wheels, thats what the old set for .

So for the front I'm for sure going with 235/40/18 same as the factory 911GT , the factory also uses 285/35/18 the OD is 25.9 inchs on the rears, the other option is 295/30/18 the OD 25 inchs , right now I'm running F 245/45/17 and R 315/35/17 ( yes they or bigger ) the OD is 25.4 inchs , I'm thinking the 295/30 doesn't give much side wall , does any one have this size tires ?

I run 295's on my 965. I have no clearance issues between the tire/wheel opening lip/trailing arm. The sidewall is a little more vertical than the 285's.
