If you want just the tiniest bit of bling, you can rely on painted calipers on a more open wheel design than a Fuch.

Or..............another way:

Style RSR 17 TRE Motorsports
Style RSR 17


Quote:
Most common is a 9 and 11 x 17" combination for the turbo / turbo look/ iroc rsr cars. Pricing is approximately $2400 a set depending on finish , lug nuts , and center caps desired, and we recommend running 245/45 and 315/35 front and rear tires respectively.
Wheels
Quote:
Coming soon ! 15" center lock RSR rims in a variety of widths and finishes (requires correct center lock adaptors and nuts available elsewhere)

17" two piece (cast center with spun aluminum outer rim) wheels that bolt on to your car ! NO adaptors , expensive wrenches, or center lock parts needed. Finally a bolt on rim with the aggressive factory race look to fill out the fenders on your 911. Available to order now !
.................................................. ...........


The above wheel shown in 17 inch was inspired by a 15 inch 917 wheel 5-spoke, and can be sourced from Penta Motorsports in 15 inch as I understand it. There also a couple of UK sources, but only in mono-hub as I recall.

Black FM5's are pretty cool too.

BBS LM wheels - Rennlist Discussion Forums


I think someone mentioned gold colored BBS for a reto look, not my personal thing.

http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/993-forum/787521-gold-or-anthracite-wheels-on-a-dark-green-993-nb.html



From the same thread above, the painted caliper look, which has been around so long that it is almost retro it's self.



Kind of a dorky idea, but perhaps a plaid pattern on the calipers?

I doubt it can withstand the heat of calipers though, could be how they did those VW wheels.

WOW, even though they are only 17s, the TRE Style RSR wheels above make the car look like it is rolling on wagon wheels (aka: looks terrible)!

And the water transfer stuff - gayer than Paul (and that's difficult to accomplish)!!!

I think that perhaps the polished wheel lips are accentuating the circumstances.

I tried my hand at blacking the rest of the wheel out, perhaps one of the Photoshop people can refine this idea a bit further.

What's the opinion on perhaps brushing the lips and clearing them so they stay nice? Since were way off topic anyway

Brandon, you're talking about giving the wheel lips a brushed/scuffed aluminum finish? If so, I'm a big fan of that, so think if would probably look good.

While out walking today it came to me, plaid mirrors.

Shortly after that I saw a BMW Z4 with Detroit Tigers mirror socks on, something I didn't even know existed.

Of course, the Mini Cooper ranks up there with the funky touch of what you can get away with in the spirit of fun. A Mini with plaid mirrors would be a natural, a 911 is a much more difficult call.

Many MINI Mirror Covers!


plaid and rollbar covers - North American Motoring


A mirror done as a vinyl wrap would be easily reversible.

I could have said "black face" wheel lips, then that would have some historic meaning.

I saw the photo (below) today and it reminded me of this thread.

Sorry, no plaid in it.

I've learned my lesson about photos of ugly. Ask Ronnie. It's got turbo flares getting fitted but that's not cute till it's primed at least.
I will say I have already nicked my oil cooler rubber line with the saw. What a dumbass. Didn't remove the cooler before diving in. That's me.
Never mind, go to bodywork and paint and look for metal flares thread.
