    I’m thinking about changing my wheels, I’d prefer OEM options so my choices so far are;

    788’s smoked, complicated design and a pain in the ass to clean
    [​IMG]

    437’s a great wheel, lighter than M2C OEM although they just make the car look like the original M2 and not a competition
    [​IMG]

    763’s nice design, light weight although I dislike fully black wheels so would end up repainting something like ferric grey or orbit grey - possibly to much grey with Hockenheim Silver
    [​IMG]

    666m’s albeit in a smoked finish not silver, ok design, slightly more open than the 788’s but I can imagine still a pig to clean. Concerned that 20’s plus the additional weight will ruin the ride quality and handling

    And painted a nice shade of Porsche satin platinum.

    763's, but a nice set of 437s do look good but as you say they look like standard m2s

    Personally i wouldn't put 666m on, they are too big and heavy being 20" but i do like the look of them if they made them in 19". I have fitted 763m's as they are light and suit Hock silver, but i sometimes think i preferred the car with the smoked 788m.

    How do you find the Matt finish on the 763M's? I'm struggling to like it they constantly look dirty

    Thanks! They're powdercoated and done at South West Wheel Repairs in Exeter... forgotten how much but it didn't break the bank.
