    New rubber, new look!

    I was needing new rubber on the 911. Decided to pull my HRE`s off and change up the look a little!

    I Plasti dipped my factory BBS wheels. This is the 3rd time that I`ve done this. First time I went with Anthracite, then gold with the Anthracite base and now gold with a yellow base. I am very pleased with how they turned out and love the look!!




    Factory:




    Yellow base going down:

















    First coat of gold getting sprayed on:





















    Old rubber:





    (such a shame the fronts have so much tread left and the rears wear much quicker!)

    Nice job. Looks great.

    How hard is it to get the overspray off the tires ? And tips or tricks ? I would have taped them off.

    It looks great Scott. They turned out great, and really set the car off. I`d be interested in a review of those ps91`s too.
    Making someone else happy, is one of the best feelings.

    Sizzle Chest:
    The above question is the same one I have: how do you get Plasti dip off the tires? Do you pre-treat the tires with a "release agent"?
    Was this Plasti Dip done to protect the rims and make brake dust removal easier from track time driving or racing??

    Are the center-cap Porsche insignias (insigniae?) difficult to remove from the rim and then re-install? Snap-fit, because I see the two holes in the center??

    New tires look like Kumho`s Ecsta PS91`s to replace the Pirelli`s. Why this particular tire? Affordability? Performance? Tread wear longevity?

    As a Porsche aficionado, I LOVE the iconic 911. However, I am not enamored with the gold wheel color with the dark grey/anthracite paint color, but that is just me and my personal taste; (Oh, so Captain Obvious is now a Porsche Color Scheme Critic. Who made you the Porsche fashion police??) Hey, it is your 911 and you can do with it as you see fit (Thank you very much!) I do think the "Martini "corporate color striping/logo gives your 911 some distinctiveness and uniqueness. (Make-up compliment, Captain Obvious??) I cannot win...

    (Hey, Captain Obvious, you would drive & own any 911 in ANY color combo if you could "reasonably" afford it)

    Side note: looking forward to your reviews and comments on your new cordless Flex XCE 10-8 I saw in "Unboxing Pictures" thread post #4091!!

    Thanks for the replies!!

    It peels off pretty easily from the tires...as long as you dress them prior to spraying! Next time I will tape off them as well to assist in the removal.

    I`ve seen great reviews on them and will post up what I think!!



    Captain Obvious: As long as the tires are slathered with dressing, it peels off pretty easily. I did it just for aesthetics. I like changing up the look every now and then. (when I need new rubber).

    Center caps come off easily, yes, just a new snap fit. Porsche has a special tool for removal available.

    Mrs. Sizzle had the idea of the Martini Livery! Such a great woman! We both love it as we/she was getting bored with the `plain` looking Agate Grey color. Thought about wrapping the whole car, but I`m a paint guy!!!!

    I chose those tires for a number or reasons: price, performance, great reviews, nice looking sidewall.

    And...I love GOLD!!!
