Sorry, but those are just ugly and overpriced. Why do they stick out like a wart? I'm sure others like them as much as you do, but I think they are hideous

Yea, even as a ricer, I can't agree to that.

Sorry but that looks wrong and way overpriced. It may be OK if it's for a deep dish wheel with the lug bolt holes covered up so it would look somewhat legit. I guess we all want what we don't have... GT3 wants to convert back from center-lock to lug bolts; 2011 GT3 RS 4.0 Hub Swap Photos - Photos of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 from 2011 - Road & Track

Madmods, you are certainly living up to your name lol, just kidding. IMO, many Porsche guys likely think "Less is More" when it comes to modding a P-Car, especially when the mod does not enhance performance or ease of use. Then there are guys like JD that occasionally want to succumb to pressure sensitive temptations, thankfully I talked him out of the fender portholes .

It's your car, do to it what you want. Just don't be too concerned about the approval of others.

For the record, I personally think the fake centers are hideous.

I've seen the black center cap on a Panamera's black wheel and I really went 'wow'. It is just so much more pleasant visually. and YES I do have good taste.... I just didn't know it was called a Ricer
Who cares what anyone else thinks? Do what makes you happy.

If painting flames on the front of your car gets you hard, get that thing in the paint shop and don't look back.

Probably would look better on a deep dish...
