Not exactly bronze (not mine either), but I do like the wheel color on black.



996...more subtle.

Bronze is an excellent and understated choice for dark colored cars imo.

OK, it's more golden, but also great and my favorite: Porsche Headlight Retrofit [from CAD, prototyping to finish)

I know you're looking for wheels, but a friend of mine did his calipers on his 944T in bronze. I liked them. His wife didn't ,so now they're red. Bronze looks good on a black car.

My black 996 has dark bronze wheels courtesy of the PO. I'm not real fond of the look and will be changing them out this spring.

1985 635CSi. Manual, black leather.

It's my weekend cruiser when I want to drive something different.

And you can just see the butt end of my '84 928S in front of it. Sometimes my driveway looks pretty Miami Viceish.

The 911 with the bronze wheels is my inspiration. That is Larry Kosilla who owns AMMO NYC detailing. He now does videos for the /DRIVE channel on youtube. His 911 is great. Thats the look I am going for.
