I tlooks like it was kind of like a pin striping job on the out rim to create that time attack look. I just recently painted my wheels black myself! would love to give the time attack stripe a try but i don't have steady hands...

Maybe I misunderstood and the wheels were not machined at all for the outer silver finish, just masked up and painted?

Looks nice very nice, one thing I saw out here that looked different was cayenne in matt black it looked cool...any ideas if this offered at the factory or just get out the sandpapaer and go made on the gloss finish?

Thanks guys.

Roadfrog - as far as I know, the shop painted the time attack with usual masking technique.

Omodos - my rims were originally silver color. I got it painted in matt black with the thin silver boarder.
