That's a tough choice, but I'm going to have to go with the Black V-Spokes. I definitely want a black wheel, but I feel like the V-spokes look better than the regular black alloy wheels.

The wheels all look great, giving the customer lots of scope to create the look they want - black for more of a track feel (or just plain meaner looking!) silver for a more premium vibe. I am conflicted at the moment as I love the diamond cut wheel; there is a good reason they used this on the most heavily featured blue launch car - it looks incredible and also looks extremely modern, even futuristic, in a concept car kind of way. My only reservation is that this design might date more quickly than the others, as cutting edge designs often do.

Views everyone?

Agreed, the Diamond Cut gives you the best of both styles.

By the looks of the poll, I'm guessing the the Design 1 wheels won't be so popular 🤣

I don’t think it’ll date quickly. IMO the alloy ones look dated already, so bit of a moot point.

one needs a forged wheel to be safe with such low profile. Porsche 718's are all forged and the shop sees blown tires at 20" but not cracked wheels. I really suggest forged only for this badboy

I'm really torn between the Diamond Cut and the Gloss Black. I voted for Gloss Black, but I will probably end up going with the Diamond Cut wheels.
Same exact dilemma here. Been flip flopping for months. I'm currently thinking diamond cut forged from the factory with Goodyears since delivery will be fall/winter and will pick up forged black aftermarket set with Emira-specific Cup 2s for the warmer season.

Aren’t the Design 1 wheels only with the base models?
