600 miles on my '17 Impact blue...love it love it love it.

I have never been a fan of black wheels, though. Can't change. So, at some point, I'll need to do something about that.

I'm not finding much in aftermarket wheel choices for the car...at least not listed as direct fitment from reputable vendors.

Right now, it seems my options are:

1.Have stock wheels painted or powdercoated a lighter color.

This is probably simplest and cheapest.

2.Wait for some PP2 take-offs.

These look very nice...it seems from the data that they might be a direct swap? Do I have this right?

3.Wait for the aftermarket to come up with some choices.

I guess I might be hoping in vain if it hasn't happened already.


Thoughts/advice?

With as much brake dust our cars put out a lighter wheel will show it even worse unless you go to ceramic pads then possibly won't have all the brake dust. I never had a car before that the brake dust was so awfully bad.

Ditto, my Carrera S had lighter wheels and the brake dust was a nightmare! 20 miles after painstakingly cleaning the wheels they'd be awful looking again. I was very pleased we have the black wheels as they don't show the brake dust (as quickly) as the Porsche did... If I were to change anything, I'd likely have them powder coated the EXACT color of brake dust ;). Seriously, these wheels are matched to the GT350 and I'd be hesitant to go aftermarket so if I were to change them I'd likely go the powder coat route, good luck, Sir!

By the way welcome to the forum and congrats on your new GT350! Post pics of your new ride in the Intro section if you haven't already done so.

Heavy brake dust is the reason Ford only outfits any vehicle with Brembo Brakes with Black Wheels. It’s a nightmare of complaints in the service drive.

You know where to get ceramic pads? Everyone I have asked has said they don't make them for this car.

EBC is coming out with their Red pads for us. Awesome pad. I've got a guy on the inside. Currently trying to pin down an availability date and see if he can help me do a group buy for us. I've had Red's on two other cars. Amazing pad and what I would label as zero dust.

As for black wheels on this car...just my own personal $0.02, but this car was built for black wheels. There's a few pics floating around of guys going with another color and to me it just throws off the entire car. Don't really know how, but I've yet to see something other than black that I liked, regardless of style. But, to each his own.

I think you'd be happy if you added some color to the wheels area. That's why I'm painting my calipers to give it some color.
