Mine were defenatly black on the inside as from factory, the face side was painted over what was origanaly an all black wheel.

Karmann had their own paint schemes so I'd imagine they ordered in plain black wheels and then paint them in their own paint shop, so its more than feasable that they adapted the colour boundaries to suit the trim that would be fitted to the rim as JD believes. Could not say for sure though?

Tks Peter. I'm going to go with black on the rest of the wheel.

I think you're right on the paint scheme as looking at a number of supposed OG wheels on cabrio's Karmann painted the majority of them the same as the saloon's.

My set have just received a new set of hubcap clips and rivets...black paint tomorrow!
