I am new also and enjoy the forum. For what it is worth my MY06 S has 18 in wheels and the ride and handling are more than adequate. To me the car handles like a dream. I believe others are right, the larger the tires, the lower the profile and the more harsh the ride is. So you have to factor all of this in.
Thanks a lot, that does help. I don't have the feel and want to make sure the work is done right. This forum is great.
Hi: I am new to this forum and find the topics to be excellent. I just bought a used 2006 Boxster S and love it. I am interested in doing some maintenance on the car, including brake pad replacement. Would you recommend a decent torque wrench for use for this work and any other special "must have" tools for the job? What is the minimum dimension for replacing the front and rear discs? What is the typical life for brake pads considering many different driving styles? Regards and thanks in advance.
