What size are my rims? (16 or 17)

Recommended Posts

sounds like a stupid question, eh? Here is why I don't know...

I have not taken delivery of my used 986 yet and the previous owner is a young lady who is clueless off the chart. She at least knew enough to tell me that her mechanic stated the tires were bald. I don't even want to begin to ask her what tire size it had and where to look!

Here is a photos and from all my research it appears that these only came in a 17" rim, I think someone called these "twist" rims.

I want to place an order with tirerack.com so the tires are here when the car arrives this weekend. Hate to order them only to find out this rim also came in 16"!

anyone 100% sure?

My car photos from the online sale will help you answer me:

There are 17 pictures in the album that you linked to, called 1997 Porsche 986.


Looking at just the wheel pictures I see 3 different Boxsters and wheels. None of them are 16" wheels. I see the 17" 2.5 twist. 17" Boxster S. And what looks like the 18" turbo look.
