Wisest Possible wheels

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

New here and I was wondering.....I have a 02 Boxster S with 3 piece RH wheels 18X10 in the rears, I am running factory P-zeros w/ 225/40zr 18 in front and 265 /35zr 18 in the rears. The rims are made for 996's so I have 15mm spacers in the rear so they fit.

My question is what is the widest tire I can fit on the rear. I think a 285/30 zr 18 will fit, but can a 295/30 zr 18 fit? I can get a set of these for virtually free and wanted to know if they would fit....any help is greatly appreciated.

Awesome wheels, Tom. My Technos and spacers came in today but I was too busy to open them. I'll probably get to it on Thursday morning so I'll post some pics when they're mounted. Between the wheels and all the other stuff I did to the car lately it should be a nice finished product!

:jump: :drive:

How much do the sport techno wheels weigh? Are the spokes hollow as w/ the turbo wheels?

Stryke, do you have a close up of the rear wheel or even a rear 3/4 shot? Curious to see how the wide the rim is in relation to the tire. Thanks -

I don't have close ups of the wheel. If you tell me exactly the angle you want I'll snap some and post them for you. The spokes on these are hollow and they are lighter than my old Turbo Twists even though they are wider. :)

Now what you need are a set of 355mm Brembos. Here you can see mine peeking out from underneath my Sport Technos. They barely fit, the wheel weights would hit if they weren't the slim versions. I had bad brake fade at Sebring with the stock brakes (even with Super Blue and racing pads), they pretty much suck for anything other than street.

Oh yeah! I keep forgetting about those actually. I see you have the short-shift, I swear it's one of the best upgrades for the car. It's got such a more positive feel to it, It's handy for both street and track. I will throw on a set of the Euro clear side markers, probably this week.
