I want to buy a set of wheels for the track to do DE's and the like but I don't want to spend $3.5k doing it. Any suggestions on where to get wheels? Are there other Porsche wheels that will fit the 987?

that auction site e...something...

We were successful for under $700 for older TT Porsche wheels and use spacers to make the offset right -- light weight great track wheels for race rubber.

Good luck,

Ed

What I have done is purchased take-offs or second-hand OEM wheels to use with my cars since you can put slightly larger width tires (MPSC or Hoosier) that give a huge advantage over street rubber. Spacers have taken care of any offset difference (like using my C4 wheels on my C4S). I don't know what the stock sizes/offsets are for the Boxster, but I imagine that they are not that different from 997 and 996 fitments.

I have a set of wheels for sale off of my narrow body C4 996 (they were called Turbo-look when I ordered them, but now seem to be called Technology), that I used as my track wheels. The other ones ones I bought went when I traded the car. The wheels are straight but have been used as track wheels so there are some light scuffs from trailering, etc., but they still look great from 3+ feet. They have 1/2-used Michelin Pilot Sport Cups mounted on them that have much depth left, but the tires are over 2 years old so either test them first at an autocross or bring a backup set of tires to a track event just in case they will not soften up with some heat. I just bought a GT3 and will be looking for a set of wider take-offs, so if anyone is interested in these, PM me and I'll go look at the offsets and exact size (I'm pretty sure they are 18x8 and 18x10s). I can send pictures in the next day or two.
