I am thinking about getting a chrome exchange for my 2002 boxster s. I have 17" turbo style oem wheels now. I was going to do the chrome exchange with LA Wheels but they don't have my wheel in stock. They offered to let me trade to a different porsche wheel. I found one that I like from a carrera. It's a 17" as well. The front wheel is the same size and the rear is 1/2" wider. The offset is slightly different on the rear and should stick out only 1mm from stock. They should clear on the inside of the wheel fine.

You can see the wheels and info at


My question is does anyone see any problem with this switch? I don't know if the wheels are any heavier or any other reason I should be concerned. I thought about going to an 18" wheel but I'm pretty happy with the ride now and don't want to sacrifice any comfort of the ride by moving to 18s. Plus I don't have to buy tires now.

Thanks for any opinions or comments.

Those wheels came out in the early 90's (94 possibly on the 928 GTS) I think those will really date your car, in a BAD way!

They belong on 993's and 928's and are referred to as "Cup II's". I would look for something else


Point well taken. Thanks for the save.

How about these? They are also 17" so the tires will work and I think they look good too!

But then again I am biased as my 2006 came with the same wheels... LA Wheel does a chrome exchange for them as well if you want more bling.
