Maxspeed wheel spacers installed - impressions


Recommended Posts

Let me start by saying that I just got my Boxster S in February and just recently found this site. In just a few weeks I found so much invaluable and helpful information here at renntech, and also at babblers, so I'm trying to give a little back. It's not much, but those in the market for spacers should probably take the time to read this since it's hard to find out REAL information on these products. I also want to be very clear that I have nothing to do with the manufacturer or seller and have no vested interest. These are just my thoughts, and although I do not have any Porsche experience, I do have a lot of tuning experience so I'm pretty familiar with what is and is not a quality product.

This won't take long since there's not a ton to talk about, but please read if you're interested in widening your stance.

Install

Install of these wheel spacers is as easy as removing and reinstalling your wheels since all you're doing is putting a spacer on the hub before putting the wheel back on. Please note that the rear wheels have set screws included for the spacers making it even easier to install.

Quality, Looks, and Performance

The quality of these pieces is top notch. The cut of aluminum is gorgeous and the machining is very clean. They are a slightly different silver than the colour of the wheels but this is only noticeable if you're looking closely at the hubs.

Having a wider stance is much, much sexier in my opinion. I hated the gap between the outer wheel well and the actual wheel, it was just plain ugly. The front is a 7mm increase on each side and the rear is a 14mm increase on each side which seems perfect to me. I didn't have the foresight to take before and after pics, just after pics, so although you can't tell how dramatic a difference it makes without it-it still looks way way better!

Performance is also improved for turning. I have no way to measure this but it does feel like it sticks even better than before in the corners. The car is already great at handling, so although not necessary it is still a nice perk.

Final Thoughts

I am very happy with the spacers. My biggest complaint is that I felt they were a little pricey. I paid $350 for the spacers and the bolts together (the bolts are longer than stock so this is important). In reality it's probably a pretty fair price, but it still seems expensive to me :P

Either way they're a great upgrade to a great car! I highly suggest them if you have the cash.
