Victor Equipment Wheels


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

i have just purchased a base 97, it has come on the upgrade 17' but am looking at changing them

has anyone have any experience with Victor Wheels?

our choices are very limited here in OZ for quality aftermarket wheels for porsche most are cheap replica wheels.

Does anyone have any pics with these wheels?

Also what size would be better for daily driving 18" or 19"

thanks

dsisco:

Before you make that purchase, read the caution given by Porsche against using wheels that are larger than 17" on a 1997 Boxster.

In 1998, the rear bulkhead and other suspension components were beefed up to safely accommodate wheels larger than 17"

IMO, 18" is probably okay if you are not driving the car anywhere near its limits, but 19" is going too far.

For daily driving, the ride provided by the ultra-low aspect ratio of the 19" tires (to maintain the circumference as near as the original) would make for a ride that is too rough for most, especially on anything but the smoothest roads.

Regards, Maurice.

Hi

I have Victor Equipment Turismo on my '00 986 S.

8x18" front and 9.5x18" rear (ie the boxster fitment they offer..)

I wouldn't mind a bit more aggressive offset but for the money these are OK. Worth noting it says "made in China" on the back.. but absolutely no problems for normal use and I've been to the track a few times as well.
