Wheel size question

Recommended Posts

Yes, 18"x10" are common aftermarket upgrades for Boxsters. 19"s will fit as well. The question, or issue, is proper offsets. That is, where the front of the wheel mounts to the hub in relation to the overall width of the wheel. e.g. center, close to the front, closer to the back. ect.

Mark, thanks. I wasn't sure if 18X10s were too wide for the fenders.

I have an offset guide to help. Now the question is 18" or 19"... If the profile is too low, i'm gonna be kicking myself in the rear. NJ roads are HORRIBLE!

I have a 2000 S with factory upgraded turbo look 18"s. I just purchased 18"x8" and 18"x10 Gemballa competition wheels. After much research the general rule seems to be 19" may "look" better to some but functionally are, infact, not as effective in terms of overall performance. That does not even address the relative vulnerability to damage of 19"
