Wheel spacers ? The good and the bad please

Recommended Posts

I ordered my 2006 Boxster S with the factory OEM spacers 5mm. I did this for a few reasons:

1) To be different (looks wise)

2) It was NOT that expensive in Porsche dollars (<$500)

3) To slightly pull the wheels (5 spoke Carrera Classics) away from the big reds for easier cleaning and detailing purposes

You WILL NOT see any performance difference unless your name is Patric Long!

Make sure you purchase the longer & proper wheel bolts.

I installed H&R 7 and 14 mm on my '06 C2S about 80,000 km ago. Ii have both the19" lobster claws and Tire rack winter rims. I am running 305's in the rear which stick out about 1/4" with no rubbing issues whenfully loaded or driven aggresively. Car is not lowered.. No apparent change in handling but gives it an agreessive stance. Make sure that new bolts are long enough and have the same domed collar as factory. Hope this helps. Cheers...
