read the description on this older boxster and then look at the pictures of the rims.

How much stuff can you hit and rub against your hub caps?

You've got to wonder how well something will sell when there are so many mis-spellings. Tirers, a wind gaurd, and hub caps? HUB CAPS?

Yikes.

Sounds like the seller is not an automotive enthusiast at all and most likely got the Boxster for the Porsche name. Sadly it happens too much these days and "we", the enthusiast Boxster owners, get stuck with having others give us the "stink eye" because of our choice. It is nothing to get bent out of shape over, so the seller used the wrong terminology and misspelled words. Not the best way to make a sale but who is to say that they are not foreign and have not yet mastered the English language?

Awww...you guys are just being too rough on the poor Honda convert

Tirers = old tires.

wind gaurd: Well, when you have Tirers, you can't go fast enought to need a wind guard.

We do have hub caps, they are just of the $3600 a set variety. They do cover the hub after all...
