Adding 18"s to the 986

If i were to add 18"s to my 2000 2.7 Boxster, would it be a simple job for a garage to carry out? would there need to be adjustments to suspension/steering?

Thanks

J

I put 19'z on my '99 with eibach lowering spring. No problem with clearance. If you are putting 18'z with stock suspension, there is no problems or adjustments needed.

Nope, 18's were an option. My 01' has 18" turbo twists, stock.
