16-inch 2003 Boxster rims on 2003 Boxster S
 
I need to drive my 2003 Boxster S temporary with a set of 16-inch from a Boxster.
Would it fit? I'm concern about the oversize brake on the S may touch the 16-inch rims.

16" rims will not fit the S, you won't even be able to put the rims on the car.

Bump incase anyone else was wondering. Almost just bought a set of base 16" box wheels to store my car with and sit on for 6 months

Another way to go is to source some 7x17 Boxster wheels, of which there is a massive oversupply. All the BSR race cars run 8.5x17 square these days so they have piles of 7x17s out behind their shop. This is a perfect wheel for a DD or winter wheel where there is no benefit to go wider than 225.

205/225 is a nice setup for DD or winter wheels.
