my 19 inch wheels

hey there LB350, congrats on your S!!
my wheels~~~~ SSR 3 piece forged rims.
they are 19 x 8.5 for front, 19 x 9.5 in the rear. offsets were 46mm in the front and 43mm in the back. got it all done at wheel enhancement in culver city. yeah, i am in LA too. and i had a 03' 350z Touring in black.
dealer recommends 48mm offset in the rear, according to their manual but the wheel guys recommended 40mm, so i compromised.
i had the wheels, tires, dansk exhaust, eibach springs, powerflow intake system done at wheel enhancement. they do excellent work. but i have a friend, he is a freelance auto interior guy, who could have hooked me up with the same wheels and tires for about 2 grand. i paid about 3500.00 for my wheels and tires.

I love the new Boxster wheels also. I called wheel enhancement and was told they would not fit. Maybe they have done some more research on the matter. They do look great.

the 18" 987 wheels fit.

you need some longer lugs and possibly a spacer.

Click on my signature link, there is a picture of one 986 with 987 wheels
