What are the sizes and off-sets of the Cayman wheels vs. what you currently have on your Boxster ? If you can provide this information, its easy enough to calculate.

Well, go grab a piece of paper, a pen, and walk over to where your Boxster is, and write down the numbers that are on each side of the tire valve stem.

One number will most likely be like this:

7.5
8.5

The other number might simply be:

55
51

Write down the numbers from both the front and rear wheels, and post that info on here, and we can help you from that point.

Also, if you have the same numbers from the Cayman, that would be quite nice, also.

BC.

Those look very nice on the Boxster...and look as though they belong, as well.

Am I to assume that these are the specs for your current Boxster wheels ? If, so, what are the sizes and offsets of the Cayman wheels that you are attempting to use ? Its important to have the specs for wheelsets in order to properly calculate the difference in fitment.
