Does my 02 boxster have TPMS?

I'm looking to upgrade my wheels soon, also is victor equipment a good brand? I'm leaning towards their 19" turismo hyper silver any pics guys?

I just put 18" Turismo's on, and am very happy with the quality. Have only put a few miles on them, so I can't speak to the durability, though.

I don't know if 986s had an option for TPMS, though. Mine certainly doesn't.

No TPMS, Porsche introduced it for 2006 models.

Victor Equip. Is a great brand. Very expensive.

aftermarket TPMS

Installed a set with my last set of tires - about $100, brand is "Orange Electronics" - really nice info on tire temps and pressures, lets me know when it's ok to really start driving.

Funny, I got them because I thought they were more reasonably priced! You can easily buy a set of Victors for around what a single HRE goes for! (Ok maybe not the best comparison, but they are still significantly less expensive than BBS, and a bit less than OZ).
