Show me the rims

New to the forum and in talks with buying boxster for my first car. I always posted places what I drive but its my wife that drives me. My dad crashed a saab 900 turbo and it put me off driving for life

Here is what I would tell my wife and family " I am never driving until I buy a Porsche" Well its looks like my prophecies are coming true so now driving a short while I am getting one.

All the Boxsters I see have wheels as small as my skate board so I want to start this thread for my own idea's

Gentlemen SHOW ME THE RIMS !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Replica carrera lights in black plasti-dip (rear replica CLs are more convex than concave)

Real turbo twists in black and real sport designs, stock color) Lowering the car makes the wheels look bigger, as they fill the wheel wells.


Turbo twists in silver

They are 3-piece SSR GT3 semi-solid forged wheels made with Porsche specific offsets.
I'm not sure if they make them in Porsche sizes anymore. Here's a closer shot...
