2000 Boxster for sale question

Honda dealer has this 2000 for sale.

Anyone know what wheels are on this car, kinda looks like 997 19". Looks too big for a 986.

Thanks

Len

Look like 997 Turbo wheels - much too big for optimum handling.....

I'd say they are R-55's from Wheel Dynamics and not an OE wheel.

Thanks, those look like the ones.

Definitely agree they are way to big. I might go look at the car anyway, but would want to find a nice set of Sport Classic 17's or Boxster II's

Get 18's they make the car look and handle better. Those look like they are for a 911, not for a Boxster.
