Tyres are a definite no go, far too big rolling radius.

But wheel diameter at 18 inches is fine. So we just need the wheel width and offsets...

Worked for me.



I have a 01 S.

No spacer in the rear and a small one in the front.

Well, with exception. I'm running 235/40 18 on the front and 265/40 18 on the rear. Michellin Pilot Super Sports.

Depending upon offset, the wheels may fit just fine, but the Panamera tire sizes are way off for a Boxster.

The OEM for 18 is 225/40 18 and 265/35 18.

I opted to fill out the wheel well tiny bit at the same time gain a slightly wider contact patch. The sizes I have does fit but the above are the OEM in case you want to go that way.
