Boxster S OEM Wheels

Greetings,

Do these wheels have a specific name and/or part number? I'd like to find a set for my '98, provided they will fit.

Thanks!

Those are 987 wheels, not same offsets as 986 specification.

The official name for those wheels is Boxster S II. As TStone pointed out, they're a 987 18" wheel.



The more popular 18" wheel on a 987 was the Cayman S wheel.



Either of these wheels should work on a 986. There have been various threads here talking about fitting them on 986s.

Here are lobster claws.



And Jay wanted to throw me out because I own 987s. Where would you get your 987 content w/o me?
