Picture of Wheels you have.

I am trying to decide on what wheels to get to upgrade my boxster from 17 to 18 or 19. I have seen many pictures of all of your cars and love the look and stance of many of them. Can you all show pics of your cars with the following information:

Wheel size (F/R):
Offset of Wheel(F/R):
What spacer size are you using if any (F/R):
Tire size (F/R):

I have looked for threads on this and could not find any.

Thanks in advance!

Always thought that these ones looked good. Chinese knockoffs for a 911 (winter) ET 40 10" X18" rear, and ET 50 with 10 mm spacers, 8"X18" fronts.

Heiko and Frontpage,

Can you also list your wheel offset/size and tire dimensions as well. These pictures are super useful, plus I am really enjoying seeing all of your cars :-)

I love my Rial Imolas. Real 2-piece German made wheels that look a lot like Porsche Cups or DP's but much less expensive, in part because they're not as popular. The hard part is finding a set.

18x8.5"
ET 50
No spacers
225/40/18

18x10"
ET unknown (the ET number was crossed out for some reason. My theory is that someone changed the lip which would've affected the offset)
5mm spacers (not needed, just wanted some extra clearance from the parking brake cables)
265/35/18

i have been running 8" front x 11" rear wheels on my track focused car with rolled fenders. I have a few "new" sets waiting for yellow paint in my garage. I intend to run 9" front and 11" rear with 265 wide front tires and 305 rears this season, to go with my new 3.8L engine build. This will involve some fender cutting and widebody kit.

Then there are Twenties.
Just silly imho, but it's the wife's car:
Rear: 20x11 ET52 with 275/30ZR20. I think it's a 7mm spacer.
Front tires: 225/30ZR20 can't remember the wheel size.
Heavy.
