Boxster Wheel Options

Guys, is there a thread out there that has pictures of 986's with Porsche factory wheels that fit without modification, such as spacers, fender rolling, etc.?

Thanks!

I'd...

...just buy a Boxster brochure for your model year off eBay. It will have pics of them.

$20? maybe?

Any wheel with bolt pattern 5x130 will fit properly with an ET (offset) of around 50.
ET 40 something will push the wheels out without the need for spacers.

This is a handy guide to OEM wheels. If you select a wheel of the same or similar diameter, offset, and width, then it is highly likely to fit without modification.

But if you're looking for a guide to wheels that will fit without modification that are of a different diameter, offset, and/or width, then this won't help much and unfortunately, I don't think that list exists.

This site is kinda neat for comparing sizes of wheel/tire combinations. Won't confirm if they'll fit in the wheel well, clear brakes, etc, but you can get an idea if you're way off base or not.
