Will 996 BBS Lightweight Wheels fit on 986?

Will BBS Lightweight wheels (5 x 130) from a 996 fit a 2002 Boxster?

As long as the offset and width are correct, it should. What are those figures?

You will need spacers for the rear.

Thanks to Deserion and Byprodriver for your feedback.

I received the Size info from the seller of the wheels I’m looking at. The wheel sizes are 8Jx18H2 - ET57 and 10Jx18H2 - ET58.

I currently have the original 17” Boxster wheels installed.

Any additional thoughts on fitment and wheel spacer sizes would be appreciated.

Joe

Porche approved ETs for your 986 depending on wheel size

You will need spacers all around. This can add a significant amount to the price of your wheels.

Thanks to all for your feedback and guidance. Adding spacers certainly changes the total price when also considering new tires and mounting.
