found these wheels for good price but

I don't know anything other than they are 18" and were pulled from a Porsche. The seller hasn't responded yet to my inquiry, but I thought I might get ahead of the game by inquiring here.

Can anyone identify these rims?

1st gen Cayenne wheels. I would GUESS they are at least 3 lbs. heavier than a comparable Boxster wheel. Don't know if same bolt pattern.

Yeah those are Cayenne wheels. Probably 8x18 with a 57 offset. Porsche uses the same 5x130 bolt pattern. They'd make some decent winter wheels, but you would have to runs some spacers.

Those look pretty roughed up to me.

Not what you would want for summer time wheels.

There are some good 17s for sale right now in the classifieds and there is a nice set of Cayman S 18s on eBay for $999.

If anyone is looking for custom factory wheels check my pic out. One of our sister companies ( Trans Wheel ) straightened, repaired, and painted ( guards red ) my wheels. The center caps were my task, but no biggie. . I wouldn't swear to it but think the general publics cost is right at $300 a piece. I painted the barrels black to make the red stand out more.
