Wheel Sizes

Does a Boxster S need to use 17" wheels or bigger? Or can 16" work.

Thanks

Boxster S needs 17 inch wheels to clear the brakes.

The stock 17's that I use for rain tires barely clear where the rear toe link bolts onto the upright (hub carrier), so I doubt a 16" would ever work. The best tire choices are 18"s anyway, so why try to us a 16" wheel?
