Post Pics. Boxsters with Rims.

I don't know if there is a thread like this already, but I want to see aftermarket rims on the Porsche Boxster.

The stock rims are a bit boring and I want to buy rims next year. It is hard to find the style I want with the Porsche bolt pattern.

So start posting. Lets see some rims.

Has anyone tried a staggered fitment, with 18's front & 19's rear? The Corvette and Lotus does this, among others. The Diameters would still match OEM, but give equal sidewall heights Fr. to Rear.

Actually by staggered I mean different diameters front and rear, not tires stretched on wide rims. The only reason I ask is that I'd be afraid of damage to low profile 19" front rubber on N.J. roads.

Thanks for the complement . As a result of the project, somewhere in Germany someone has a new swimming pool.

I was hoping for more car pics. Oh well. Has anyone tried using adapters so they can put rims with different bolt patterns on?

I plasti-dipped my rims for winter to protect them from salt, brake dust, chips and for looks.

19's look so good! is there a huge driving difference though? is it so noisy with road noise and rough? can you just slap 19's on? or do you have to do modifications?

Tuan,

As long as the wheels have the correct width, bolt pattern, and offset you can slap them right on. I went from 17's to 19's and love the look. Many think they look out-of-place on a Boxster.

Generally, the bigger wheels and tires are heavier than their smaller counterparts and you can definitely feel a difference in performance. It just takes more energy to get the bigger, heavier wheels and tires turning so the car feels more sluggish off the line.

I didn't notice much more road noise but they generally ride rougher due to the smaller, stiffer sidewalls. The larger tires are more expensive too.

ProjectM96,

The car looks good. I know how hard it is to maintain black paint and it looks like you are doing a great job.

How did you go about plastic dipping the wheels? Are you going to remove it in the spring? If so, how will you do it? Lastly, is there enough material on the wheels to worry about wheel balance?

Thanks,

ddb
