Great choice, Andrew. I like my wheels, but if I ever upgraded I would go for the same 19" turbos. Where did you purchase them? Any spacing or adjustments needed or just bolted on?

Nice!

What are your wheel widths and tire sizes?

Is it lowered?

I got everything from Ebay, the tail lights are about 170$ and the 19 inch rims are about 760$ with tax. I didn't lower the car and for the size i'm not sure because I let the local rims shop did everything to me.

I love the turbo rims so much

here's some more of my car, just installed red soft top with glass window






In love

Nice bold look with the red top!!!

I was never a fan of these wheels on the 997, but it is looking pretty nice on your Boxster!
