Wheel Dynamics sells very nice Porsche replica wheels (new) at a reasonable price. A number of members at this forum have purchased their wheels with nothing but positive feedback, so you may want to check on them.

What do you consider "nice and cheap"? Those two items don't usually go together esp. in Porsche world.

You can have one or the other and you are lucky to get both.

Good luck.

There are some nice Miro 19" rims for sale on e-bay right now for something like $8-900. Without tires of course. Those are the ones everyone seems to be getting now days. You will need a 7mm rear wheel spacer for them to fit right.

ok..

Now.. Factory 18s? or aftermarket 18s? Widths? finish?

As you know, there are tons of different styles of wheels. I imagine genuine used Porsche (OEM) 18's would run$300-$500 per rim, plus tires. New would run you closer to $3k. Quality Aftermarket likely the same numbers. I know some folks out here are running a "knock off" of the 18" Carerra lightweights and seem to love them. Just can't recall what they are running, dollar wise.

Check here. http://wheeldynamics.net/index.html Carlos has a nice selection, including a bunch of new stuff that wasn't available when I bought my rims from him. He also has great prices and excellent customer service.

Forum members are giving you the std avenues for new wheels, so here are some suggestions for used:

Have you looked in the forum classifieds? A quick check found a set in LA.

http://986forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11328

Also, not up on my CA geography but if you live in the greater LA area, LA Dismantlers may have something. I've never had much luck communicating with them but maybe they don't want to deal with me since I'm in the middle of the US. You may have better luck since you're a local.

You haven't said why you are looking - are your old wheels beat up, looking for track day wheels, wanting to upgrade from 17's, etc. Giving us a little more info would help narrow down the choices. Also, what year is your Box?

+1 on jwilson95's comment. Inexpensive and Porsche wheels are mutually exclusive. Be prepared to spend some bucks.
