Looking for wheel suggestions

As the title says, I am looking to change out my current wheels on my 2003 S. The previous owner had a regular habit of hitting curbs so I have some rash and some bends on my current wheels. I've done the repair and repaint and they came out alright but I'd rather just go with something new.

I'd like to go with wheels and tires and keep it under 2k if possible, the further under 2k the better.

I've seen some on Ebay offerring wheels with Nexen's installed and balanced and am considering going that route but am open to suggestions. (very appealing since I live in the middle of no where)

Car is White and I'd love to go with black wheels but I'm not sure if that will look right with the lighter top that I have.

It all depends upon what you want and what your tastes are. Here are a couple of sites with lots of pictures of wheels, as well as the wheels on cars:

http://www.wheelenhancement.com/index.php?t=Wheels

http://www.wheeldynamics.net/

Tire Rack and Discount Tire Direct also sell wheels for Boxsters, and if you're going to buy tires anyway, you can get them delivered with the tires already mounted. Both of their websites let you put the wheels on a picture of a Boxster.

You can also check on eBay, but you really have to know what you are buying, ask all the right questions, and be sure that you're dealing with someone reputable (check the feedback).

Have fun!

+1 on wheeldynamics.com

I bought my aftermarket Carrera lights from them and got excellent service.

The turbos from wheeldynamics.com would look great on your car (IMHO):
