I found them on ebay as a take off from an 06 S. I think I got a great deal, they were $2k with new tires shipped to my door in Tx. I still have my old 17's, I would like to sell them. I was going to post here later today - $500.

Here are some pics of the old rims and tires. Let me know if youre interested.

I have a confession to make...

When seen on a 987 in the "wild", I often confuse the 19" Carrera S wheels with the 18" Boxster S wheels.

Does this make me a bad person? Could I get a hug?...

Interesting--my friends have all told me the same things whenever I've pointed out that I kind of wished I bought the 19" wheels.
