16 inch wheels over Boxster S / Carrera calipers
 
Someone requested a picture of Boxster S / Carrera calipers under 16 inch wheels. Here is my setup with Carrera calipers, 321mm rotors, and 16 inch wheels. This is on my Audi. I wish I could find some 16's for my Boxster S, so I can use these 16 inch slicks I have. Anybody know of any 16 inch options?

I have heard and read many times that you cannot fit 16 inch wheels on a 986 Boxster S suspension and calipers.

Yep, that was me who requested.

So you have 321mm rotors, w S / Carrera calipers under 16" wheels on an Audi all secured by a single wheel alignment bolt. Fantastic and lots of clearance I see - LOL :D

Hey, just buy some spacers with extra long wheel bolts and make 'em fit on your Boxster S too. You'll be fine so long as your tire OD's match front to rear...

Good luck

The wheels have slicks on them, so I only use them for the track. I only put one wheel on for a photo as a favour to you. I didn't see a point in bolting it down since it wasn't staying on.

There's not a lot of clearance, but enough for it to run with no issues. Boxster S discs are 318mm, so there would technically be even more clearance on the Boxster S than on the Audi.

16-inch wheels certainly provide enough space inside them for the Boxster S brake setup, so I don't see why 16-inch wheels wouldn't work on the Boxster S provided you could find a wheel with the right offset.
