    Which allow wheels for snow tires (987)

    OK, it may be too early to think about snow tires but as I am about to pick up my new 987 I'm already thinking about which allow wheels I will buy for snow tires. Problem is I don't like the 17" Boxster and 18" Boxster S wheel designwise (which made me order the 19" Carrera Classics from the factory). I think the Cayman 18 inchers look pretty good but my dealer has no hope that these wheels will be available through Tequipment next winter. Any thoughts ? And no, I am not a big fan of aftermarket wheels...

    Re: Which allow wheels for snow tires (987)

    As it's getting closer to winter time my PAG service rep called me yesterday to sell either the 17" or 18" 987 wheels/snow tire combo at a special price. Well, I asked for a Cayman S 18" combo with the 18" Boxster combo price for my 987 which made him almost drop the phone (due to confusion and surprise) ...Two hours later he called back and confirmed my order! Delivery is promised for early December due to the Cayman S release at the end of November. Great job by my dealer !


    Re: Which allow wheels for snow tires (987)

    Well, I just hope that the rim offsets and tire sizes (especially rear) of the Boxster and Cayman S are the same regarding winter wheels. If not, you're actually getting something you really didn't want to have.

    Yep, they are the same. Rep has checked on that and he even sent me an official brochure for those combos:

    18" Boxster S wheel/snow tire combo (order no. 987 044 600 05) is the same as the 18" Cayman S combo (order no. 987 044 600 09):

    front: 8Jx18 ET 57, 235/40 R 18 V

    rear: 9Jx18 ET 43, 255/40 R 18 V
