    standard 997 18" wheels available for 987?

    hi everyone
    does anyone know if the standard 997 18" wheels can be ordered from factory for the 987s? and how much would it be??


    Re: standard 997 18" wheels available for 987?

    The only way i can see you could order form factory would be under the 'exclusive' range. Your best option(providing the offsets are suitable) would be to order them through your Porsche dealer parts depot. I'd GUESS about 650GBP each (US$1250).

    You may also be able to source through a wheel specialist local to you.

    When I ordered my 987 S I asked the salesperson, because I like the looks of the 997 18" also. Answer: offsets don't suit

    997 18" wheels are

    Fr 997 362 136 00 8Jx18 ET 57

    Rr 997 362 140 01 10Jx18 ET 58



    987 18s are..

    Fr 987 362 136 00/01 8Jx18 ET 57
    Rr 987 362 138 011 9Jx18 ET 43


    There in lies your problem, the 997 rears wheel would need a 14mm spacers (maybe get away with 10mm dependent upon inner arch clearance) and long bolts to fit into the 987 rear arches.

    Porsche wouldn't want to warranty such a change - but they WILL fit (at least on paper !)

    Not sure they look right either - they don't have the elegance of the original thinner Carrera spokes on the 986/996

    Re: standard 997 18" wheels available for 987?

    thanks for your pic

    as i said there are not many 18" wheels to choose

    the standard wheels on boxster s & cayman s do not look very nice either.....

    If the standard 18" wheels looked too nice (like the elegant 18" Carrera wheels that were available on 986/996), Porsche wouldn't sell too many 19" wheels. would they?

    Or am I just being cynical?

    Boy, did you hit the nail on the head. The base Boxster wheels have always turned me off (although I now have the 18s on my 987S -- they're OK, but not great). The solution is to go aftermarket and deny Porsche the sale.

    Re: standard 997 18" wheels available for 987?

    of coz Porsche deliberately made the standard wheels look "ordinary" just to get everyone paying extra to upgrade their wheels

    but i think they should at least provide more options for 18" wheels since many people would like to have a nice balance between comfort & style, especially in those countries with less than perfect road conditions.....

    Re: standard 997 18" wheels available for 987?

    Yup too bad the Techart Formula 18 does not look half as good as the 19, otherwise that would be it...
