    **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Surely someone of you know the weight of every 19 Porsche wheel.
    I've read somewhere that the 19 Carrera S is the heaviest.
    I've also read that for plus weight, 19 causes more understeer and so it's more suitable the choice of 18 wheel.
    To place my order I have to know if
    19 Classic
    19 SportDesign
    19 Carrera Sport
    are lightner and how much than 18 Boxster S - 18 Cayman S
    Really thanks to all that will answer.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Will you be using the car on the street or on the track?

    If you are going to drive the car on the street it will not matter at all that the wheels are slightly lighter or heavier.
    You can adjust the camber in the front manually and balance the over/understeer that way. (It takes 10 minutes to do, and you can do it yourself!)

    Porsche wheels are light, but of course not magnesium light.
    Pick one you like and dont worry about the slight weight differences.

    Unless you are going to track the car (in which case you might consider getting a pair of 18" rims with semi-slicks on) it will not matter at all, since you wont be able to take your car to the limit in the street.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    i just wanna know the weight of every wheel to match them and choose the right one for me

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    I've asked the same question on numerous forums this week andrea, but to date no-one has supplied the info.

    I want the lightest wheel to keep unsprung mass at a minimum and aid ride and handling (non PASM car)

    Do you really think it will make any noticeable difference? It might in something featherlight such as a Lotus Exige on a track but on a road in a Boxster I very much doubt it. If your really paranoid about unsprung weight you'd better specify PCCB as well - much greater weight saving there over standard discs than in any slight difference in road wheel weights.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Scraping the barrel with this one , its like saying I will take off all my jewellery and chuck out all my CD,s because that way I,ll go quicker ..

    Or just go on a diet..

    throt..

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Put more air in the tyres - that'll make the wheels lighter!

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    classics!!!

    light, easy to clean, beautiful. classic design. porche & 5 spoke wheels have a long history.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    I would imagine the clasics are the lightest they were on the 986 for sure.

    And whilst it might be seen as scraping the barrel, 1 or 2 lbs helps. Maybe not much but it does help.

    When you're spending $75k on a Boxster you want to know you'll be happy with it !

    You might notice a difference in ride and handling between 18" and 19" wheels, but you won't notice any difference whatsoever due to the difference in unsprung weight between the different wheel designs.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    i've read in another forum that
    19 sportdesign are the lighest
    then 18
    19 classic
    19 carrera s heaviest

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Every pound makes a difference.....you spend $8000+ to save 5 pounds a corner with PCCB. Yes, I know they are also more efficient....

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    yes ok, I know but a little little expensive....

    Well, that will actually make them heavier.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Filling the tires with helium would help.

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    I love when people answer with what you should do or don't worry about a particular choice. The guy just wants the wheel weights to make a choice for himself. And yes there is a difference in feel with different wheel sizes (17,18,19 , etc.).

    Just a bit of humor , I live off it..

    Re: **********Help help order - 19 weight***********

    Only way i can lower the un-sprung mass is to lose some weight.... Go with the choise you like the most, and add PASM, as its fantastic
