Question wheels

I have a 2000 Boxster and want to buy second set of 17" wheels. What will fit? I see some good buys online but they do not all come off Boxsters and I can't afford to buy wheels that do not fit.

I think pretty much any Boxster or 996 wheel will fit. One can find them so prevelant...I'm not sure I'd try anything else?

996 wheels have a different rear offset, so spacers would be necessary.

Do you know what size spacers would be required?

If I'm not mistaken, the standard 17x9 Boxster wheel has an ET of 48, whereas, the 996 wheel ET is 55. A 7mm spacer would be necessary. Just look for 17" wheels with an offset of ET 48 and you'll have no troubles.

There appear to be plenty on eBay.

BTW, my '02 S has 18x10s on the rear with an offset of ET47. Works like a champ.
