SoCal: 19x8.5 and 19x10 OEM Carrera Sport wheels w/ Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires

We'll do this in a Q/A format:

1. What am I selling?

A set of OEM Carrera Sport wheels. More specifically, as follows:

Front: 19x8.5 ET55, part number: 997.362.156.55
Rear: 19x10 ET 42, part number: 997.362.160.50

These were factory options on the 997 and 987.

2. Do they come with tires?

Yes, the tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

Front: 235/35/19
Rear: 265/35/19


3. How much do you want for them?

$1499 USD. OBO (or, as the Brits say, ONO) - UPDATE 9/18/18 - New lower price: $1399!

4. Will you ship?

I seriously would rather not. Really. Just the thought of shipping these gives me shivers and goose pimples.

5. Why are you selling?

I had a friend purchase them several months ago for me in NorCal to run on a 987.2 Cayman I was going to buy. I did not buy the Cayman. I just picked them up from my friend's garage in NorCal and now have them down here in SoCal.

6. Do they come with TPMS sensors?

I have no idea, I've never cracked them open to see. If they do and you end up buying them, consider yourself extra-lucky :P.

7. What do they fit?

These were OEM on 997s and 987 Boxsters and Caymans. They apparently fit a variety of other cars, including 996s, 986s and, from what I've read, 993s and even 964s (although you may need spacers for the aircooled cars).

8. What do they look like on a 987 Cayman?

Like this:




9. What do they look like on a 987 Boxster?

12. What about a 986 Boxster?

Sure, I've got a pic of one of those as well!

Some people have asked about date codes. They're all in the 2016 range. The two rears are 1616 and the fronts I think are 0816 (one may be 1316).
