Hi all does anyone have any experiences with the aftermarket 996 911 turbo style wheels available from the run of the mill mag wheel peddlers? They look good quality, but uncertain of the origin. Any good experiences with particular brands?

Really? Boxster S wheels look so much better on a Boxster IMO. The turbo wheels dont really suit the 987.

They are 19" which is part of the reason.

I think the standard S wheels look plain. I like the factory 5 x dual spoke 19s, but they are hard to find.

Post up a pick of your car how it looks now. I thought the white car above was yours.

they are OK, as they are 997 Turbo wheels, the design language of those suits a 987 fine.

but you said 996 Turbo wheels which suit a 986 boxster (although not that well IMO) but not really the 987.  the 996 Turbo wheels are a 18" wheel which is different to what you're mentioning.

so you're not a fan of the 19" boxster wheel?
