NinetyOneC2, Thanks for the P-chop work. I'm going to look for a set now. I know it's not everyone favorite but IMO they good enough...just sick of cleaning three piece wheels.

are you looking to get rid of the speedlines?

The wheels in the picture are Gemballas. I think RH made them...there already sold though. I have a set of HRE 545 I just put on ebay. It appears I need new shoes every two years.

Using a 11" wide wheel on a 964 wide body car is tricky because much of the added clearance you gain from the wider fenders is lost because of the rear trailing arms. The other issue you are going to encounter is the tire size. A 295 will fit, but they are all too tall with the shortest being 26" tall. Using 265 or 275/30 19 is too much of a stretch on a 11" wide wheel. You could use the 9.5" wheel made for the 987 Boxster and Cayman. The front should be fine, might need 5mm spacer.

Alan Baylis, you are right on with the 295 tires and 11" wheel width. When I had my 295/11 I used a 7mm spacer with the fenders rolled and the left rear outer tire barely rubbed. I scratch out the 19" wheel idea, but found these on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...138930918&rd=1
Still undecided on the wheels but I found an alternative to the 19".
