In general, Porsche Boxster wheel spacers can be used with most rims and tires, but there are some important considerations to remember. First, you must ensure that the wheel spacers are compatible with the bolt pattern of Porsche Boxster rims. The bolt pattern refers to the number of bolts and the spacing between them, and it must match the bolt pattern of the wheel spacers to install them properly.
Secondly, you must consider the thickness of the Porsche Boxster wheel spacers and the clearance between the tire and the vehicle’s body or suspension components. Using wheel spacers that are the right size can fix the tire to rub against the fender or other parts of the vehicle, which can affect the vehicle’s handling. Otherwise, oversize wheel spacers make it worse.
Finally, you should consider the driving you will be doing and whether the Porsche Boxster wheel spacers are appropriate for your intended use. Some wheel spacers are designed for off-road or racing applications, while others are better suited for street use. Porsche Boxster is suitable to run thin wheel spacers among 8mm-30mm.
It’s always best to consult a qualified mechanic or wheel specialist to ensure you choose the right type and size of Porsche Boxster wheel spacers for your vehicle and intended use. BONOSS Porsche Boxster wheel spacers can perfectly fit popular wheel brands, including BBS, HRE, WORK, OZ, etc. The chassis model of the Porsche Boxster determines whether the lug pattern is consistent.
The lug pattern of the PCD 5×130, CB 71.6, which corresponds to the position of the Porsche Boxster wheel spacers, does not affect the fitment of aftermarket wheels and can even be made compatible with more aftermarket wheels by customizing the lug pattern of the wheel adapters. These popular lug patterns will be available in a wider range of wheel styles, for example, 5×130 to 5×114.3, 5×130 to 5×120, and so on.
How to Choose the Right Size Porsche Boxster Wheel Spacers?
The size of the Porsche Boxster wheel spacers can be selected based on the backspacing and offset values of the wheels. If you use stock wheels, then the vehicle data is available in the owner’s manual or on the relevant car data website. Take the 2012-2017 Porsche Boxster, for example. And they have an offset between 45-59, and the exact value needs to be determined for the chosen wheel. A positive offset of 45-59 will ensure the wheel is always hidden under the fender.
The flush or protruding wheel appearance can be determined by measuring the horizontal distance from the outside of the tire to the fender, and you do not need to start from the outside of the wheel. The measured data can be used directly to select Porsche Boxster wheel spacers. Contact our customer service for assistance if you have any questions about the measured data or the measurements. It is important to note that the measured data is only used as a reference for flush wheel spacers.
