Thanks

Probably not, did not try it.
17" fits, maybe 16" also.

996 isn't a Boxster... unless they share the same part?

He says like he has any money in the kitty to buy anything Porsche-branded! ;)

And this is with 17" winter tyres.

And yes I know they are dirty.

16" and 15" will not fit anymore.
