18 inch '06 987 wheels

Any interest in a set of new, oem (1200 miles) wheels with Michelin Pilots? No scratches, scuffs or damage of any kind and tires are like new 'cuz they darn near are! They would be coming off my 987S. I'm thinking of going with 19's hence the sale inquiry. I'm in Roseville, CA (Sacramento) and unable to ship although I suppose I could load them in the back of my pickup. Are they worth say, $500 or so per?

987S wheels

They are the stock, oem, 18 inch Boxster S wheels. Standard on the S and optional on the base 987. Tires are Michelin Pilot Sports 235/40 ZR 18 front and 265/40 ZR 18 rear. All four tires have the Porsche N3 rating. Wheels are 8 inch wide front and 9 inch wide rear. Front offset is 57 mm and rear is 43 mm.

18 inch wheels

I'm wanting to go with the 19 inch Carrera Sport wheel set. I have not seen a set on any car yet but the pics look great and the rear is a 10 inch wide and front is 8.5 wide so I gain a half in front and a full inch in the rear. But they are VERY expensive (in my tax bracket!) and presently only available with Continentals mounted. The wheels are not yet available without tires as a set and I really want to stay with the Michelin Pilot Sports so I'm a little torn over the whole thing.

19" Carrera S wheels

I bought my '05 987 with the 19" Carrera S wheels. I believe they are 8.5" front and 9.5" rear with Michelins. I'm actually looking at some after market wheels in the next month or two and my Carrera S wheels might be available. If anyone is interested, let's talk.

SSR 18's

I heard some problems with 19's and needed Winter tires as well. 19's ride too hard on my old beat up spine for any distance driving as well.
