    Re: cayman s wheels--18 vs 19 inch

    Will newer generation Cayman S/Boxster S stock wheels fit on a 987.2 S?

    (sorry if this is a dumb question)

    I just measured my LE with 19s and my CSS with 18 snows - the rear tire is 1" shorter on the CSS, so putting 18s on a PASM car that came with 19s will lower it 1/2".

    If you look at the OD on tire sizes they are nearly the same. same OD means the same ride height on similar suspension setups, right?

    My driveway has the street curb. I take it at an angle, but no scraping with the CSS + snows. There are also speed bumps in the neighborhood and no scraping there either.

    I'd say they should, because I sold my stock wheels to 987 owner, and he didn't complained
