well they fit as far as rough fit ive been told the 944 hub will push out another 10mm.
i was told late wheels dont fit the bearing cap on the early hubs without a spacer.if so whats the min spacer required to clear the bearing caps

16 x 6 seems pretty narrow for a stock Boxster rim, even a Boxster. Are these original rims? Do you have a photo? I run 16x7 and 16x8 928S slots and ROH 5 spokes with no issues on 944 springs but I've already swapped to Porsche brakes all around. Both sets of rims don't line up with the fenders though, they stick out further.

16 x 6" ET 50 front and 16 x 7" ET 40 is standard 1997 Boxster

Cant help with the details but they fit fine on 1975 2 bolt with V Force struts (similar to Maxx Extreme)

We've got a pair of both the Boxster 16x6's (195/50)and their big brother 17x6.5's(195/45)...They're sweet for stock-fendered cars. Design 90's also came in 16x6 with ET52.3.
