The standard wheels on the Boxster models have been enlarged by one inch compared with those of the previous models. Made from a lightweight alloy, the larger wheels reinforce the car’s imposing presence and further improve sporty performance.
The Boxster is equipped with 18-inch wheels. Their minimalist five-spoke design is sporty and elegant in equal measure. Tyre sizes are 235/45 ZR 18 and 265/45 ZR 18 at the front and rear, respectively.
The Boxster S has 19-inch wheels with a dynamic dual-spoke design. The tire size at the front is 235/40 ZR 19 and 265/40 ZR 19 at the rear.
The larger rolling circumference improves comfort and performance. At the same time, the rolling resistance of the new generation of tires has been reduced which, in turn, helps to reduce fuel consumption.
Wheels up to 20 inches are available as an option.
The standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sends warnings to the on-board computer’s display screen in the event of low tire pressure. The 4.6-inch TFT screen in the instrument cluster enables the driver to check the pressure in all four tires. The system updates quickly and accurately after an engine start, tire pressure correction or wheel change – for increased comfort and safety.
