Greg's Yellow Boxster New 17" Wheels

My original Yokohama AVS S-1 tires finally wore out after 15,000 miles and several track events. The front especially where pretty much gone. I decided to not only change tires but also move to 17" Boxster wheels for better handling, looks and for greater ease of cleaning!

One thing I noticed is that the 17" wheels are a little bit heavier than the 16" wheels. The rear especially since not only is there more wheel but the tire is quite a bit wider too.
