What kind of wheel clearance do you have front and rear?

What is the offset and tire size used on the Boxster wheel?

Has wheel movement been hindered in any way?

It appears from the pictures that there isn't alot of room between the rear tires and the fenders...how much rubbing is there (notice I didn't ask if there was rubbing, only how much )

If you used narrowed rear trailing arms, would it improve the clearance on the outboard side of the tire while still maintaining clearance on the inside edge?

Nice looking Ghia!

What kind of wheel clearance do you have front and rear?
( I had to add a spacer to bring the front wheel out, it was hitting the shock tower, the rears I did nothing with, they are stock 944 steel arms)

What is the offset and tire size used on the Boxster wheel?
(they are 205x45x17 and a ET52 offset, stock Boxster, I can double check though)

Has wheel movement been hindered in any way?
(Not that I can tell so far)

It appears from the pictures that there isn't alot of room between the rear tires and the fenders...how much rubbing is there (notice I didn't ask if there was rubbing, only how much )
(No,there isnt a lot of room, about a flat fingers width between the tire and the fender is all I have)

If you used narrowed rear trailing arms, would it improve the clearance on the outboard side of the tire while still maintaining clearance on the inside edge?
(There's not a lot of room to play with in there either, Ill can send you some more pics later on)

Thanks
Chris

Sorry Guys,
Got side tracked today, the fuel pump took a dump, so I was busy trying to find one but nothing here in Germany even came close to my WALBRO pump.

I'll try harder next week, if you like I can send them to your privet emails?
Cause some of the pics that I do have are way to large for here.

Chris
