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

I think the title says it all

Sorry guys I have been out of the loop for a while.
Started working down here in Colombia South America for the past 5 months.
The car is being stored with my folks in Sequim WA. It's going to get a color change and have the motor re-freshed, just some things were to wild for it, like the cam (wont idle below 1200 rpm), I got it running before I left Germany and I took it out for a spin, its a beast but I had to cut the ride short (no seat belts and tags- the German police really look down on that thing )
