Anyone have one I can borrow? I have a friend that needs to see if it will fit his car. I can return it if needed. Condition doesn't matter.

It is... I have a friend that is setting up a Boxster Spyder for national level competition. He'd like to run a 325 on the rear to get more rake. Problem is I believe that tire size is new and I don't know if anyone is using it in any class on any car?

Maybe try Mike Jr but I think he used to run 345's not sure what he ran on the front. Im running 17s I think there will be a loss of grip off the line with 325 19s due to the stiff sidewall. But if its stock I guess you have to use what you can get on the rim.

What class? There is a Boxster in TX running FP with huge tires, but I am pretty sure they aren't 19s. I would think you would want a 17 or 18" rim. Erik Steelnieks and Beth McClure-Strelnieks run it. I am sure you can find pics via Google if that would help. Erik also drives an RX-7 in SSM. Wicked car.

The Boxster Spyder is sort of an unknown.. it's classed in Super Stock. It has slightly more HP than the S model and a few suspension enhancements.  I suspect that 17's or 18's would give better gearing but it comes with 19's so that's what he's stuck with running. That alone might be why you don't see anyone running the car in national competition.

I have seen a couple of Boxster Spyders at Cars & Coffee, but none autocrossing. SS nationally seems to be all about Vettes and GT3s with an occasional Viper or Elise. There was even a Tesla Roadster at Solo Nats last year. It was cool to see it and not hear it, but it wasn't competitive.
