I'm not seeing the part number on the two links you provided, but when I go to Michelin, I see that two PSS in that size are available: One (p/n 99872) is the standard tire and the other (p/n 71226)...

http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com is a bit out of date but should allow you to compare offsets.

Oh, and it's in German, but fiddle around and I think you can figure it out.

Yes, 18-inchers of the proper offset etc. fit with no problems. Nothing is different on the car itself.

Yes, it is. For your winter setup, use the front size at all four position and you're golden.

I think you're confusing two separate areas of tire choice here:
(1) RFT versus non-RFT
(2) All-season tires versus summer and winter tires.

Revs per mile is the only number that the car's systems care about and I would say you are fine, assuming the wide tires don't rub.

Those looking for a taller sidewall in a 17-inch fitment, could do minus zero sizing: In the case of an E9x, 205/50R-17 or 215/50R-17 should be fine.

Planet-9 is the best site for the Boxster/Cayman in my opinion. Keep trying.

That said, I'm not sure I have seen another forum for ANY brand that provides the insight available here at bimmerfest.
