Sorry, not good for several reasons:

Wrong bolt pattern - s/b 5x130
The offsets aren't good.
Wouldn't want to have an 8.5" rim on the rear.

Ugliest .. wheels .. ever. And husker is correct. They won't fit.

Nothing wrong with an 8.5" wide rear wheel, though.

i saw other ebay sellers selling boxster rims with 5x130 bolt patterns so i assumed those would work too.. what then is the correct bolt pattern?

Boxster bolt pattern wheels are 5 x 130mm.

Audi's bolt pattern is 5 x 112mm, which is what is stated in that ad.

I think they would look pretty good with some chrome fender trim, a little neon, maybe a couple of tv screens in the mirrors
