Wheels to fit boxster 2000S

Trying to find out if 97 Carrera wheels will fit my boxster. Wheels are 18x8 and 18x10. Anyone know if they will fit without adapters?

Do you know what the offsets are? Something in the range of 40-46mm would fit well.

Rears will need spacers if they are stock 993 18s. Debatable what looks best but you'll need 15mm at minimum up to 25 if you want really aggressive look. I have 18mm if I remember correctly and I like where they are. Use spacers with lugs and nuts not flat spacers

Agree with smshirk. Installed 996 wb turbo look II rims 18" on my99 Boxster and the fronts were good but used 25mm oem Porsche spacers for rear which provides an aggressive stance. The hard part was finding the oem spacers!!! Good luck.
