Rim fitment question

I was thinking about buying some 997 turbo rims for my 2001 Boxster and didn't know if they would fit properly?

Wheels diameter: 18 Inch

Wheels Width: 8.0 Front and 10.0 Rear

Bolt pattern: 5x130

Offsets: ET.50 Front & ET.65 Rear


Thanks for the help!

Depending on what size tire you'll be using, ideally the rear offset should be reduced to +45 . The fronts will fit, however, if you're looking for a more aggressive "stance" I recommended bringing the offset down to around +40 or so . Again, it depends on what size tire you'll be using .
