Here's the easiest way to answer you:

Call Ernie's Alloys in Miami, FL. He's an Ebay seller, and I don't know exactly how to contact him because I have forgotten the number, but peruse Porsch rims on Ebay and his auctions will pop up everywhere.

He sells spacers of all sizes and will help you. He's very knowledgeable and very nice. I'm a newbie too and he was patient with me and all my stupid questions.

I'd tell you the offsets for my 1997, but I don't know what the 2000 model's specs are. I know they are different.

I'm betting you'll need some spacers for the back though. That's a wide tire. And you may want to put them on the front just to fill out the wheel well a bit as your fronts are only 8 inches and the ones I'm looking at are 9 inches wide.

Hope this helps!

Ernie will give you straight answers. Call him. If you need spacers, he sells them quite cheaply and you can take care of that right over the phone with him.
