Boxster S 2000 19" wheels?

Does anyone of you happen to know if 19" wheels fit Boxster S, year 2000?

front: 9x19 ET53
rear: 10x19 ET38

Ebay say it does but can I trust that? I know they fit to Boxster 2.7L from year 2000 but what about the S model?

Thanks!

Are you sure about the front wheel being 9 inches ?

Yep, I know for sure those are 9 inch. I've seen 8.5 inch 19" ET51 would fit to front but now trying to figure out would 9 inch ET53 fit. 2mm on offset wouldn't be that much of a difference or would it be?

A 9 inch wheel will add roughly another 12mm's in width, in which case it will likely cause inner clearance problems; especially with such a high offset. The lowering the offset will simply have the opposite effect, wherein the wheel will likely be pushed out too far toward the fender lip. Others have been successful at shoehorning a 9 inch wheel onto a 986 boxster, but it wouldn't be my recommendation.
