Audi wheel question

The VW/Audi Kharthum wheel is a 18x8 et 57 wheel in the Porsche CB and bolt pattern. Is there any reason these wouldn't work on the Boxster? Thinking of 18x8 square setup.

Thanks

VW uses a 5X112 bolt pattern these days, the Boxster is 5X130 so it would not work without adapters. Not sure how they come in a Porsche bolt pattern, maybe not a factory wheel.

Touregs/Q7/Cayennes all share wheels so the Q7 rim is a 5x130. Just asking to see if anyone knows a reason they woulodn't work.

Thanks

Check the offset. Not sure wheels off a Cayenne AWD would be similar
