Will 11" Carrera wheels fit onto my 02 boxster

Hi folks basicallly i purchased a set of carrera wheels for my 2002 boxster s. They came with 305-30-19 tyres which i no will give me problems on the rear. Is there a tyre size that anyone can recommend or even will these fit on the rear as im starting to doubt if they will actually fit

The wheels most likely have the wrong offset to fit without spacers and/or tire/suspension interference....................

Regardless of the offset, use of spacers ect..., an 11 inch wheel will never fit a 986 Boxster. There have been numerous posts on this topic. It maybe worth using the search feature on this site to check them out.
Don't worry … I've got the microfilm.
