18" turbo 2 wheels

Hi guys, I'm looking at a rim for this coming summer, the measurements are 18x8 fronts, 18x10 rear. Do I need spacers for these rims? Or just slap it on and go for my 1999 986. Thanks

18s will fit a Boxster, but it is the offset as to why people add spacers. Generally, the more the offset = the more the wheel is inside the wheel well. The less the offset = the more it sticks out the wheel well. More than likely you could slap on the wheel, but if you have the offsets post them.

65 offsets wont work for the rear. The front is ok. You will need 15-20MM spacers.
