Will these wheels work?

So I needed wheels and found a "deal" on 16" wheels from a 97 911. 16x8 up front and 16x9 out back. the offsets were ET55 (front) and Et70 (rear)

The bolt pattern is ok obviously but it looks like the center bore is too small or something becaue it seems the center of the rim is hitting.

What have you guys seen for wheels?
of these don't work my buddy has Victor Equipment 18s on his 993 that he said he would sell me from his because he wants new wheel..... will they work? offset looks to be same on thier application chart

Without knowing what year and model boxster you have, I'd say that the offsets were too high all round; especially the rears . This application will require the use of spacers all around . Which, begs the question, why do you want to run 16's ?

p.s. Need more info on the Victors to give an opinion .
