Question Do I need spacers?

Hi All,

I am interested in getting used factory '05 Boxster wheels for my '01 Boxster. The wheels/tires have the following specifications: 235/ 40 ZR 18, 18 X 8 with 57mm offsets front and 265 40 zr18, 18x9 with 46mm offset rear.

Can I put these wheels in my '01 Boxster without requiring any spacers?

Let me know if you get a chance. Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Humberto-

You might be able to pull it off without spacers there only .5" wider than stock 17". BUt I am not sure, you can always call up a tire shop.
Hope this Helps!
