The short answer is yes. However, +56 is a pretty high offset for the 986 . I would recommend using spacers up front to lower the offset to at least +47 or so .

Sounds like it's a straight fit. Will do some research as I'm looking for a 19" that fits without any mods. Will research. Thanks Danger.

Interesting! With tires and balancing? Would definitely save me the worry on fitment etc. Thanks again.

Hey Danger, I'm seriously starting to think that you are truly working for the Asians Most of those same wheels are sitting here in the stores (funny). Why are they so expansive in the states??

Price you see on the Chinese eBay (Taobao) are never the real ones... normally you can bargain these for 25-50% cheaper than the online advertised price.... well, if your spoken Chinese is somehow functional (beware.... takes a good 5 year to learn both the language and the little tricks).

There's a lot of decent wheels to be had on eBay at reasonable prices . Though, you may have to resort to spacers in order to achieve the proper fitment . There's a lot of us on the forum who can help you with that .

Why is it that they never put the weight of those metal thing online??? that particular one on the scale is roughly 14kg for the 8.5". Obviously I didn't even bother to check the 10" rear when I was shopping for p wheels LOL. The HRE P40 replica however, if you can find them on eBay, are very close to not being THAT bad tho.... 11kg for the 18x10.

There's no way I'd put this kind of wheel on my car. I don't trust the quality of them at all.
