Will these wheels fit?

I'm looking at buying a new set of wheels, but I want to make sure they fit. The sizes are Front 18 x 8" - 50mm / Rear 18 x 10 - 65mm offset. Has anyone used these sizes and can confirm they will fit?

I would like to get them for the 928, but if they end up not fitting then they will go on the Boxster and I will use my Boxster wheels on the 928

TIA!

The rears will not fit the boxster thats for sure. You would need almost 20MM spacers for the rear.

I have 26mm spacers for the 928. Will those work with the 65mm offset to allow the rears to fit?

Based on my recent research into the topic, you want 40-50 mm of rear offset, so the 65mm offset of the 996 wheels would require substantial spacers.
