    FK make some hub adaptors, worth checking, you will need a 5x110 - 5x130 adaptor.

    Correct size spigot ring, 65.1mm ID - 71.5mm OD

    As for wheel sizes, depends how much work you want to do to the car to get them to fit. Just remember that the adaptor is going to be 20-30mm thick, so has a huge effect on the offset of the wheel, an ET45 rim would become ET15-ET25 depending on thickness of adaptor.

    Offset should be ok as Porsche offsets tend to be in the 50's - 60's, but as Dave says you will need to check it.

    kk, just check the centre bore of the wheels before ordering a spigot ring. The 71.5mm is what the older 911 + other models use. The newer models may have a different size

    9" on ET22-ET32 isn't going to be a straight fit on the rear.

    Even 7.5's on a similar offset will be tight on the front, as i'm guessing you will be slamming the car as well?

    9's can be done, Oztec coupe is using them on his (or could even be 9.5's). But will mean rolling the arch and he has had his cut + extended as well
    2 sets of fronts would be less work fitting, but obviously the 9's would look a lot nicer if you could get them on. All comes down to how much you want to spend
