17" wheels on a Boxster

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1998; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 30,000;

I have a set of 17" 996 C4 wheels left over from my 996 onwership, which I would like to use on my Boxster (2.5liter). I know the fronts are identical for both the Boxster and the 996, but the rear wheel is 0.5" wider (9J X 17 with vs. 8.5 x 17). I have read in several places on the internet where people have mounted and used the 996 rear wheels on a Boxster without any problems. I know they fit, but come very close to the strut or shock. Can I safely use the 996 rear on a Boxster, or are spacers or other measures needed?
