2000 C4 Wheels for 2003 996 C2?

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 1250;

Thank you so much for your response to my previous question re: '996 ride harshness:wheels vs/suspension'. Since then, I've tried to review your previous letters/responses to try and figure out which wheel/tire combination(s) will fit. I did not realize that there was a change in offset (front only)from 55 to 50mm between '01 and '02 model-years. Furthermore, the specific wheels I am considering are those that Porsche used as standard equipment on the 2000 Carrera 4 (7x17/8.5x17, 5-spoke). Does the change in offset matter? Do these wheels have the proper offset to begin with, and are there any other differences because they were originally designed for a C4? I am getting differing advice as to whether or not they will fit and not affect the cars handling.
