996 C2 wheel sizes

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 6000;

I own a 2001 996 C2 with wheel sizes of 8x18 (front) and 10x18 (rear). This past weekend I was admiring a new 2004 GT3 when I noticed the size of the wheels & Tires of 8.5x18 (front) & 11x18 (rear). I was under the impression that wheels of this size would only fit the wide body Turbo & C4S not a C2 body (which it appears the GT3 is similar to a C2)? My question is, could the GT3 size wheels fit my 996? If yes what size spacer front and rear would I need and If these wheels and tires would fit what would it do to the handling characteristics of my 996 (positive or negative) and what could I do to resolve any negatives. Thanks for your time.
