Offsets

The stock wheels are
Front: 7x17 - 55 Offset
Rear: 8.5x17 - 50 Offset

I would guess that your wheels would probably clear the brake calipers (which are a bit smaller on a 986 than a 986S which are the specs I've quoted). The effect of your wheels would be to slightly increase front track while slightly decreasing rear track. The differences are small - so, it might not be a big deal. Also, whether your tires will clear is a matter of tire sizes vs stock...

All of the Porsche "approved wheels" in that size are:
18 x 8 ET 50 mm (front)
and
18 x 10 ET 47 mm (rear)
