    N8'll put you right. Will likely need spacers on both.

    Front inner clearance - 15mm LESS
    Outer position - EXTEND an extra 11mm

    Rear inner clearance - 23mm LESS
    Outer position - EXTEND an extra 27mm

    According to Wheel Offset Calculator

    Looks like a no go to me. You MAY get away with 4 x fronts with the correct adapters.

    Good luck.

    Gen Turbo Alloys 997, will be 11J rear. 4 x fronts, 15mm adapter, 215/35 and it'll fit/work.
