Here is what I have found so far, and again my wheels are 18x11-45 offset and 18x8-50 offset OEM 996 TT wheels (what I was told anyway).

With a front 1" bolt on adapter the wheel sits too deep in the well, looks horrible. If you remove the OEM 1" spacer from the rear and try and use the 2" bolt on adapter you quickly (or not so quickly) find that the unthreaded portion of the OEM lugs is about 1/4" too long and the spacer can not be tightened down against the hub. Using what I have, I took the 2" spacer and used it up front. This put my wheel/tire at the outermost edge of the wheel well when I lowered the car and put weight on the wheels (it's on a lift). I then put BACK the OEM 1" spacer and bolted on the 1" bolt-on adapter. This places the rear wheel/tire out on the edge also. Both *may* be perfect but I won't know until I get the car running again, hopefully this coming weekend.
