i've got a black aero kitted car with m030 suspension and the same wheels as you and posted before and after pics when fitting 15mm spacers all round so hopefully the pics will give you a better idea of how it would look

I run 7mm spacers up front with 8" wheels ET52 on 235 rubber. - At rear 12mm on 10" ET65 on 285 rubber.

The amount of camber that your running and the brand of tyre will have an effect on how it looks. - Yoko AD08R for example has a very square profile, almost 90 degree from side wall to tread, while Cup2's are far more rounded from side wall to tread.

my spacers are H&R hub-Centric.

In regards to longer bolts, I run Rennline Studs, which I find excellent and make removing and refitting wheels significantly easier.

Ride height is the GT3 -3mm which may be to low for you, but I get no real issues, the odd scrape on the front splitter, but I run a Cup splitter so its a little lower than an aero/GT3 item.

Studs look like a great job. Didn’t look at off set but my front wheels are 7.5 with a 235. Rears are 285/30. Not sure on rim width but the tyres are p zero’s and sit way over the rim edge. Fairly well settled on 7mm front and 15mm rear spacers.
Haven’t got round to getting them yet as I’m doin other small bits.

235 are a little wide for 7.5" 225 would be better suited.

Check the width on your rears, the Sport Design rears come in 9" most commonly fitted to Boxsters and 10" fitted to 996. (They look identical)

If you have 9" 285 is to wide, 265 would be better suited, 285 works well on 10"

The above may help explain why the tyres sit way over the rim edge, however it could also be tyre design/shape.

I’m considering a set of panamera wheels like coulstars. They seem to look bigger and less cluttered so might suit my colour better. They’re not too hard on the pocket but can be sold again if needs be. I can sort narrower tyres if that happens. Might have to sell my carbon steering wheel to pay for a few bits Surprised
