Hi guys me again ! Lol found a set of wheels 5x100 48 offset 18".
Knight racer can knock me up a set of custom wheel adapters to allow for studs my side and bolts the wheel side and sort out the centre bore issue too! My concern is because of the wheel size and offset am I going to encounter problems fitting these to the pulsar ? I am an absolute wheel novice so any advice would be amazing

48 offset will put the wheels right in so you would need decent spacers (as I know you mentioned) to ensure you can fit then and not foul the brake/suspension etc. Ideally you would want a wheel with a much lower offset and the correct stud for the Pulsar 4x100 so are you getting these wheels at an unbelievably good price to make you want to have to purchase all these supporting factors.

My advise would be to get the correct stud pattern with a nice set of 16" and do it right first time rather than using spacers unnecessarily just because the wheels wont fit by a mile.

Also why 18" were you wanting a wide body R or something? would probably scrub the inner plastics to high hell and handle like a Saxo.

It was just an incredibly rare set of wheels I can get them in 15's in the pulsar fitment but they wouldn't fit over my brakes

Thats no problem lol ah I see so there your dream wheels! Its alot of work but if thats what you want then thats what you will have.

Its just I also have these great ideas and I end up with loads of parts in the garage sitting there waiting for me to get time to ever so it and end up unfinished so I try to advise on keeping it simple with these cars, why not a nice set of Rotas or something :-)

Compomotive make the mo5 in 4x100 so no need for adapters.

Added bonus that they are the best wheels. Cool

Are they brand new or second hand the wheels? Have you checked in case the manufacturer will do them in the correct stud/offset as compomotive did this for a set of mine.
