Are pulsars wider on the front track than the back? If so does any one know by how much?
And also when fitting spacers how many mm ideally should they be wider front/rear?

I think that it always looks like the rear wheels sit in further than the fronts ...

I don't know about other cars but standard 25mm track difference seems a lot? And you're right, just visually the rear wheels sit further in. Nissan must have done this for a reason at the time.

One of the criticisms of the Hurican is that the front end is wider than the rear and it makes the car understeer. Lambo done it to make the car more road friendly and safe. Since Sunnys were mostly going to be driven by old grannies and new drivers, that's probably why they done the same here and then the same design was carried over to the R for some reason (probably Group A homologation rules)
