I know that these are the correct offset but what do the other numbers mean? Also they are 18" with 5 stud pattern

18x7.5, 5x114.3 offset 45

18x7.5, 5x100 offset 48

18x8, 5x114.3 offset 45

18x8.5, 5x100 offset 45

etc

Which ones would I need?

If you are refering to the 5x100 and 5x114.3, then this is the PCD (pitch circle diameter) ie 5 holes with a PCD of either 100 or 114.3. The IS, and a lot of the other jap cars use 114.3 PCD.

HTH

If I am wrong someone please correct this

Never mind...... slow connection out here!!!!

So what are the x7.5 figures and x8 :question:

Would it be a case of x7.5 on the front and x8 on the rear?

All of the above is correct but to put it together to answer your original question

Numbers are

1 - Rim diameter in inches

2 - Rim width in inches

3 - Number of studs

4 - PCD in MM (4" or 4.5" in old money)
