Question Question about wheel offset and compatibility - tire and wheel experts please advise.

I'm on the lookout for a particular wheel that is no longer made. They often come up for sale on the used market with the following specs:

Front: 18"X9" 50ET
Rear: 18"x10.5" 40ET

Because they're a 5X100 bolt pattern, I'll need an adapter to fit them to my 5X130 hubs. Other than the bolt pattern issue, which should easily be solved with an adapter, will these fit my car? Should the adapter also be a spacer of any particular thickness to help with offset? I need to know before I get my hopes up: when the wheels become available I'll need to act quickly as they are highly sought after and don't last long on the used I want to be sure my ducks are in line.

Thanks for your help,
back in the saddle: '95 993 - just another black C2
*SOLD*: '87 930 GP White - heroin would have been a cheaper addiction...
