Re: Wheel offset.

I like the Argent Gray as well.

Just to complete the topic of wheel offset, you need to be aware of several dimensions when seeing if a wheel will fit:

Diameter of wheel
Width of wheel
Offset of wheel
(and bolt pattern and centerbore of course)

Since Offset is measured from the centerline of the wheel, the overall position/clearance of the wheel will depend on the width of the wheel. A positive offset means the hub mounting surface of the wheel is outboard of the wheel centerline when viewed. Here's a diagram:



taken from tirerack.com. This page may explain positive/negative offset a little more clearly:

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/tech/...jsp?techid=101

Here's a Wheel Offset Calculator (with some better images as well):

http://www.gtsparkplugs.com/WheelOffsetCalc.html

If you go with a wider wheel, and the same offset as stock, the wheel will be closer to the strut/spring by the half the difference in the wheel widths. Also, you could lose steering travel if the wheel is so wide that it contacts the tie-rod before the steering lock.

Hope this helps...

Re: Wheel offset.

I posted a more detailed reply before this, but apparently it needs to be approved by the moderator....There are some more links and descriptions in that post. If it doesn't show up, let me know and I'll try to re-post.

Here's another calculator that includes tire sizing:

What is our stock offset for 17x7" wheels?

Re: Wheel offset.

ok dumb question... does offset = backspace? whats the difference?

also, whats the difference between the SRT and the stock rim backspace? i.e. how much more backspace does the SRT rim have?

EDIT:
actually i think i figured this out.... the 35 offset of the SRT looks to be around 3 to 3.5" backspace... am i right?

offset is the distance from the hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. Theres negative and positive offsets. They are usually measured in mm.

back spacing is the distance from the hub mounting surface to the inside lip of the wheel and is measured in inches


the SRT wheels are +34.5 and +50....no idea on the stock 17's and 18's

Re: Wheel offset.

Anyone have photos and/or experience with 20x9 at 30mm? Based on SRT numbers, they'll stick out 3/8". Not sure if that's a deal-killer or not.
