in need of a wheel expert
just makin a quick thread as i know jack all about rims even when i read it lol

i looked on WK jeeps and apparently my stock tires had a 50mm offset
im assuming thats +50mm offset

im wondering if a 17" wheel with a 0 offset will fit without spacers or grinding the caliper

im trying to find the offset of the moab wheel so i can compare..

on the other side, has anyone grinded their caliper?
got any pics?

sorry for another wheel thread

or is it even the offset that makes them not fit?

Re: in need of a wheel expert
Mrtosh tried to run a 0mm offset on his huge wk and didnt like it because he had rubbing. But the backspacing also didn't help him. I think(don't hold me to it) that moabs have a +10mm offset. Hope that helps a little

Re: in need of a wheel expert
