Calculating Wheel Offset

Wheels, Offset, and How to Calculate Fitment

When fitting aftermarket, or custom wheels, you should check for any clearance issues.

Incorrect fitment or Rubbing will wear out your tires, bearings, and cause other suspension components to fail or wear prematurely.

Offset is the measurement in millimeters from the wheel centre line to the wheel mounting face.
More often than not, offsets are positive(+) where wheel styles tend to be flush or convex.
Negative (-) offsets tend to have concave styling and the use of spacers. 

The Offset, or "ET" (Einpress Tiefe translates to Press Depth in German),
determines the distance between the centre of the rim surface and
the face of the wheel where it is bolted to the hub.

WARNING: Incorrect offset can seriously affect vehicle performance.
