Wheel Offset

The offset of a wheel is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is positioned in front of the true centerline of the rim / tyre assembly. This in effect brings the tyre in to the guard well more. Conversely, a negative offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the true centerline of the rim / tyre assembly. This will cause the tyre to stick out away from the vehicle.
