If you install a wheel that is 8.5 inches wide with a zero offset and a tire that is 295 mm (11.61 inches) wide, the 8.5 inch wheel would stick out 1/2 inch more than the 7.5 inch wheel while the edge of the 295 mm wide tire would stick out 15 mm (0.59 inches) more than the 265 mm wide tire did.
What does 0 offset mean on a wheel?
Offset refers to how your car’s or truck’s wheels and tires are mounted and sit in the wheel wells. Zero wheel offset is when the hub mounting surface is in line with the centerline of the wheel.
What is the difference between offset and 0 offset?
“0 Offset”: The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel. “+ Offset”: The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.
Which offset sticks out more?
A simple way to understand offset, is the lower the offset, the more the wheel will stick out, likewise, the higher the offset, the more the wheel will tuck in. For example, and Honda Civic generally uses around a +40mm offset.
How far does a 0 offset stick out?
Well-Known Member. 0 offset is in the middle of the wheel so if you took a tape measure and stuck it in your current wheel to where you feel the back plate and measured out half the distance of the wheel you would be close.
Which offset pushes wheel out?
You can see how a positive offset will tuck the assembly further under the fender, while a zero or negative offset pushes the wheel out towards or even past the fender.
Do positive offset wheels stick out?
Most of the truck wheels come with a positive offset. This means that the wheels are not necessarily sticking out. Now, you just have to adjust the offset to negative or less positive to see that the truck’s wheel stick out. Offset is usually measured in millimeters.
Is 10mm offset a big difference?
10mm isn’t a huge amount. On some cars it makes little difference. Tough you say. But if you want exact fit…see if the dealer still make it right.
How do you know if offset will fit?
Put simply, to find if your wheels will fit your car, measure the distance from your wheel’s center point to where it is mounted. This is the offset. Add that to half your wheel’s width to find the back space and subtract it to find the front space. Compare this to your wheel well to see if it fits.
Is lower offset better?
Looks: A smaller offset moves the wheels outward, so they have a tendency to fill out the wheel well better. Cars set up for show, more than performance will often choose a lower offset wheel, however, if the offset is too small the sidewall will rub the inside of the fender.
Do spacers add or subtract offset?
Yes, they change offset. If you have 40mm offset wheels, a 10mm spacer would make them 30mm. This why you should ALWAYS buy a higher numerical offset when you have any doubts. A 50mm offset can become a 45mm with spacers, but until someone invents an anti-matter spacer, it isn’t going to happen the other way around.
Does offset matter buying wheels?
In other words, offset determines the lateral, or side to side, position of the wheel. As wheel widths change, the offset combined with the new width must be chosen properly so that the wheel and tire have enough space within the wheelwell to avoid rubbing or unwanted contact with other components.
Is positive or negative offset better?
If your offset is too positive, you risk the inside of the tire hitting your suspension. To fix this, bring the offset down, so it’s closer to zero. This moves the tire out. If your offset is too negative, then the outside of the tire will rub on the car’s body and fenders.

How much offset stick out?
A 10″ with a -12 mm offset has a 5″ backspacing so would stick out 2.5″ more than stock 18’s and 20’s. With a -24 mm offset … 3″ more than stock. If you’re planning to run 35’s, you’ll be trimming the pinch weld with the -12 mm, and with the -24 mm trimming even more.
How far will a rim stick out?
The more -mm offset a rim has the less it will stick out. If you run a wider aftermarket rim you’ll need more -mm offset to match stock, but on our tundras you can easily have a rim stick out 1″ more than stock and still look OK. I will guess that the rim you listed will stick out about 1.5″ more than stock.
Does negative offset help with rubbing?
On these trucks, moving the wheel outboard almost always causes more rubbing. The exception is if you have a wide enough tire on the stock wheels, the tires can rub on the radius arms. To avoid rubbing, look at 20×9 wheels with +18 mm offset or perhaps 0 mm offset. Going negative is just going to make it worse.
What is negative wheel offset?
Negative offset is when the hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. A negative offset wheel usually has a “deep lip” Zero offset The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.
Does wheel offset affect alignment?
Changing wheel size/offset will not affect the settings as they are, the wheels are aligned to the vehicle dependent upon the suspension design, which is in turn designed usually for a specific size and offset tire/rim combination and handling characteristics.
Is 10mm offset too much?
if you wheels are very into the wheel well, 10mm might make your car look better as the wheels will stick out a bit. The width of the wheels that you are buying is the key thing to bring into the equation. If they are the same width as yours, ideally limit your choices to those with an offset of at least +45(mm.)
What is a 5’2 offset?
The second number indicates the distance from the mounting plate to the outer bead. For example, a 5+2 offset means there is 5” from the back/inner bead to the mounting plate, 2” from the mounting plate to the outer bead.
What is a high positive offset wheel?
Offset of 35mm to 55mm is typically called a High Positive offset. The offset also tells your how far the rim’s mounting surface is from the vehicle’s fender. Low Positive offset is further from the rim, High Positive offset is the closest. Most front wheel drive cars have a High Positive offset.
How do I choose an offset?
Subtract the smaller number from the larger number. That gives you the offset of the wheel. If the centerline number is smaller than the hub measurement, offset is positive….Wheel Offset Basics
