Default Re: Other cars with same bolt pattern

Ok my last post may not have been clear enough so here goes again.

Picture a wheel. Look at it from side of the rim so you can see the front and back at the same time. Keep that image in mind.

Now think about when you put the wheels on your car. When you put the wheel on your car there is a flat part that touchs the rotors and keeps your wheel sitting flat. It has the center hole for lining up the wheels on the rotors and the five holes for the lugs to go through. We will call that the mounting plate.

Back to the image of your wheel. If the mounting plate were exactly in the dead center of the wheel, that would be zero (0) offset.
If the mounting plate were more towards the front of the wheel that would be posative (+) offset. If the mounting plate was more towards the rear of the wheel that would be negative (-) offset.
