about a year ago I was at the dealership (used to work for an Auto Group that has a Toyota Dealership) and they said the slight vibration I was feeling was due to a bent rim and that I must have hit a curb... I have never hit a curb but as this is a used car it must have been the orignal owner who did it, so they swaped it front to back... well its getting on time to replace the tires (Sunew brand... compleat and total junk but were new on the car when I got it) and was thinking maybe its time to also replace the rim, I like the style but I need to know more info about the rim. I can find them for about 80 each on ebay but how do I know what the offset is and the like, the rim is the Ninja NJ01 and it says 17x7J on it any ideas on how to tell if its +40 or +45?

well when I was at the dealer ship it was supposed to be balanced as well, but when I get new tires I will see what the tire shop says cause the Sunew brand is cheap Chinese junk, only place I can find em is some uk site and the general consensus is that you should not buy them.

Yea let the tire shop show you also how much off they are as far as balanced. If rims have any areas that have to much material that will throw off concentricity and will need many weights to set the balance at zero.
