Could someone please explain offset to me.. Like what the numbers/ rim dimentions ect.?

Poke? Tuc.?

Any info gratefully recived..

The reason behind this is That when ppl talk about this it means nothing.. And iv just spent 700 on the wheels ive dreamed of all my life.. On my dream car.. And they just don't look rite at all.! B

But iv seen this wheel on this car a million times.! So Im assuming it has something to do with the but I no nothing about.

Sorry if your as confused as I am.. Big love

Offset is usually marked on the wheels after the letter ET so this is what people refer to when talking about ETs.

The ET is measured from the centreline of the wheel, so for example the wheel is 300mm wide and the ET40. The centreline is at 150, the mounting face would be 40mm further out than that meaning the back spacing would be 190mm.

Im sure that sounds more confusing, but its really quite simple. theres alot of site out there that expain it better with pics etc.
