Check out this link. It shows you a picture what and how offset is measured. Spacers are sometimes needed if the offset is still not proper and you need to clear your brakes from the wheels hitting. Hope the link helps.

sweet thanks
so basically offset is how far the surface of the curb side of the rim is to the middle of the wheel right? also how do spacers protect ur brakes? do they move the rim more so that theres a greater offset?


thanks

Yeah it just gives them more clearance.
