Lay off, he only has 2 posts, therefore He probably doesnt use the forums often, give him a hand, hold the comment. Im sure you appiciate help if you needed it, its that what forums are for? Helping eachother?

Do you know how many pointless threads there would be if every time someone had a question they started a new thread rather than doing a little bit of homework?

I agree 100% that forums are for helping each other but a thread should only be started asking for advice/clarification/opinion after a bit of due diligence (i.e. google search, forum search).

Well that's why online communities have moderators.

Both Bullet_Ride and I provided the answer to the original poster's question, as well as a gentle kick in the ass. It seemed both might be helpful.

The offset corresponds to the width of the rim and with that delivers where the wheel sits according to the hub of the vehicle. The higher the offset the further in the wheel will sit on the vehicle, the lower the offset the further out the wheel will come on the vehicle.

If you have any further questions feel free to give us a call and we can explain in more detail.
