What does offset mean for rims?

Offset refers to how your car’s or truck’s wheels and tires are mounted and sit in the wheel wells. Positive wheel offset is when the hub mounting surface is in front (more toward the street side) of the centerline of the wheel. Most wheels on front-wheel drive cars and newer rear-drive vehicles have positive offset.

How do I determine Rim offset?

Subtract the smaller number from the larger number. That gives you the offset of the wheel. If the centerline number is smaller than the hub measurement, offset is positive.

Does offset matter on rims?

In other words, offset determines the lateral, or side to side, position of the wheel. As wheel widths change, the offset combined with the new width must be chosen properly so that the wheel and tire have enough space within the wheelwell to avoid rubbing or unwanted contact with other components.

What is an ogee cap?

Ogees are also often used in building interiors, in trim carpentry, for capping a baseboard or plinth elements, as a crown moulding trim piece where a wall meets a ceiling, and in similar fashion, at the tops of pieces of case furniture.

Is negative offset bad?

Too much negative offset (the wheel sits too far outwards from the car) can also contribute to poor handling due to additional stresses on the suspension components. The steering wheel can flick back in hard cornering causing unstable handling and a possible accident.

Do negative offset wheels stick out?

A negative offset gives an inset or deep-dish look: -44 is deeper than -12. The wheel will also stick out from the truck.

Is positive or negative offset better?

If your offset is too positive, you risk the inside of the tire hitting your suspension. To fix this, bring the offset down, so it’s closer to zero. This moves the tire out. If your offset is too negative, then the outside of the tire will rub on the car’s body and fenders.
