The offset of a wheel is what locates the tire and wheel assembly in relation to the suspension. More specifically, it is the measured distance between the hub mounting surface and the center line of the wheel.


The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.


If the hub mounting surface is on the brake side of the center line of the wheel, it is considered a negative offset or "deep dish".


The hub mounting surface is on the street side (the side you see) of the center line of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

NOTE: If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes. 

DJ says, "If clearance allows you should be ok as long as you split the additional width evenly between the inside and outside."
