Frequently Asked Wheel Questions.
The offset of a wheel is the distance from the hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel, which is measured in millimeters and results in a positive, negative, or zero offset.
In short, a positive offset wheel will sit more tucked towards the vehicle while a negative offset wheel will sit pushed further outwards from the vehicle.
Yes. A vehicle’s wheel & tire combination has a significant impact on ride quality. Generally speaking, a more comfortable ride can be achieved when a vehicle’s tire sidewall has been maximized due to the amount of “cushion” the tire has when handling bumps. A tire’s sidewall is the vertical area on the side of the tire between the edge of the tread and the bead of the wheel.
Due to the fact that tire diameter is limited, the larger the wheel diameter, the less tire sidewall, which ultimately leads to a less comfortable ride.
Matte finish will reflect little to no light, satin finish retains a moderate sheen, whereas gloss finishes reflect the most light and have the most sheen.
Satin and matte finishes are preferred for durability and easiness to keep clean. Gloss finish on the other hand offers more prominence but will easily show dirt, brake dust, and other debris found on the road.
In most cases, yes. However, the factory wheel diameter, width and offset specs are deeply considered in context and may limit the type of suspension modification that can be installed on your vehicle.
Although not ideal, a small wheel spacer may be installed on factory wheels in some cases to accommodate a modified suspension, wheel & tire combination.
