If you’re buying new rims for your MiniTruck, you will need to know it’s offset and how it affects your particular truck.
The offset of a vehicle’s wheel is the distance between the centerline of the wheel and the plane of the hub-mounting surface of the wheel. It is typically measured in millimeters. Wheels are usually stamped with their offset such as “ET45” for a 45mm offset.
Offset has a significant effect on many elements of a vehicle’s suspension, including suspension geometry, clearance between the tire and suspension elements, the scrub radius of the steering system, and visually, the width of the wheel face relative to the car’s bodywork.
