In Reply to: Question about offsets and spacers. posted by Mark5 on April 23, 1999 at 16:57:25:

The offset of the wheels have not changed...they are still the same wheels...:)
The positon of the outer lip would appear to be that of a 32mm offset wheel
This throws the suspension geometry off...and changes the load displacement.


: I'm a little confused about offsets and spacers. If I have say a 37mm offset rim and add a 5mm spacer do I then have the equivalent of a 42mm offset rim. Or am I backward and I would have the equivalent of a 32mm offset rim. Does the spacer push the wheel outward to the fender?
