Here is a link to Tire Rack tech page. Good info on what all these terms mean.


ive got a 93 325is, and i have a chance to get these rims which are 9.5 inches wide....

the backspacing is 7 inches..... that is all the way to the inside of the tire....

the total width with the tire on the rim is 10 inches...

so i guess its 7 inches backspacing, 3 inches forward spacing.

tell me what kind of modifications i would be looking at, and what it would look like fitment wise.

i dont know what all the mm offset measurements mean, i just know how to measure in inches.. please try to help me people
