Hey guys,

Im look at getting bolt on wire wheels 16x7 for my nl fairlane, now they have the same stud pattern, but it says it come with a 100 mm back space? what does that mean? Is it the same as the (e series offset +6)?? He said it has a standard offset if that helps.

These are not the same wires you see, that are held on by a reverse knock off, these actually bolt on like a normal wheels, thats why im asking.

100mm backspace is 4 inch in the old money which is pretty much what pre AU wheels are. I reckon you will be right.

awesome as thanks mate :)

What would be the widest tire i could fit if i roll the back guards? Ive got positive front camber too.

I was looking at 225/50R16, just wondering if i might be able to go up a size or to.
