Haha cool, sorry for being a d**k. I work in an alcohol and drug detox unit... It gets hard to be nice sometimes when you spend all wknd dealing with people and being overly nice, when really just want to tell them to shut the f**k up!

Had a guy that was sooo depressing this wknd that he just sucked the life out of me. Got to the point i felt like saying 'You know what mate, your life really is just that s**t! Give up, just give up now cos it never going to be any better!'

Cheers Paul.

P.s. I can only say that 'I believe the information i have given is correct'.... If someone shows otherwise... Than dam i'm gunna be looing like a big d**k! But hey it happens.


HHAHAHa! as an old workmate once said to a young whinger at the wreckers.

"oooh, look there's a hole out the back, go lay in it an slit ya wrists, make sure u don't make a mess cos I'm not cleaning up after you but I'll kick some dirt over you later"

faaark we all lost it laffin!!!

Anytime after if we got p****d off or whatever one would look to the other (me or him) and say
"f**k this, where's that hole"

I still do today, people look at me like "whaa?" but it cheers me up!

Au onwards rims will bolt on the back of eseries they just sit way inside the gaurds. The fronts deffinatly need spacers but.

Yeah I tried the same rim I did on the front on the rear, but it looked wrong. Like I had a short diff or somthing lol!

IF (I wouldn't anyway) I were to use spacers Id go with all 4 wheels.

Positive offset means the hub moves further out from the centre of the rim towards the outer lip.
Negative offset is what gives you genuine dish (not curved spokes).
AUs up run an offset of +36 which is 36mm out from the centre of the rim towards the outer lip.
ELs and older run an offset of 0 (stock 15x6 rims). The +6 offset is normally found with rims which are a touch wider, in order to keep the wheel track within ADRs, as the +6 brings the wheel a touch closer to the body offsetting the wider rim and tyre combo.

You need 35mm spacers to run AU+ rims that are 8" wide. I believe to run the territory steelies as they are 17x7 you can use 30mm spacers, but then you cant run any decent BA rims so 30mm are pointless.

I've had a set of 35mm spacers now for probably 2 - 2.5 years now with no issues.

Yeah, I had that part sorted.

The spacers that at illegal are the flat metal plate ones cos the studs will be shorter sticking thru the rims.

The block type ones with studs in them I didn't think were illegal and as long as they are torqued up correctly I've been told they have no issues.

But for the extra $500 for 4 (new that is) I may as well buy some rims with correct offset anyway.

Thanks to all for the info.

man if you used the search function...

I even drew pics up for this once before...

Krisisdog did a job to explain that, but a pic says a thousand words...

post955289.html?hilit=offset#p955289

And for the record the pic I drew shows a positive offset wheel... a negative would have the rim centre on the other side of the face...

Le me know if anything needs clarifying...

Cheers,
Tim

No, theyre all illegal.
Extra $500 is a lot to get them in the correct offset, what wheels are you buying?

I'm still window shopping ATM,
but basically I was wondering cos as you may have gathered I thought the territory stockers were bolt on (same offset as EA) and looking on eBay there are a few nice looking sets of 17's goin cheaper than similar 17's for EAs, so I figured I'd suss it out first. Lol, lucky I did I guess.
But now I got it all cleared up I'll just go for correct offset an save screwing around.
