It changes depending on the width of the wheel.
Stockies are +0, most 8" wide rims are about +6.
This is so most of the extra width gets pushed inwards, not out towards the guard.

Wrong!! kinda...

6" stockies are +6mm offset. Havnt been able to measure my original Fairmont rim properly cause of the tyre

And yes the offset can change with the width of a wheel. People think they have to stick to +6mm to fit their e-series but it all depends on the backspacing whether its gonna fit.

I had 7" performance alloys in e-series offset and after measuring found that they were +10 offset but still fitted fine.

90% of the people who run adapters are also running seriously gay wheels.

learn to deal with it.
adding rims to a car is a very personal thing so finding those perfect wheels are often very hard. who gives a rats s**t what offset they are as long as they dont stick too far in and dont rub.

is there any legalities about offset? do they HAVE to be within a certain region?

I don't think you'd find many people who'd call my Simmons FR18's gay - I guess that's why people pay $900 a wheel for them...

I thought it was 90% of people who AREN'T running adapters have seriously gay wheels, either that or they have factory 'alloys'. E-Series wheel options suck a***.

you have it all wrong. %90 of people who are running NON FACTORY WHEELS, have seriously gay wheels. honestly it seems no one has taste anymore.
the bigger and gayer the wheels are, the more people seem to want them.

and who runs adapters on their Fr18's which come in e-series offset?

thats the whole point of 3 piece wheels. can come in any offset....


and Damo yes there are alot of gay wheels in e series offset but it seems there are alot more wheels out there which are even gayer and people are willing to use adapters to get them.

From what i've heard and seen so far X and E series rims are interchangeable but A series have different offsets and therefore may not be interchangeable?

They are all five stud with the same PCD though(?).
