TRX wheel offset query
« on: Dec 10, 2005, 09:53PM »
Guys i know the offset of the TRX wheels is 38+, well thats what i have on there now.

but i need to know whether a wheel with an offset of 40+ would fit. The stud pattern is still 4x114.3 and this guy tells me pintaras can take an offset between 30 and 50.

sooo, is this guy talking verbal diarrhea???

Unless he has test fitted the wheels with a specific tyre width and offset the best he can do is make an educated guess as to what will fit according to the specs... without scrubbing.

Is your car lowered or going to lowered in the future?

I had 16x7 rims +38 offset running 205 tyres and they JUST fit.  Urq was the same sizem width and offset and his tyres are 215's... they scrubbed on the back until we rolled the guards.

they will fit no probs at all, you will probably have to get your guards rolled though. i hade these on my old corsair and had to get the guards rolled. they were also 215 tyres

$50 max to get the guards rolled or cut out completely. a panel shop will cut them out for you, if you go that way

If the rims your looking at on ebay are running 205 tyres then they will be fine.

What do the numbers on tyres mean, eg 205, 215, etc. and there are a couple of other numbers that are often reported along with that one, what do they mean aswell??

e.g. 215/45R16

215 is the width of the tyre in mm
45 is the profile of the tyre. It means that the sidewall height is 45% of the width of the tyre
R16 means 16" rim
