Re: stud pattern/offset

offset = 0 (zero)[or as close as possible]
PDC= 5 x 114.3

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: stud pattern/offset

That's PCD (Pitch Circle Diameter) and is the same as 5 x 4.5"

Offset is zero if wheels are stock width, it'll be different of they are wider which I'm guessing they would be!

Re: stud pattern/offset

PCD i always type that wrong

So if you have 7" rims with zero offset, that means 3.5" inches either side of the centre of the rim, now assuming that 3.5" is the inside measuremnt allowable, and you goto 8" wide rims, then the offset would be 1" , now is that a positive or negative offset or how is it stated when shopping for rims ??

Yep, with you so far

OK

Nope. It'd be 1/2" measured from the wheel centreline (4") to the mounting face (3.5")

Negative as the mounting face is inboard of the wheel centreline.

Though if you have followed this you'll probably know more than the guy at the tyre shop and just end up confusing them.

Re: stud pattern/offset

OK so to go wider (and stay within insurance limits) you would be looking at 8" wide rims with a PCD of 5x114.3mm or 5x4.5" and a negative offset of around 10mm or so.

Only if this is correct;

I didn't think stockies were 7" but you've got the right idea.

Happy shopping :)
