Thanks. May I quote you?Limey said:They are two different ways of explaining the same thing.
'Offset' is the distance between the wheel centreline and the wheel mounting face.
'Backspace' is the distance between the wheel mounting face and the inner edge of the wheel rim.
If both the wheel width and the ET (offset) are known, then the backspace can be calculated.
If the width and backspace are known, then the ET can be calculated.
