What does 4×3 offset mean?

For example: An ATV wheel with a 4+3 offset will measure 4″ from the inside lip to the center of the rim where the hub and rim meet, and then it will measure 3″ from the hub to the outside lip. The two numbers added together will total the overall width of the rim.

How much offset is 2 inches?

about 50 millimeters
Calculate the offset. Then, subtract that number from the backspacing. For example, if the width I’d measured is 8 inches, my wheel centerline should be at 4 inches. Then, if my backspacing is 6 inches, 6 inches minus 4 inches is 2 inches. The offset is 2 inches, or about 50 millimeters.

How do I know how much offset I need?

Measure the distance from the floor to the straight edge and divide by two. That calculates the centerline of the wheel. If the centerline number is smaller than the hub measurement, offset is positive; if it is larger, offset is negative. 4.

What is a 5+2 offset?

When the hub is placed toward the outer half of the wheel, like the 5+2 offset, the more the wheel is tucked in under the machine; this improves width clearance by minimizing the overall width of your rig.

What does 3+5 offset mean on a wheel?

When the hub is placed toward the inner half of the of the wheel, like the 3+5 offset, the more the wheel sticks out beyond the fender; this will increase the overall width of your rig or “widen your stance”, improve its stability and create room for larger tires.

What is the offset of a rim?

The offset of a wheel will determine where the wheel sits in relation to your vehicle. Every rim has an offset that consists of 2 numbers that are measurements. The first number is the measurement (in inches) from the inside lip of the rim, to the center of the rim where the hub and rim meet.
