DETERMINING PROPER FITMENT

2020-8-20Center line in cm = (Wheel width in inches x 2 54) 2 Using my wheel as an example: First we convert the wheel width into centimeters: 10in x 2 54 = 25 4cm And then divide that in half to find the center line: 25 4cm 2 = 12 7cm Here is the formula for back space with an example: Center line in cm + offset in cm = Back space 12 7cm + 3

To measure the backspace take a straight edge that is at least as large as the wheel/tire diameter that you plan to use and place it against the brake drum (or rotor face if using disc brakes) Now you can take a measuring device (tape measure or ruler) and measure the distance from the straight edge to the inner fender of the car

Wheel diameter can have a major impact on fitment since a larger diameter wheel than the car was designed for can sometimes mean you're stuck running a "taller" tire (greater overall diameter) because you can't get a tire with a low enough aspect ratio (or short enough sidewall)

01 We'll start with the simplest measurement but it is one area of confusion It's common knowledge that the advertised rim width is measured at the bead seat but for the purpose of stuffing the maximum tire and wheel package under your car you need to know the overall width This 15x7 wheel measure
