What does offset rims mean?

Offset refers to how your car’s or truck’s wheels and tires are mounted and sit in the wheel wells.

Most wheels on front-wheel drive cars and newer rear-drive vehicles have positive offset.

What do staggered rims mean?

Staggered fitment (sometimes called a staggered application) means the tires – and in many cases also the wheels – are different sizes in the front of the car versus the rear. Although there are some all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive vehicles designed with staggered fitments, these are pretty rare exceptions.

Do staggered wheels affect handling?

Staggered tire setups can also encourage a level of handling safety and security. Staggered tire setups with smaller width tires at the front axle generally produce understeer near the handling limit.

Do staggered tires wear faster?

With staggered tyre sizes, the rear tyres will usually wear out faster than the front tyres. This is especially true for very powerful rear-wheel-drive cars. This is because you don’t want different tyres having varying levels of performance.

Why are rear tires wider?

You may also notice that some enthusiasts instead choose a much wider tire for the rear axles as compared to what they put up front. The theory behind this is that it gives you as much rubber as possible to transmit power to the pavement, thus ensuring excellent traction for higher horsepower, rear-wheel drive cars.

What is wheel backspace?

Backspace is the distance from a wheel’s mounting surface to the back edge of the wheel in inches. An example may simplify this: The centerline of a 10-inch-wide wheel is at five inches. If the wheel has a 6-inch backspace, then the offset is positive. Conversely, a 4-inch backspace would make the offset negative.

What do square wheels mean?

: a wheel (of a car or locomotive) that has a flat spot on its rim.

Is it bad to have wider tires in the back?

When a rear-wheel-drive car has a lot of power, it can cause wheelspin easily which is why wider rear tyres can give better traction. While it’s fine to put narrower tyres on the front and wider on the back, it’s pointless to put wider tyres on just one side of the car.

Why are BMW wheels staggered?
