so i was making sure of what offset do i have on my wheels. they are SSR Schumacher 16x7. i search online and every wheel site gives out different offset, ranging from +36 to +45! i was wondering if anyone know the exact offset, or can i just find the offset by myself? thanks

The Shumachers, IIRC, are multipiece wheels, so they will have a range of offsets given on what the original purchaser/order wanted. There should be a sticker on the back of the rim, or an imprint of what it is. Itll be small and simple probably like "+30" or something. (thats just an example). You may have to measure it out to really find out the true offset of your individual set.

You can find out fairly easy even without the stickers.
They always have it printed on the wheels spokes or something..

It should have a stamp with the letter " E/T" or "ET" then whatever the offsets are. If you like bring a wheel with you to one of the meets and I can take a look for you...

Its hard to describe. Check out that diagram above though. Youll measure 3.5" in from the inner most spot of the rim before it goes to inner lip. Then use a string to make that the middle line and hang it in the center of the rim, then measure from mounting hub to string. It sounds stupid and hard, so that diagram does it better. Too bad Im not in Cali I could do it for ya easy.

sorry my description kinda sucks. if i was there it would so much easier! LOL

someone take me to Cali....

any how you can measure it anything you want, but youll want to convert it to mms later, so you might as well do it then.

ok, i feel stupid right now. i want out to the garage and measure the wheel, then came back to look at the picture about, then i found out i measure it wrong. LOL! so here is the question, where do i measure the wheel from to get the midpoint of the wheel? here are few pics of it:



so is it from point A, point B, point C, or D: none of the above?


thanks.

alright, so while i am waiting for you guys to answer those questions, i went ahead and clean some of the wheels. look what i found out!

similar wheels.


i just found out that these rims has different numbers. this one reads "35".


this one reads "32".


i went and checked the other 2 wheels. they have the same number, 32 and 35. do you guys think they are the offset?

if they are really the offset, then that means that on the driver's side, the wheels will be running 32 offset, while the passenger side will be running 35 offset...
