What Is Rim Offset?

Answer

Rim offset is the distance from the rim hub mounting surface to the centreline of the wheel. To determine the rim offset of your rim, you should position the rim on a flat surface and measure its overall width then divide the overall width by two before subtracting this result from the backspace value.
