    Chart for converting wheel backspacing to offset

    Since most wheels made for american cars (muscle, drag) are detailed with backspacing and not offset, I found this chart to convert it for you. Pretty neat.

    Please PM me when you want a thread stuck. I don't read every thread I saved it on CS too, to be safe.

    Lay wheel on ground, so that the backside is exposed.

    Get some sort of straight edge that is long enough to lie across the circumference of the wheel.

    Get a yard stick or tape measure. The "0" end goes against the flush face of the center part of the wheel (where the center of the wheel meets the hub). Take measurement. What does the measuring device say, when it gets to the straight edge???
