What is my wheel offset?
A wheel’s offset is determined by measuring the distance between the wheel centerline and the mounting surface on the back of the wheel. The offset is measured in millimeters, which can be positive, zero or negative.
What size tires go on a 2004 Acura TL?
Standard size 235/45/17 tire on OEM Acura TL wheel.
Can I change wheel offset?
Can I change offset without changing wheels? Yes. Companies make wheel spacers with varying thicknesses which allow you to change the offset of your wheel quickly and easily. The wheel spacers essentially reduce the distance from the center of the wheel to the hub, thus reducing positive offset.
Where does it say the offset on a rim?
Nearly every wheel has the offset stamped on it somewhere. Typically, the number is stamped on the back of the spokes. It can be cast into the face, stamped into the barrel, or even printed on the outside of the barrel. If a wheel doesn’t have the offset clearly stamped, it can be easily measured.
Is positive or negative offset better?
Positive offset means that the mounting plate is in the outside half of the wheel, toward the wheel face. Most OEM wheels, and most wheels in general, will have a positive offset. Negative offset means the mounting plate is on the other side of the wheel’s centerline, farther toward the suspension.
Does positive offset push wheels out?
A “positive” offset is where the mounting surface of the wheel is closer to the outside (fender side) of the wheel. This pushes the wheel in toward the brakes which can “sink” the tire and wheel into the fender well opening.
What size tires are on a 2005 Acura TL?

How do you read a tire size?
The two-digit number after the slash mark in a tire size is the aspect ratio. For example, in a size P215/65 R15 tire, the 65 means that the height is equal to 65% of the tire’s width. The bigger the aspect ratio, the bigger the tire’s sidewall will be.
Does offset matter buying wheels?
Wheel offset refers to how the wheels mount in your wheel wells, and as a result, how much space you have on either side of the wheel. It’s very important to get this right, because a wheel with the wrong offset can rub and cause problems with your suspension, brakes, and even body parts, like fenders.
Is negative offset bad for your truck?
Most accelerated wear on components is negligible at worst. A wider wheel with negative offset will still follow the angle of the hub, and remain flat, and only introduce wear at the highest levels of suspension compression. The ball joints will take the brunt of any abuse, not the bearings.
How much wheel offset is acceptable?
Even if the tire and wheel have enough clearance, the wrong offset can decrease vehicle stability. Generally, with new wheels, you don’t want the new offset to be more than 5 millimeters different from the old offset.
How do I know if rims will fit my car?
The two easiest ways are to check the sticker plate in your car, it should be located inside the driver side door, or look online for the vehicle specifications for your exact make and model. That should tell you the standard rim size.
What does 7.5 J mean on wheels?
The wheels width is usually written beside the flange shape marking – e.g: 7j, 7.5j, 8.0j. The width of the wheel is basically the area shown on the photo above and it is measured in inches. In other words, the bigger the number, the “thicker” your wheels are.
