    Wheel offset

    As above! How do I work out the current offset I am running if its no stamped on the LM reps that are on there at the mo? It has hub centric spacers aswell 10mm front & 15mm rear which I gather I take off the alloy wheel offset?

    If the wheel is et35 and you add a 10mm spacer your overall et is 25.

    This is correct. Remove the spacer width from your wheel ET.

    ET35 -10 (spacer) =ET25

    My bad cheers all , I was looking to put staggered wheels on & possibly squeeze 9.5 or 10" on the back and possibly 8.5 on front with the current setup the car has a really good stance which I'd like to keep.
