    someone explain this 'offset' shit to me.
    what does +40 offset mean? id like the rims to stick out a little bit. not out past the fender, but out to the fender.
    someone make sense of shti for me.
     
  2. That means they're at least at Level 6 Mage and can perform basic Lightning Spells and Heal.

    Note: You may need to acquire the Staff of Undurin to perform some Lightning Spells.

    offset
    The offset of a wheel is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is positioned in front of the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This in effect brings the tire in to the fender well more. Conversely, a negative offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This will cause the tire to stick out away from the vehicle.

    IMO, All the holes in universal wheels are lame, the dish looks good...Are these going to work with the styling of your car? Do you know the weight? did you ever get your suspension? Seeks, what are your plans for your dub, I'm curious.

    they're going on a 03 jetta.
    they look alot like the oem BBS rims off the wolsfburg, but 2" bigger.
    they're 18x7.5, 21lbs each.
    teh stock center caps can probably be replaced with vw ones.
