Introduction & Offset

Last Updated: 01/10/99

Introduction

This article is a compilation of various contributors' experiences and opinions on different aftermarket wheels. It is broken-down by manufacturer.

Please note that the contributors' experiences are generally with the wheels on various model year Integras. However, the information can be applied to the same wheel across various sizes on different vehicles.

Use the drop-down menu at the top of this page to view different manufacturers.


About Wheel Offset

Offset is the distance in mm between the centerline of the wheel and the mounting surface of the wheel.

Stock wheels for the 94+ Integras are 15 x 6.0 with 45mm offset.

Generally, if you increase the width of the wheel by 0.5", you want to subtract 0.5"/2 x 25.4mm/inch or about 6mm offset. This perserves the intended wheel geometry. However, there are some limitations, due to interference with the shape of the fenders and possibly other components:

From: Wisrute Buddhari (wbuddhri@uop.edu)
Warning: For those who are looking for rims for your (lowered) Integra, try to stay away from anything wider than 7 inch with 35mm offset (use 38-40mm), or your tires may rub the fenders! Stick with 205 tires, if you want to go real low.

Or, you can try rolling the fender lip. See Rolling the Fender Lip for Clearance
