Rim offset

What offset rim works the best on a 52 F1 with stock front axle to fill wheel wells and look great?

Thanks,

Oscar

Might be easier to just measure the clearances yourself and figure the backspace that would work best, all sizes of rims out there plus each rim size can take different sized tires, section width and heights come into effect now.

Lots of good charts to help in picking sizes, google around.

Just did my whole truck, but not your set-up.

Here's a great tutorial on how to measure for your new wheels (ie. backspacing, offset, diameter, and width).

ps. Here's a good reference for tire measurements based on sizes. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tirete...e.jsp?techid=7
