: OEM wheel size / offset confusion

09-25-2004, 11:06 PM
I have notice several people listing incorrect wheel size and offset for OEM rims. I was doing my tire rotation today and double checked the OEM wheels. They are 16" x 6.5" J +45 as written inside the spokes of the OEM rims. I have seen several members list them as 16" x 6" yet others claiming offset to be +48. I hope this helps others make more informed decisions on tire / wheel selections.

Clearly marked on my OEM Wrangler HPs, mounted on the OEM rims: "DO NOT MOUNT ON 16.5 INCH RIMS."

Oh, DUH. 16.5" tall rims.

My bad.

I recently read here that the Element wheels are a perfect replacement for CR-V rims, so if anyone knows the CR-V offset they now also know the Element wheel's offset. Assuming it's all true of course.

I am not sure what you are adding to the mix here but why would we need to know the offset for an OEM CR-V wheel when we can just read it off the Element OEM wheel.

16.5 inch diameter wheels.

I'm not trying to be the grammar police, just trying to help others understand what you mean.

Hehe, just saw that, Genom. Of course you are correct.
