    205 GTi wheel offset.

    G'day all,

    I have been looking at rims for the Pug, and have found the size as 4/108 15/25 mm offset.

    Can anyone tell me if thats a positive or negative 15/25 mm offset?

    Ta

    Dood,

    I know the 205 series two I have been looking for in those crooked NZ wrecker yards will fit.

    If I go aftermarket rims, is the offset - 15 or + 15 on the axis?

    If you get some 15 or 16 inch Secta's(motofom I think) from a mag shop they'll do the alignment etc, with the price !
    Have a chat with Andreas he will probably know where you can get some adjustable camber caps for the front suspention.

    Camber caps? are these like a spacer or something to get the correct offset on an incorrect offset wheel?

    No...... these are an adjustable bracket which house the top of the shock absorber.
    These caps can be adjusted clockwise or anti- clockwise to adjust camber.
    Excellent for club racing on a track with a lot of turns in one direction !!

    Wheel offset is very important. if its wrong, your going to have horrid steering and go through steering racks every 6months to year. dont know what it should be but best find out what orignal specs are n compare.

    205 Dude,

    Thats what I am trying to do !!

    I know its a 15 mm offset, another site had it as 15/25 mm.

    What I need to know is the 15 mm offset towards the inside or the outside of the rim?...as in where the hell do they measure the 15 mm from ???

    Anyone??

    Cheers

    the offset is the distance between the backface[the mounting surface of the wheel] and the centreline of the wheel,the distance is expressed in millimeters. the centre line is an imaginary line running right thru the middle of wheel looking down on it. a positive offset is referred to when the backface is located toward the front of the wheel relative to the centreline. a neg. offset is when the backface is located BEYOND the c/line toward the back of the wheel. offst can also be called the 'et' sorry cant make it any clearer. cheers jr
