When deciding on the selection of aluminium rims for your car, in addition to looking carefully at the designs and choosing the proposal that suits you best aesthetically, you should also check their parameters. The graphical rim calculator available on our website allows you to understand the issue related to their change and selection..
In order to use our rim calculator, the parameters of the rim you currently own should be checked carefully - by entering them as the base rim. Comparison of the rim currently in use with the alternative parameters of the new rim will show by how many mm outwards or inwards the new rim will be exposed in comparison to the base rim.
One of the basic data when selecting a rim is the offset. This is the horizontal distance between the mounting plane of the rim and its plane of symmetry. This can be seen in the offset calculator. This factor determines how the wheel is positioned in the wheel arch. In order to make the rim more prominent, the offset parameter should decrease, while an increase in this parameter means that the rim is set deeper into the wheel arch. At the same time, the width of the rim should also be considered, which also has an influence on more or less prominence..
The parameters related to the offset should be selected in such a way that the wheel does not rub against either the mudguard or the suspension components - even when fully loaded. This is why we recommend using the configurator where you select your car. Of course, all orders are verified by our experts.
