    Default Wheel Offset/Backspace/Tyre Size Calculator

    Stumbled across this on the interwebs, thought it would probably be helpful for a few people on here, gives nice clear results regarding tire selection/backspace/offset/rolling diameter, etc, etc...

    This will be good if you know what the current offset is , most people talk backspace which is different. Good item .

    This is great, Thanks man. No Holden selection though... I guess BMW Series 7 is the same.

    I recently was shopping for new rims for my HZ ute and came across this on OLD Holden;

    Stud Patterns - Holdenpaedia - It is great for getting the OFFsets and PCDs and if I had spotted this post - life would have been so much easier - great little tool thanks for sharing

    On this subject;
    I bought a set of these Series 111 Specifications - Muscle Car - 2 Piece - Eagle Alloy Wheels - from these guys Brands | SD Wheel Corp.

    At this point you might be thinking big deal - the twist in my story is the car is located in Dublin Ireland, so I do not have a supply chain which caters for these vehicles, and the reason I posted was, yes the difficulty I had finding out the PCDs and Offsets for my vehicle and as NONE of the wheel suppliers locally had a clue when I went and asked them if they could assist with finding the details from the wheels on the vehicle - best I got was BMW - ok, but what offset do I need to clear brakes,calipers etc, we don't know?

    So it was on to the net, starting searching, found the guys at SDwheels - a few emails, some confirmation and the wheels shipped from the USA - I must say the cost of the rims was very reasonable US$450 approximately for the set including hardware and chrome valve stems - can't be bad. With shipping (UPS) it all come to US$800 approximately - the sting in the tail was the local tax I had to pay our government (nearly as much as the rims), but such is life if want the nice things in it.
