I have been through the various threads and Google and cant find a definitive answer. I have a 1993 HZJ75 Troopy currently fitted with Sunraysia rims and 31 x 10.5-16 six stud rims. I told the rim offset is confined to Troopys only. My issue is i can't find out what the offset is. I have a couple of spares off a ute but don't want to go bush if they are going to scrub. Can anyone explain the offset and how to check it?

Ian
Get a piece of paper or thin cardboard.
Cut a strip the so it's length goes from the outer rim edge to the inner rim edge.
Fold it in half.
That half line is the rim centre.

Tape the strip onto the inside of the rim so each end is in place ie, to ouert and inner edges.

Use a flat piece of metal/cardboard/plastic/rule and place it's edge onto the inner face of the rim centre.

Slide it out until it touches the strip.

Where that line touches will be towards the outside of the rim if a positive offset.

If no offset the line will touch the centre of the strip.

If the line touches the rim inwards of the strip centre it is a negative offset rim. Any distance in mm. from the line to the strip centre is the amount of offset, be it pos or neg.

Hi
I think you will find the rim is 15inch not 16inch
Rim most likely will be a 15x7 inch, but may be 15x8 inch

Cheers
