    Default Superlite Offset

    Looking to replace the rear wings with a pair of Westerman CF ones
    I am trying to determine the offset of my superlite to make sure I order the correct ones but think I am way off
    I came up with negative 35mm but me thinks I am wrong
    I got
    250mm from the ground to the flange / 2 = 125mm
    160mm from the hub face to the flange
    125 - 160 = >35mm

    Anyone know the correct answer?

    Have you ever found out the correct offset? We'll be working on buddy's Superlite soon right after we finished installing the brake kit and method wheels on the current truck project.

    I do not understand how you are measuring the offset. Measure from the lip on the back of the wheel to the mounting flange (where the wheel bolts to the car) then measure from the mounting flange to the lip on the front of the wheel. The difference is the offset. A good way to do it is to get something to put across the wheel flanges so you can acurately measure to the mounting flange.
