Q: What is wheel backspacing?

A:The distance from the inner edge of the wheel to the hub mount pad. Note: Sometimes the distance from the outer edge of the wheel to the hub mount pad is referred erroneously to as offset. BE CAREFUL!

Q:What is wheel offset?

A: It is the distance from the centerline to the hub mount pad (where the wheel attaches to the hub). POSITIVE OFFSET - The hub-mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. NEGATIVE OFFSET - The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline.

he hub is what pokes thru the small hole that is in the center of the wheel... therefore the wheel mount pad is where the wheel and hub actually make contact
