Default Wheel offset & back-spacing

I've acquired an '01 SSEi and it'* presently got the PF5 16" wheels on it that I really don't care for. If anyone has one of these wheels off the car less the tire I'd be interested in the "back-spacing" dimension. Saves me the aggravation of removing the wheel from the car that'* 20 miles from me!

I've got a set of 16" cross-lace wheels that I had professionally refinished in white for my '93 SSEi and I've considered having them refinished in the code 76 for my '01 SSEi. It'* either do this or a different wheel. If I do a different wheel I'll be selling I'm sure the white cross-lace wheels from the '93. The code 76 wasn't my first choice for the '01 but often we don't have choices when shopping "used!

I'm interested in also the back-spacing of the 17" wheels used from '00 to '05 to compare wheel/tire fitment. If you could measure accurately the back-spacing of any of these (N93, N94, N89) I'd appreciate the information. I'd also appreciate the back-spacing of the cross-lace if anyone has one lying around!

I'm guessing that the 16 X 7 wheel is maybe 5.75 back-spacing which would give me an offset of nearly 45 mm. I can better use the offset for wheel/tire combination comparisons and most front wheel drive wheel offsets are usually only referred to by low, medium or high.

If someone is in the Washington DC area and has wheels or tires/wheels for sale I'd maybe be interested!
