Ok that stuff I don't know....and wouldn't that be hard to come up with since just about every rim that can bolt onto these cars has a different off set?

Offset varies by application. For instance, a 5x115 16" wheel for a RWD application will have a different rim offset that is NOT compatible with a FWD. However, spacers can be used.

More complicated than most imagine, but it does open a new world of rims available for us, if you know what you can run in certain situations.

Ok, i see it now. I never knew how to use spacers correctly anyways, so I just stuck with recomendations out there. Still, there aint a bad selection for us Bonne guys though.
