i want to get some 18" XD Monsters for my 2006 titan SE, but am confused about offset and backspacing. can someone please explain this to me. and also what offset and backspacing do i need?
Backspacing is the distance from the rim's mounting flange surface to the back edge of the inside side of the rim, like if you laid the rim on the ground with the finished side up, and stuck a tape measure to the ground and measure up to the mounting surface. The '04 to '07 stock 18x8" SE and LE rims have a 5.5" backspacing, and the XE and Off Road package 17x7.5" rims have a 5.375" backspacing.hondadavi161 said:i want to get some 18" XD Monsters for my 2006 titan SE, but am confused about offset and backspacing. can someone please explain this to me. and also what offset and backspacing do i need?
You're welcome ... and :futwice: Lolhondadavi161 said:thanks for the explenation, offset and backspacing is more clear to me now. and btw, i was planning on getting the 18x9 Monsters with some street tires for now, and when i get the money get a 6" fabtech lift and 35/12.5/18 toyo open country m/t tires.:futwice:
But since these aftermarket rims are an inch wider than stock SE rims, the tire at the sidewall will be about 0.4" wider than it would be on the stock 8" rims, but half of that would go to the inside of the rim and half to the outside ... so if you go with the 5.71" b.s. this will also stick the rim in 0.21" more than stock, and your tires will be 0.41" closer to the spindle.All the kits can run STOCK wheels and run 35" tires (exception is the CST kit on stock wheels with 325 tires or Toyo/Nitto MT...the lugs will hit the spindle). I don’t care what any one says, we do it everyday. All the kits can use aftermarket coilovers.
