Hey guys so I think I need to understand the offset measurement a little bit better.
I've been looking to get a set of 5 pro comp 7069's for awhile now and finally have the money saved. Every retailer was ready to slap them on but one had said hold on wait a minute; bad idea for your jeep; the offset isn't right.
The wheel is 15x8 5x4.5 for bolt pattern 3.75 for backspacing and -19mm for offset.
My jeep is a 2000 tj with zero lift and 30x9.5 tires.
Is this no dice for that wheel?
There are things that all men must do at some point in their lives. Get a dog, grow a beard and own a Jeep.
What the 3.75 offset does is stick the tire out further. Puts more strain on the wheel unit bearing. But it allows you to run a wider tire. What size tires are you going to be putting on? That will determine what to do.
X2...Don't worry about offset, all you need to do is make sure you get a wheel with around 3.75"-4" of back space. If you get the correct backspace, you are good to go. Offset is simply a measurement from the centerline of the wheel to the wheel mounting surface. Back space is a measurement from back of wheel to wheel mounting surface, so when one changes, the other changes.
Will 3.75 be ok with my wheels? The place says they won't do them because of the offset
Find another place. They don't know what they're talking about. All 8" wide wheels with 3.75" back space have approximately -9mm offset. Probably half the people on the Forum are running wheels with that back space.
