Discount Tire and Wheel Offset info.

I am having a hard time determining the Wheel Offset on the Discount Tire website. Here are a few examples.

16X8 5-127 0GBF

16X8 5-127 -6AM

16X8.5 5-127 -6MTB

From what I read, the info just after the bolt pattern 5-127, should be the offset/color etc.. but, how do you get an offset out of OGBF? With that said, does the -6AM or -6MTB indicate a -6 offset?

Without calling Discount Tire and asking about each wheel, how can I be sure that the wheel I choose has a 4.25 or 4.00 offset?

Thanks,

Post a link to the wheels you're looking at. I can't glean enough info from what you've posted. Maybe someone else can tho'

Ok, that helps... The first one you posted has 0 offset, so it has 4" bs. The second and third have -6mm offset so they are -6mm off center.

Oh, duh. That is a zero (0) not an O, in the "0"GBF

Now the others make sense.

Thanks IG.
