Quick question

15" wheels I am looking at have 4.5 BS (good)

But -2 mm offset, according to what was written on the paper work.

The wheel is a MKW alloy.

I see the MB72's are -14 (I believe)

Not sure if offset has anything to do with fitting/not fitting on my JK.

I've dealt with these guys for years. He was going under the impression that 15's would not fit. I googled around a bit but can't find much.

Thanks

Ken

Offset is the distance from the mounting surface to wheel centerline. Backspace is distrance from mounting surface to the inboard lip of the wheel.

Deep dish wheels would have more offset for example.

So would -2 be more or less?

Ya I saw that. Still confused though.

I'm trying to figure out if the -2 will cause any issues. Again the MB72's are like -14 or -15.

Or if the offset is even relevant to the fitting problems some 15s have on the JK.
