GUIDE to Offset, Lug Pattern, Wheel/Tires Specs

Finally I’ve made a video explaining EVERYTHING about wheels and fitment. I go over what offset means, what lug patterns are, and how to read wheel and tires measurements and specs. This is only Part 1, Part 2 will go over Spacers, Hubcentric rings, Lug Bolts, Coilovers, etc. ENJOY!!

God damn your voice is low as shit and the music is loud as shit

BionicSammich says:

There are so many things you left out when it comes to sidewall size. First off, that number (45 in the case of your 225/45R17 wheels) is a percentage of the width (the width being 225mm), so that means for your 225/45R17s, the sidewall is 101.25mm tall (101.25mm being 45% of 225mm). If your tyres were 255/45R17, it would be 114.75mm.

This is very important for getting the speedo correct on your car. Using the wrong sized tyre will throw off your speedo. I will use my car as an example. My stock wheel is 17×7.5 and my tyre is 225/45R17. If I was to put 245/45R17s on, my speedo would be reading 100km/h when my car would actually be doing 103km/h. Using a smaller tyre will have the reverse effect. If I use 195/45R17 instead of 225/45R17, my cars speedo would be reading 100km/h but my car would actually be going 96km/h.

Same thing if you use a smaller sidewall tyre to get a low profile tyre look. With my car, using 225/35R17 in place of the stock 225/45R17s would leave me with my speedo reading 100km/h while my car is actually going 93km/h. Again, the reverse happens if you increase the sidewall size. 255/55R17s would have me going 107km/h when the speedo reads 100km/h. Lots of speeding tickets for me!

This happens because the speedo is programmed to the stock size of tyre and wheel. Changing your wheels and not using the correct size tyre to compensate for your speedos calculation will throw it off. Using a Speedo error calculator will help prevent this since you can work out how big or small of a tyre you need.

Also, stretching a tyre will usually throw things off and make the speedo read a little higher, but usually only by probably 0.1km/h so its not worth thinking about.
