Re: Backspacing

Back spacing (or offset) is the biggest problem with getting wheels at the salvage yard. That's why you have to match up the stamping letters that are by the valve core hole on a steel wheel and cast into the back on an aluminum wheel. People will trash a wheel and go to a salvage yard thinking they're all the same. Big time handling problems..

GOOD TIP!!! [img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img]
