What do you need to know about wheel offset and backspacing?

It takes precise measurements to make sure your wheels and tires fit just right, without rubbing against the fender, brakes or suspension components. While shopping for wheels, you will no doubt come across some terms like rim width, rim size and offset (or backspacing).

How is the backspacing of a tire determined?

A positive offset creates more backspace, while a negative offset reduces the backspace. The backspacing is determined by measuring the distance between the wheel’s mounting surface on the back of the wheel and the outer lip of the wheel.

### How big is the back space on a GMC Sierra?

### How is the backspace of a car determined?

A positive offset creates more backspace, while a negative offset reduces the backspace. The backspacing is determined by measuring the distance between the wheel’s mounting surface on the back of the wheel and the outer lip of the wheel. Like offset, each wheel’s backspacing depends on the vehicle’s size and design.
