Wheel Facts:
6 x 130mm, 84.1mm bore
245/75/16 stock tire size
Factory Steel - 16 x 6.5, 54mm offset
Factory Alloy - 16 x 6.5, 63mm offset
* Numerically smaller offset makes wheel stick out further
* Offset is measured from center of wheel to mounting surface
* Wider wheels will make tires bulge less. The inner clearance may be less than factory wheels when comparing to aftermarket wheels at the wheel flange, but the strut/tire interference occurs towards the middle of the tire bulge. Less tire bulge will keep the tire away from the strut in some of these situations. We are taking notes as we mount wide tires on aftermarket wheels.  The offset calculations help to get a ballpark for fitment. Tire bulge and manufacture can be different when mounted.
