Re: SVO: wheel stuff
>Careful, don't confuse offset and backspace.
Oops, I was wrong, I did not read the e-mail carefully. I, now, realize
the difference the between offset and backspacing (always knew, just forgot).
Imeasured all of my SVO wheels the other night and came up with 5 13/16"
backspacing which I think is 5.75" nominal.
Your information you provided for measuring backspacing and offset is
really great especially for those on the list that did not know this
procedure. But I have a question:
>3. Offset = (Overall Width - Backspace) / 2
By the above calculation, wouldn't the offest on a SVO wheel be 0.625"?
Even if the overall width of the wheel is 7.5" then the offset would
calculate to be 0.875"
But Rod said his brochure stated:
>>The offset is 1.75".
I am confused, shed the Colorado sun on me.
