Steel wheel offset confirmation...

Post by 20129C1 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 8:17 pm

Hello all,

I realize it's only 2MM difference, but can anyone confirm if the OEM 18" steelies are 46MM offset or 48MM offset? A search here has both. I'm trying to mount a set of Holden wheels, but they won't clear the Brembo calipers. Trying to compare the two wheels' specs and go from there.

Thanks!

the offset has nothing to do with clearing the brakes , its all in the wheels design

the steel wheel is lucky it clears the brembo's

most factory holden wheels were not made to clear brembo's

I was hoping that wasn't the case. :( Mechanic said spacers might work, so gonna try to head to the tire shop tomorrow and see what if anything they might come up with.

are they a 18x8 ? i would guess they are the same or very close to the same as the 18x8 g8 v6 wheel , if you search the g8board , you should be able to find how much spacer they needed for the front wheel to clear the caliper

Yes, 18x8. Same hub bore. Ok, good to know. I'll look there.

Thanks!
