OK, if one wheel has a 45mm offset and another has a 40mm offset, which one would "stick out" of the fenderwell the furthest? I always get confused on this.
Does the smaller number mean the rim sticks out further (thus allowing you to run a wider wheel), or is it the other way around?

(Tight fit on back of my car with Shocktek shocks -- trying to figure out what offset/rim width would fit.)

Phat, the 40 sticks out further. Offset is BEHIND the wheel axis or hub...offset to the center of the car. You prolly want offset wheels around 32-36 offset range.

That's what I figured, but I wanted to make sure before I started ordering new rimz.

I'm thinking 13X5 wire wheels in a 10-15mm offset.
