17x9 +0 offset

Postby chevyboi89 » Sun Jul 31, 2016 12:11 am

I'm not sure what 0 offset translates into backspacing wise, but does anyone have 17x9 +0 offset on a first gen passport/rodeo? Would love to see pics too. So post em up!

You can search the net for a backspace offset calculator. It's a 5" backspacing. Here's a chart I found on the net.

I really appreciate that. Now before I posted this, I found a post talking about what backspacing would fit and what would not lol. Now I cannot find it lol. I have the 16x7 in wheels on my passport and everything backspacing wise just tells me "medium offset" online. Does anyone know the factory backspacing on these bad boys right here?

Take them off and measure to the mounting surface on the rim.
Don't measure from the rim's lip, but the flat spot from the lip to the mounting surface. Thats your BS.
Then find your numbers on the chart.

The numbers in the above chart include the rim lip in the backspace measurements, so if you're using that chart for comparison measure from the lip to the mounting surface. Other charts may or may not include the rim lip, make sure your measurements match the chart.

Backspacing on your factory wheels is +38mm.

Thanks guys for the help. The more I keep looking I want to go with what all the kids these days are doing with the trucks. Wide deep dish wheels that stick past the fenders an inch or two with kinda skinnier all terrains. But now my question is, I'm having a hard time finding a pic of a 96/97 passport/rodeo with a 3 inch suspension lift and 31s. Most people I see that I can find posts with pictures have 33s. ( I saw a pic of a 3 inch lifted 2nd Gen on stock wheels and tires and had a good chuckle!)

My question would be would 31s look too small with a 3 inch lift?

Finally found a pic of what I was looking for. Well similar. It was a first gen with a 2 inch lift up front and a 3 inch lift out back. He had 32s on it all around. For me that was too close to the bumpers and too much tire up in the fender wells.

So I THINK with the 31s and it being 3 inch all around I will be pretty happy.

This is my ultimate goal for how I want it to look almost

Well I bought wheels. 20x10 -24 offset...I hope they don't rub once I get my lift kit. Calmini has me on back order for the next I thick it was 5 weeks...I love in Ohio. We really haven't gotten any snow yet...and I'm hoping we don't...until well my lift gets on the vehicle lol. Because my stock tires are bald. And no way will these fit at my stock old saggy height. Tires are 285/50/20s

On to the pics (obviously not mounted)

Sorry for the shitty shots, just got em home and it was dark.
Will post more when the lift is on and I can get the wheels on.
(Also yes, that IS an OD green chevy cavalier with a side exit exhaust and corvette wheels lol)
