i believe the offset is the tires wall width...so if ur car isnt lowered and u order 17" rims with a 40 mm or lower offset..the car will look alittle higher than normal off the wheel. hence..lowering springs.

i'm planning on getting 17's in the spring and going to try to keep the 45 mm offset. i wanna keep the car as bone stock as possible. just rims for me :p
Huh? Nope.

Offset is basically how far the back of the hub is from the centerline down the middle of tie width of the wheel.

Good job

Izzy...Post #7 is one of the best posts I've seen on 8th civic. You answered his question with a direct answer with a diagram leaving no way to misunderstand your explanation.:thumb::thumb:
