Selling CE28N Volk rims but need the offset for a 200sx... Help :(

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I want to sell my rims that came off my Nissan 200 SX but I cant see anywhere on the rims where an offset is engraved.

 

The only information I have is (18 x 8 1/2 J 5H /114.3) 80 38 19ND

 

How do I work out the offset of them considering that there seem to be 5 options.

 

Cheers

They don't have ET30 or similar written anywhere?

Thanks :)

I've checked this post - which i think ill have to resort to, but no, nothing. Unless there is something written under the tyre???

Looks like they are 8.5, so could be 25, 30, 40, 47 or 52 according to Rays (the 5 options mentioned).

I'm so confussed... Baaa its annoying lol

I've bought them / or he helped me get the right ones, ages ago off a guy called Eugyne (Mx Fly) back in the day, But highly doubt that he'll have any record of which ones they were.

If you read one of the many tutorials about measuring offsets from the internet, then get out your trusty measuring stick and do some simple math, you should be able to get an accurate answer.

Yeah, I think I'll have to resort to working it out manually too. My only concern is that there are tyres on the rims so I'd want it to be perfect enough to get the offset accurate.

 

Thanks Pointless Dribbler :)

Shouldn't matter if there are tyres on them.

Take one off, put it on the ground upside down, get something straight (like some box section or a bit of wood) and place it across the top of the rim from edge to edge.

Use that as a reference to measure down to the centre of the wheel hub.

If they are 8.5s and my calculations are correct you need to minus 108mm from your measurement to get your offset/ballpark figure..

Remember they could be different front to rear.

Thanks for your help. The rims are the same all round - thank God!

 

I'll get my "Trusty measuring stick" out tomorrow in the daylight to work it out. Fingers crossed that it works out to be 1 of the 5 options that Volk have listed ;)

 

Will let you know how I go :)

ok, so i've gone with the advice of manually working out the offset and its come up with a perfect +40 for the 3 times that i measured it!

 

Thank God for that advice, id be buggered otherwise!

 

THANK YOU guys, you've been a great help!

 

Cheers,

Chantalle :) :)
