What's the difference between high positive offset and medium offset on wheels for jeeps.

the off set of a wheel is the distance the centre of the rim is set from the face of the hub
it is used when the tyre fitted hits inside the wheel well and more space is needed to facilitate the turning before the wheel fits
IN effect it moves the load on the bearings from the larger inner bearing out towards the smaller outer bearing and that increases the load on the stub axle
medium off may be 1/2 inch out and high off set may be an inch
the gain is a wider track for better stability on slopes
the disadvantage is increased bearing failure , stub axle failure and tyre wear from wheel geometry problems ( wheel alignment)
there is negative off set where the centre of the rim is moved towards the vehicle
rim off set is what you want instead of spacer plates which increase the load on the studs causing them to snap off
Talk with a tyre shop to get the best for what you want

How do I get the setting for 26-inch rims?

i would advise going to a tyre and wheel stockist/retailer as they will have a data base of all the different rim specs, will be slightly different for different vehicles etc

What's the biggest tire I can fit on a stock height 95 gc 2wd on 15x7 rims with no problems?

probably be a 195 ?/15. talk with a tyre dealer as the width of the tyre will depend on the bulge past the rim edge. If the beads of the tyre are not within a distance then the tyre will wear either on the centre of the tread (177 will make the beads be too far apart and so bend the centre of the tread up off the road regardless of the pressure) and anything over 205 will have the rim running on the side wall of the tyre resulting in tread wear or beads coming of the rims. I am thinking that a 195-65/15 will be the recommended tyre for what you ask but TALK TO A TYRE DEALER as tyres are expensive and the wrong size tyre for the rim will make you illegal on the road.

Caravan specs

measure from were the tire bead would sit from side to side, this gives you rim width. measure the distance from the centre of the wheel stud hole to the centre one beside it this gives you distance from hole to hole. the axle dimension measure the width of the axle were the wheel rim would mount against.

What other size tires can used for my lesabre

basically there is an optimum tyre that fits the rim but a tyre narrower that rim size will make the side walls sit up straight and will wear on the outside of the tread and a tyre that is larger will balloon the side walls and will wear the centre of the tread. If you want to go up in rim size then the rim width will be the same but you will have to select a lower profile for each size you go up. The tyre shops will be able to advise you as to what exactly is good and what is wrong if you make a bad selection

My 2005 dodge neon right rear wheel is wobbling a little and is visable when driven

Check wheel bearings are not failing or loose. Check that the tyre has been fitted correctly to the rim. There may be a ridge in the tyre just out from the rim edge . Check to see that this is evenly spaced around the rim. Check inside also . This is a guide to see that the tyre is evenly placed on the rim and is not held up on the bead. It causes wobble and because the tyre is not fitted correctly will not have an effective seal between the bead and the rim hence loosing air. Have a tyre shop check

Can i go from 14 inch to 15inch tires and rims

If you post your present tyre size (on the tyre wall), then we can offer you a suitable larger replacement diameter size.
The simple answer to your question is yes, you can increase the size of your rims, and lower the profile of your tyre to compensate.

The other thing I'd mention as most people who don't know much about tyres don't consider this, is that when you reduce the height (wall) of a tyre by increasing the rim size, then you change two primary characteristics of the tyre's performance.

1: Tyre wall stiffness. Simply put, the shorter the tyre wall, the stiffer the tyre is when cornering. This can be a positive thing and can reduce the amount of body roll, whilst increasing the tyre's contact with the road.
2: Suspension. The tyre wall offers suspension to the vehicle. Yes, it's not just your springs and shocks which absorb the bumps from the road. By reducing the tyre wall height, you will effectively reduce the suspension capability of the tyre and it will become less forgiving on road surfaces.
It's because of these two reasons above that manufacturers try different combinations to deliver the best overall satisfaction rating to the type of customer who is going to drive that type of vehicle.
It is therefore typical that to many people, changing the rim and tyre size will not always have a positive effect.
In fact most customers who request rim size upgrades, according to my own experience are only interested in the appearance of the wheel, but are often disappointed with the results in performance.
This is why I always find it prudent to mention these points to anyone considering a rim size increase.

Rim size increases, because resulting in less tyre suspension actually increases shocks to the chassis components, and will also tend to reduce the life of these components.

So just be aware of what you face, when making this decision.

Trying to change tyre and wheel wont come off

I was wondering whether you had it on a jack or not. Make sure the flat clears the ground before you start pulling it off.You can't be too rough or you will have the car fall off the jack.What I am guessing at is that the centre hub hole is not large enough for the dust cover of the wheel bearing in the center. Non stock rims sometimes come that gotta grind the centre hole larger.
Now to get it off. If it is in the air, take a sledge hammer and do some "putting - golfing" with it and sledge the rim (from the outside hitting the outside of the rim)on the lower portion, then rotate the rim 180 degrees and do another putt. If you hit the bottom, the top should flip outward toward you. Then do a 90 degree turn and give it a similiar smack.If the rim does not seem to move at all, then you are gonna have to hit it from the inside outward. BUT FIRST SHORE UP THE CAR, OVERDO THE BLOCKING,,,JUST MAKE SURE THE CAR DOES NOT COME CRASHING DOWN ONTOP OF YOU.Oil, grease, heat will not work here. You bolted up tight a rim that did not fit on correctly. Make sure that the centre hole is more than big enough. That won't affect the trueness of the wheel, the bolts hold the wheel in the centre. Jobber rims do not fit well. You will be using a grinder.If you have a dead blow hammer you might try tapping the rim to help break it loose. Can you get a pry bar in there to help? Just be careful when you tap the rim, do not dent it. The sharp blow will do more good than just trying to pull it off by hand.
