    Off Set

    The positive or negative distance from the wheel's center line to the mounting surface of the wheel.

    I knew about wheel offsets, but was not sure what measurement the 5 stud Astra Mk 5's were, I had a Belmont SRi which I fitted the Speedline Allesio 2 16" alloys to so I knew aboutthe all important 49 mm offset for them, but just wondering if it had changed for the Mk4 Astra's. Cavalier's have a different offset don't they?

    47mm on the standard coupe alloys. It isn't that important for handling anymore, but you have to still keep near because of arch problems .

    The new Astra Mk5 is rumoured to have an offset of approx ET33 to ET35. This is what my source has informed me.

    The 49mm offset on the current range as we know is to do with Negative scrub etc, but with chassis design coming on over the years, the neg scrub is less important.

    My Vectra's 18's are ET41.

    Cheers everyone, I am due to get a set of 5 stud 17" Speedline Allesio 2's that are rare as....

    I want to fit them to either a Mk4 Astra SRi or Sport with 5 stud. Just wanted to check first before I got them.

    Cheers
