LWB Rims Offset vs SWB Rims Offset


Recommended Posts

I have just bought a series 3 88" for trialling (RTV) and have been advised to change the front rims from the standard SWB rims to improve the turning circle by having a smaller distance, inner side of nave plate to inner edge of rim. I have been advised the following:

1 ton rims - Perfect but expensive

8 spokes - better but offset varies

modulars - same as 8 spokes

LWB rims - i have had mixed reports.

Can anyone shed any light on the difference between LWB and SWB rims as far as the offset goes, I will be fitting 750r16 tyres.

So is that 1/2" more on the outside , meaning 1/2" less on the inside as offset is usually measured from outside of nave plate to outer rim?
