I have done a search FIRST for all the wise asses, so please hear me out.

The question is on the stock offset. From all the searches I have done, it seems that it is +40mm right? Now the second part of the question, is it the same offset for all the b14/Sentra rims 14" and 15"?

My wife's 95 GLE has aluminum 14"ers and a buddy gave me a set of 15's he said came off a sentra also. Im "assuming" its +40mm also but you know what they say about assuming.......

Thanks,

-Verno

yea all b14's have the same offset. Also, if he gave you the rims, why didn't you just try to put them on to see if they fit? The 15's are probably from a SE-R

Just measure the offset yourself. It's simply the distance of the mounting face from the centerline of the wheel.

Go out to your car. Open up your glovebox. Take out your owners manual, and read inside. It has the offset in there. The 14's and 15's are bolth 40 mm, but the 13's are 35mm.

Thanks for the replies........

-I haven't had the opportunity to go to his house to grab the rims yet, im getting them this weekend.....SE-Rrims huh? These rims sound better and better:) .

Just measure the offset yourself. It's simply the distance of the mounting face from the centerline of the wheel.
-Can you eye ball the exact center of the rim? I can't. So how could I be sure I would have got it correct? BTW what is the rim width for the aluminum 14" GLE rims anyway?

Go out to your car. Open up your glovebox. Take out your owners manual, and read inside. It has the offset in there.
-I bought my wife the GLE pre-owned, so no owners manual unfortunately:( .

The offset will be listed (cast) into the back of the wheel. It should be expressed in ET. FOr example the back of the wheel should have the numbers 40ET somewhere. This is the offset in millimeters.
-Thanks for the tip! The offset was cast into my OEM Impreza wheels. I didn't even think of looking at the back of the GLE wheels! DOH!!!

Well, gee, you're not supposed to eye-ball. I said measure. It's really simple. Shall I lay out the procedure for you?

Yes please could you. With pictures if possible.:rolleyes: . Jesus. Where do I put my "metric ruler" to find the exact centerline of my wheel with tire mounted so I can measure the offset.

So with that said, describe to me how to measure the offset on the 14" rims with tire mounted with only a "metric ruler". How would I know the centerline of the rim when I don't know what the width of the stock rim is? I know how to do it with the tire unmounted and with a straight edge, but not with just a "metric ruler". Descirbe to me, show me, tell me, just don't be a d!ck about it.

Sorry if im stepping on any toes, but I asked for help not attitude. Im not driving a Honda, so should not be treated like one. I just asked a question, jesus......

Oh and I do know what 25.4mm is....it has it on my "metric ruler" too.:rolleyes:
