Default Wheel offset? What sits closer to middle of car 48 or 53"?

Just wanted to check to see what the offset #'s mean....

As the number becomes lower 53 to 48 to 45... does the rim site closer to the center of the car or further away from the center of the car??

Offset is the distance from the centerline of the rim to the hub interface. That should be enough info for you to figure out the answer.

with 2 wheels at the same width, say 7.5", the one with the +53 will be closer to the middle of the car.

Thanks... I have been wasting my time looking for 16x7" 53 for my 2002 wagon, when I should have gone to 45 STi 7" rims...

Thx

p.s. fenders are rolled
