Anyone know what the offset is on the stock 10" rims and if there is room for additional offset toward the inside?

Offset is 5+2
So the rims are only 7" wide and not 10"? Is there room to put more than 2" offset toward the center of the car? Like a 4" to 5" offset?

OK, but I know I'll be sitting in 22 and see an XX driving up, I'm pretty sure who it will be. Then again, it might be Joey, God forbid! You pulling up is usually the "Official" opening of the season!

Though I try not to raise old threads from the dead, I wanted to update the stock backspacing / offset info on the XX.

I've seen 5+2 "published" in a lot of forums, but that can't be accurate since the rims are only 6" wide. I took the time to measure the wheels, and while I was at it I noticed there is a lot of info cast into the backside of the spokes. Load rating is 1000 lbs, and another spoke had something like ET 55.

I suspected the 55 was the offset, and my measurements and calculations differ by only .040" or 1mm. Considering I'm measuring from the floor and using blocks of wood to span the outside of the rim beads, that's pretty much dead-on. If offset is 55mm (~2 1/8"), then backspacing in nice round numbers is 5+1. My measurements confirm this.
