Wheels.19

question [HELP]

   I couldn't find a photo (just a lot of spam, popups and cookies),
but i'll try: picture the rim mounted on the hub, which is either part
of the brake rotor or is what the rotor mounts on. (The hub is where
the wheel mounting studs are located.) Now picture the *back* of the
rim, where it is held in place against the hub by the lugnuts. Now
picture the brake calipers sitting on top of the hub/rotor, with the
inside of the rim jammed right up against them, and possibly even
being bent outwards by the bulge of the calipers, instead of not being
a little ways out. That's not enough offset. The wheel won't turn, and
it may not even bolt on all the way. Or it may turn under no load, but
rub against the calipers when cornering.
