146 ti 1998 wheels offset

Hello, my 146 wheels are 15" diam. and 6" wide. I want to change to 16" or 17" if possible. Does anyone can help me with the offset?
Thanks in advance!

Re: 146 ti 1998 wheels offset

The original offset for the ti is 38 afaik.
The smaller the offset the more the wheels protrude out of the wheel arches, i.e. you get a wider track from smaller offset.

Another thing to consider is that any wheel you buy is likely to have a 7 inch rim and this will also cause the wheels to protrude more than the standard rim(by about 1.5 cm I think).

I put my 155 wheels on the ti and with the smaller offset and wider rim they actually rub at the front while cornering (15 inch wheels!!)

I fitted some 17's to a Ti a few years back that were a Rover offset and PCD I think it was a 35 offset. They worked fine with wobble bolts.
