    I know this will sound like a total newbie question, but what do you guys mean when talking about offsetting your rims? I've been checking out the site for over two months, even before I had my profile and I felt like an idiot not knowing.:verdict_in:

    Positive offset is how far the center ( mounting point ) of the rim sticks to the outside of the vehicle, and negative is how far is goes inwards. For example a +44 rim(s) mounting point is offset to the visual side of the rim, and a -44 rim pushes the mounting hub in towards the caliper or axle, and a 0 offset centers the mounting point " dead center ". Measurements are in millimeters, example +44 is 44 millimeters towards the outside ( visual ) side of the rim.

    Heres a great site and link to learn from . . .

    Will a +45 offset 16" wheel (07 Camry) fit a 78 Toyota pickup?

    im almost not quite sure but......... if anything, it may require the use of a small wheel spacer. the hub size may be larger than that of one on a camry so....... only a test fit on the front will render your answer........
