Billet Specialties Takes The Guesswork Out Of Wheel Measuring

New wheels are a big investment, and everybody wants to get the most width possible and the correct offset for their application. Figuring out what fits can be a challenge, though – look at any online forum and you won’t have to search too hard to find a bunch of threads with “will this fit?” in the subject line. And that’s just for basically stock vehicles – throw in wildcards like coilover conversions, narrowed rearends, mini tubs, and big brakes, and you better know exactly how to measure before you order if you want to avoid making an expensive mistake. At best, you end up with tires that rub at full lock or when you launch. At worst, you cut a sidewall at the top end, and the price tag for picking the wrong wheels goes through the roof.

Billet Specialties realizes that an educated customer is a happy customer, and if you get wheels that fit the first time around, you’re a lot more likely to come back next time, too. To make that happen, they’ve put together a comprehensive wheel measuring guide that puts together all the measurements you’ll need to take in one place. Give them the information, and they’ll come up with a suggested fitment for your individual combination of suspension, brakes, and bodywork. Just imagine it: No spacers, no attacking the calipers with a die grinder, no rubbing, no stinkbug stance, no rolling the fenders with a baseball bat. If that sounds like a good deal, check out their competition wheels page, grab a tape measure, and start writing some numbers down.
