Stock Wheel Offset

Center Bore (Hub Bore)

The hole in the middle of a rim that exactly matches the hub diameter. It is located at the back of the wheel and as the car's hub goes into this hole it ensures the wheel gets centered correctly. Stock Z3 wheels have a perfect centerbore fit with the hub. How to fit rims with larger centre bore? Use Hub Centric Rings

Tire Pressure importance

A digital tire pressure gauge is a must-have tool for checking the tire pressure and keeping it within a permissible range. You can quickly measure the pressure once the visual examination of the wheel evoked a shade of doubt. Still don't have one? Review the best digital tire pressure gauges forming a perfect seal with the valve stem without leaking air, even at night times. Find a perfect combination by choosing the right car air compressor to regulate the pressure in deflated or over-inflated tires.
