WHAT DOES STAGGERED and NON-SAGGERED WHEELS MEAN?
Staggered wheels is when the Front Wheels are more narrow than the Rear Wheels. Non-Staggered wheels would be all the same size wheels from front to rear.
WHAT DOES FORGED or NON FORGED MEAN?
Forged wheels are manufactured differently, creating a lighter, stronger wheel. Forged wheels are a popular choice for extremely high performance vehicles because the lighter the wheel is the more horsepower to the ground because the wheels can turn faster than a heavier wheel. Forged wheels generally have a higher price than non-forged alloy wheels do to the manufactureing process. A lighter wheels can also help with better gas mileage. Non-Forged alloy wheels are generally bewteen 2 to 4 pounds heaver than forged wheels and for most vehicle cutomers Non-Forged they are still great wheels. Unless you're not trying to shave off a fraction of a second from Zero to 60 MPH then the Non-Forged Alloy wheels would be a great choice.
WHAT DOES CUSTOM MACHINED OR DRILLED MEAN?
Some manufacture have wheels called "Blanks" These have no Bolt Patterens / Hub Bores drilled and the offset can be machined/shaved off for many different vehicle custom fitments. This would be considered a special order because they would by custom fitted for your vehicle.
WHAT DOES WHEEL OFFSET MEAN?
Different vehicles and or wheel sizes require different offsets. This is where the back portion of the wheel that meets the hub of your vehicle that either pushes the wheels under the car or brings the wheels out to the fender and the offset would depend on the Year, Make, Model of vehicle and wheel size.
WHAT IS AN AGGRESIVE WHEEL FITMENT?
This means that the wheels may stick out from the fender and depending on how aggresive the fitment is your vehicle may or may not require other modifications such as Stretched tires, Fender Rolling, Spacers, Lowering w/camber unjustment ect.
WHAT IS A LUG PATTEREN?
Different vehicle makes have different lug patterns "For Example" 5x120" / 5x114.3" and the wheels would need to have the same Lug Hole pattern of your vehicle to fit correctly. This is the diameter of the circle that goes through the center of the bolt holes.
WHAT IS A HUB BORE?
This is the Hole in the rear center of the wheel that needs to match the hub on your vehicle. Many aftermarket wheels are drilled to a larger hub bore to fit many makes and models and may require hub rings which reduces the hub bore size to fit correctly. If the wheels are Hub Centric to your vehicle than Hub Rings are not necassary. We usally supply FREE Hub Rings if needed.
WHAT DOES HUB CENTRIC MEAN?
This means that the wheels hub bore fits the hub of your vehicle without Hub Rings. Hub Rings are very comand and reduces the wheels hub bore to fit your vehicles hub. If they are not the correct size or your wheel mechanic doesn't install them you may get a little vibration like a bad balance wheel/tire,
WHAT ARE CONCAVE WHEELS?
This means the spokes that go from the outside of the wheels lip and slope in as they meet the center portion of the wheel "Example" like a funnel. Generally the wider the wheel the deeper the concave on these types of wheels and offset may change the concavity. If you want a Staggered fitment, the rears wheels would be more concave than the fronts because the front wheels would be more narrow than rears.
