After putting on a set of Moda r6 18's, I noticed that the front wheels come closer to the fender than the rears do. Its almost as if the front wheels have a lower offset. I bought the wheels used from someone, so I guess I can't be absolutely positive that its a matched set. When I had my stock 17's on, I never noticed any difference in the way the wheels were lined up.

Bottom line...is this natural assuming all wheels have the same offset? I haven't had any rubbing issues or anything, so I guess it really doesn't bother me. I was just curious whether anyone here had any input on this.

Thanks.

If they're not a matched set, it should say somewhere on the back of the wheels. Check the inside of the wheel for offset info.

Our rear fenders flare out more than the front. Making it possible for you to fit 9-9.5s back there. So that might be a reason it looks like the offsets are different. btw, 9" - 9.5"....definitely bigger than average.
