Want to know what Ford Ranger wheels offset works best for you? Let AutoCraze give you a brief rundown on offset and the options available for your tough Ranger. Fitting up Ford Rangers have become our speciality. Whether it’s from the utmost rural areas in Western Australia or from the local Ford dealer down the road from our Sydney-based workshop. There have been a noticeable inundation of Ford owners purchasing tough new wheels for their weekend tourer or daily workhorses. Essentially, these owners all want the same thing; aggressive fitment, superior styling and unbeatable value.
Wheels are all about style and going with big Ford Ranger wheel offset sizes is a growing trend.

Finishes are evolving with even more ranges of colours available with advancements in finishes.

Yep, that’s how we feel when hear about another Ford Ranger. Any information you find here is to be used at your own discretion.
What Are Wheel Offsets? | Ford Ranger Wheels Offset
Firstly what is an offset? The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel, expressed in millimetres. Nearly every wheel has the offset stamped on it somewhere, usually engraved on the wheel as a part of the wheel marking (e.g. 17x 8 ET35 – ET35 means 35mm offset). The wheel offset can have a zero, positive or negative value.
The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.
The hub mounting surface is located in the front half of the wheel closer to the wheel face. This tucks the entire wheel in toward the brakes and vehicle suspension. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front-wheel drive cars and newer rear-wheel drive cars.
The hub mounting surface is located in the back half of the wheel closer to the back lip flange. This moves the wheel out away from the vehicle brakes and suspension. “Deep dish” wheels and wheels for 4×4 are typically a negative offset.
Picking the right offset is crucial and varies with different vehicles. If you have too little backspace (negative offset), then your tyres may rub the fenders and protrude the guard. However, too much backspace (positive offset) the wheel is more likely to rub the brakes or the suspension components. Often, when changing the width of the wheel, the offset will also need to change to maintain proper clearances inside the wheel well.

Ford Ranger Wheels Offset
So what Ford Ranger wheels offset is best for your four-wheel beast? However you would like it to look! Aggressive, subtle, low profile or meaty we got you covered. The OEM Ford Ranger wheels offset is +55mm, which looks weak and dull.
For example Fuel Off-Road Wheels have a wide range of offsets available: -44, -24, -18, -12, -6, 0, +6, +14, +20, +25, +30, +35.
For the Ford Ranger wheels offset to sit flush with the guard without flares a +30mm offset is recommended.
To sit flush with OEM colour coded flares the Ford Ranger wheels offset of +20mm, +25mm is recommended.
For those aggressive Rangers running wider aftermarket flares it gets abit more technical depending on the flare’s size. Maximising dish and concave is the name of the game with lower offsets. With a deeper Ford Ranger wheels offset, you can achieve more of an aggressive stance. So any questions about what Ford Ranger wheels offset would work, give us a call on 1800 099 634 today!
