Hi All, Could someone explain wheel offsets? What does the ET stand for? & How does one measure the offset? Will an 18" X 8.5" X ET 35 Mercedes Fit an 85? What machining would needed? Hub & lug nut angle, I'm a guessin' ? Any experience what tire size I should be looking for? Brand & model? I'm thinking the maximum tire diameter would be about 29" ? Thanks, John C... SLC, UT...
