Pictures of the inside of ZL1 wheels

Has anybody here pulled their wheels off? Just what info is on the inside of them. I'm wanting to know the offset, but since they aren't cast I doubt that info is on the inside like most cast wheels.

Any one take one off yet?

According to this thread, front backspacing is 162mm and rear is 192mm. That work out to be 35mm front offset and about 52mm rear offset.

Yeah I've seen that thread but you can't calculate offset from backspacing like that. Backspacing includes the thickness of the rim edges which are usually 1/2" each.

This guy takes into account 1/2" thick edges and posted a closer approximation to what the offsets may be.

That makes more sense. Around 22 offset in front is very aggressive for that width. No wonder they stick out a bit.

Yeah, I haven't seen one in person yet, but I hear the wheels stick out a bit.
