Wheel Tech – Design, Features and Sizing

Curious about the design and features of your wheels? Confused by offset versus backspacing? This Carbage video gives you the details about your wheels!

There is more to your wheel than it being the thing that your tires attach to. There are parts designed into each wheel that passenger cars and trucks all use in one form or another. That’s why your wheels are more advanced than you give them credit for. In this video, Carbage Host, Justin Banner, will take you through each part of a wheel and go over some terms and considerations you need to make just before you purchase your next set of wheels.

The Wheels on the Truck. Or Car. Or Whatever.

We’re sure there has been a time or two when you’ve looked at your brand-new wheels, just before your tires were mounted, and thought, “why is it made like that?” Or you’re looking at a set of new wheels and where one manufacturer gives you the offset, another gives you backspacing. How do you compare that and why are either one important? Well, today we’re going to discuss those those features and go into fitment as well has how offset and backspacing relate to each other.

Support Carbage On Sponsus and Patreon

I would like to ask for your support on Sponsus and Patreon. I love doing these videos and it seems you guys always want more. However, doing videos means I have to take time away from doing other income generating work. That’s the reason why you don’t get to see me do videos and articles on CarbageOnline.com as often as I need to.

I want to make Carbage my main source of income because, not only do I enjoy it, but I feel I can bring a unique view in the automotive world. You can do just a dollar per month or opt in to one of the rewards I have setup on both platforms. You’ll also get exclusive content on both sites like galleries, podcasts, and more as I come up with them or from what you guys suggest. Head over, donate, and I’ll can create more content for you here and on CarbageOnline.com.
